Art should be its own hammer.
I didn't think the Miles bio was well received here. I couldn't get past the first 20 pages.
have decided to not scan but just photograph them, since it's faster and thus enables me to post a larger amount at a time.
Ted Morgan is a VERY interesting person in his own right. Hi was born into French Nobility as Comte St. Charles Armand Gabriel de Gramont and became interested with American life, changed his name and moved to the US. Ted Morgan is an anagram of "De Gramont."I read Literary Outlaw back in 2001.
Thanks a lot, Roni! I have´nt seen any of them before except for two or three. That's some great Burroughs photo book you´ve got.have decided to not scan but just photograph them, since it's faster and thus enables me to post a larger amount at a time.
Don't know, if these pics are commonly known anyway. If so, delete the overrun. If not: enjoy.
I´ve just ordered it from Amazon (Barry Miles: "Call Me Burroughs") and judging from the reviews in various papers and on Amazon, and from the many preview pages on Amazon, it's a real treat. It's a brick of a book too, 736 pages. I see it was released on Jan. 28. What a nice way to celebrate Burroughs´ 100th birthday (Feb.5). I´ll bet we´ll see many books, etc. on Burroughs this year.Anybody picked this up yet or plan to?
I've always loved the Red Night trilogy. I found the Western Lands to be a little slow and dry, but I think both Cities and Dead Roads show a very developed, mature side to Burroughs.I liked the Red Night trilogy a lot.

I saw a dream machine at an exhibition in Namur (BE). Didn't do anything for me but quite fun.... Again that was a replica. Perhaps I needed one with some of that old Gysin magic dust on it.There was a Burroughs exhibition at LACMA in 1994 (I think) and they had a full-sized, operating dream machine there. You could sit inside this circular kiosk while it turned. It wasn't the original machine but a replica.
If you want, sure. Since when did expressing an opinion constitute shitting on a forum? I give up. Plus your attitude stinks. Hopefully you have a moderator or two who can save you from yourself.I have a question - do you want me to come over and shit all over your forum?
