Beat Scene, Issue 99, Winter [Late] 2020




Minor Burroughs content. There are mentions and light discussion of Burroughs in Kit Knight's "Tuvoti Memories... 1976-1985", pp. 20-27, and in Gregory Stephenson's review of Jim Welton's "Mack Thomas: The Total Beat", pp. 58-59. More interesting is the section "Mack Thomas and Burroughs on the Bowery" at the end of page 59.

Published in Binley Woods, England by Beat Scene Press in late 2020.

This copy was acquired from Third Mind Books (Ann Arbor, MI.)
