Beat Scene No. 24 (Early 1996)

Warwickshire, England: The Beat Scene Press, 1996. First Printing. Stapled Wrappers. This vintage early 1996 number of the magazine-format literary journal published & edited by Kevin Ring in the UK features a lengthy interview of Ann Charters, pioneering biographer & editor of the works of Jack Kerouac; a long, comprehensive article by Kerouac biographer Gerald Nicosia on Jan Kerouac's disputes with her father's estate as controlled by his in-laws; a descriptive discography of recordings by Allen Ginsberg (part two); obituaries of then-recently deceased Jerry Garcia & Terry Southern; & much more. With many reviews (including of William S. Burroughs' Ghost of Chance), illustrations, reproductions of photographs (including an image of Jan Kerouac on front cover & of Nelson Algren on back cover), etc. A scarce earlier treasure-trove for followers of the Beat Generation, as the subtitle on the index page states: "There is No Other Life." In very fine condition, virtually mint inside & out with only staples beginning to rust. Very Fine. [Item #2075]
