Overigens, de rechtbank wou de map zelf helemaal niet hebben, dus die heb ik weer mee naar huis genomen.

Bij Uitgeverij van Oorschot bestaat een overmatige belangstelling voor mijn diensten:

Ik stuurde ze dit mailtje, maar een antwoord kwam er niet:

Beste Uitgeverij van Oorschot,

Met enige regelmaat tref ik uw uitgeverij aan onder de mensen die hebben gezocht naar mijn Linkedin profiel. Ik maak daar dan steeds een screenshot van, want het verheugt mij dat een Nederlandse uitgever zoveel interesse toont in mijn diensten (zie plaatje). Waar kan ik jullie precies mee van dienst zijn?

Met vriendelijke groet,

Martijn Benders


Mijn nieuwe dichtbundel is via alle boekhandels te verkrijgen,

Op hieperdepiep een interview met mij in de gedaante van Berry Lee Berry & the Benders:

About the author

Martijn Benders has published twenty-six books, eighteen of which are in Dutch. Critics such as Komrij and Gerbrandy have hailed him as one of the greatest talents of his time. He has also written three philosophical works, one of which is in English and focuses on the Amanita Muscaria, the Fly Agaric. Publishing on the international platform of The Philosophical Salon, he has also gained international recognition as one of the most remarkable thinkers from the Netherlands.


There exists a considerable group of leftist individuals who vigorously opposed the prevailing coronavirus narrative, including some of the world’s leading philosophers, such as Agamben and Kacem. However, this stance was heavily censored and vilified by what is referred to as ‘neocon-left’ or ‘woke-left’, as something associated solely with what they deem ‘far-right’. In my book, I discuss the reasons behind these actions, the underlying motives, and how this is emblematic of a new form of fascism aimed at seizing power permanently.

The middle section of the book is dedicated to poetry. It features a beautiful selection of poems from the Mediterranean region, by poets from Turkey and Greece, who have been imprisoned and tortured by the regime.

The final part of my book is a manifesto against literary nihilism, as manifested in the Literature Fund. It reveals how this fund is dominated by a group of Christians and ‘wokies’, which is undesirable in a free society.

Amanita Muscaria – The Book of the Empress is an exceptional work that sets a new benchmark in the realm of mycophilosophy. While one might be tempted to classify the book within the domain of Art History, such a categorization would fail to capture its true essence.

You don’t have time to read this, but that’s because you are no longer human. If anything remained of the original person within you, the old mycelia of childhood, you would learn a great deal from this book. In fact, its magical knowledge might become your most valuable possession. This is a book about human imagination and how it fell into the iron grip of transdimensional cockroaches. Additionally, it offers magical tips to significantly improve your life and time acceleration. M.H.H. Benders also takes a light-hearted yet scathing look at the entirety of Dutch literature.
