Some interesting photos of Beat writers (I hadn't seen before)*

And on the William Burroughs tip, A new book just came out titled "The Road to Interzone: Reading William Burroughs Reading". I'm actually pretty excited about this b/c it falls in the category of books I wish someone would write. This book is an (partially) annotated bibliography of books William Burroughs read, which on the surface sounds boring as piss (and I'm sure it will be). But his being such a literary magpie, when reading his writing I'm always wondering where certain passages came from. Now I just wish somebody would digitize the Nova Trilogy, then I'd be in business.
