The Storm (1976)


Mark A. Sullivan began “The Storm” in 1976 and formed The Mackay Society around 1982. A few different people have been listed as co-editors, but Jim Kernochan was co-editor from Issue 4/5 to 14/15.  The last issue of The Storm known to UoE as of this writing is the Issue 16/17, and it lists Hakim Bey as co-editor.

Sullivan branched off and produced “The Arrow” as an official publication of the Mackay Society. Some of the indexing information was pulled from John Zube’s Libertarian Microfiche Project card index.

The Storm! states explicitly that it was “anti-copyright” (see “The Eye of the Storm,” Issue 2), though we are trying to get permission from the publisher before we post scans online.




“The purpose of THE STORM! has been from the beginning to explore and advocate anarchy — life without compulsory authority. In the execution of this purpose, we have criticised authority as it is embodied in the corporate-state and as it manifests within the various counter-movements of anarchism, libertarianism, and gay liberation. We have also looked back to those whose lives exemplified anarchy in action: Emma Goldman, John Henry Mackay, Thoreau, the European Egoists, and Voltairine de Cleyre.” – From The Storm, Issue #9
