Buffalo Cold Spring Precinct 23 Bulletin, 1971

[Partially shown]

Included as Shoaf places this in periodicals, even though this is more a book. Burroughs contributes the complete issue as Editor-in-chief “William Lee”, layout by Brion Gysin as “Brion Gys”.  Also assisted by Mary Beach, Eric Mottram, Claude Pélieu, and Carl Weissner, Allen De Loach. 

As noted in Shoaf: "A note on verso of title page reads in part '…actually evolved out of various letters the author [DeLoach] was writing concurrently to William Burroughs, Brion Gysin…' Burroughs’ Dr. Benway character appears in several of the pieces but it is not clear how much input Burroughs had in the final text."

Published in New York City by Intrepid Press in 1971.
