Novy Mir Productions was a publishing company that specialised in anti-genre visionary fiction and music. It was operated by Max Volume for some ten years before it became impossible to sell products due to the increasingly draconian regulations surrounding commerce and capitalism in today's world.
The business was established primarily as an ethical business, and many steps were taken to ensure that this philosophy was the driving force behind it. Due to the fact that Max Volume and those he worked with were creatively as opposed to financially motivated the weight of regulation, financial responsibility, taxes, reports began to weigh heavily on the business. It would have been very easy to just ignore regulations and laws, not pay tax, etc, etc - in fact the Australian system practically invites this - but they did not. Having always believed that if you want to operate a business in a capitalist system, you must play by the rules of that system, or take your activity elsewhere. The latter was chosen.
Many albums and books are still being composed and written by the artists involved with Novy Mir Productions, but due to the financial system which is purely a method of social management and control, we are unable to sell them to you. Many of the bands that were released by NMP are still active, and are still hosted here. Work is under way to place all material on this website for free.
