The Fiend is edited by Aindriú Ó Domhnaill, and is an online wordpress journal and blog whose main emphasis is on poetry, mythology, philosophy, conspiracy-realism, translation, cosmology, critical prose, visual art and photography from any location, and any epoch.

The title of the site is meant as a half-nod to S. T Coleridge’s short-lived 19th Century magazine The Friend. The ‘r-lessness’ of this venture is an ironic gloss on the notion that the best friend is the friend one is wholly unprepared for, and is initially likely to demonize.

As of 2017 the site has become primarily a blog in style, although speculative enquiries and submissions of text by readers familiar with these pages can still be forwarded to the editor at andrew.odonnell.osp@gmail.com.

You can find sporadically updated readings of poetry, literary commentary and recordings of my music at my soundcloud account: https://soundcloud.com/user-185401382

  1. Hi,
    I just read the translations of Pasolini at

    Is it your translation, am I right?. May I quote it in an article?

    Thank you in advance for your answer

    • Francesco, massive apologies for getting back so late on this! Use what you like by way of quotations but please credit The Fiend, just so we can bring more eyes to these pages, thanks.
