Since this hasn't been updated in a bit here are some others, but some of these have been surprisingly missing:

It's going down - news and analysis |

lib com - has a huge collection of texts |

It's sad that zine library no longer exits.

Some smaller text distros that I find interesting:

Ill will editions - curated collection of texts coming from an appelist / insurrectionary communist and anarchist perspective |

No new ideas - similar content as the ill will, but with more emphasis on afro-pessimist and queer and feminist texts as well |

E-book: Tarinski Yavor, Short Introduction to the Political Legacy of Castoriadis, Athens: Aftoleksi, 2020. Cover and design: George Chelebiev. Edit and Preface: Mark Mason

The analysis offered by Cornelius Castoriadis remains, more than 20 years after his death, as relevant as ever before. This is so as he manages to detect with high accuracy the problems that still surround us and the ongoing crisis of insignificance. From the beginning of his writings he reveals the inherent problems of bureaucracy, the logic of political representation, the consumerist culture and the capitalist paradigm of unlimited economic growth. This criticism of his remains evidently abreast with our time.

The project of autonomy, which Castoriadis saw as a possible alternative, forms the foundational basis of struggles towards a true democratic and ecological society. In his contributions to our comprehension of the dynamics between the individual and the polis, he exhumed insights about the psychosocial landscape modulated by direct democracy.....

Bruce | 21 comments also has archives for a ton of anarchists. I haven’t read read the summaries on the page, but It’s worth going to for the literature by various anarchists.

Toni (tonibashy) | 10 comments I'm surprised Library Genesis hasn't been mentioned. The URL regularly changes, so you have to search for it. It's a huge digital library with books in all categories.

Sadly there is no more zine library. Anyone know of other replacements or similar collections?

Barry (bobsywoo) | 7 comments Not sure if this is the right place to mention / ask but recently created a magnet torrent link to their whole English library. I can't get the torrent link to work sadly, but some of you may be interested / have better luck than I.
