Transit No. 24 (Spring 2011)

Coventry, England: Beat Scene Press, 2011. First Printing. Stapled Wrappers. This 24th number of "a little magazine of the Beat Generation" published by Kevin Ring in the UK features this writer's essay, Back at the Pond: A Visit with William S. Burroughs, about my one-&-only personal meeting with the foremost figure of the Beat Generation-&-Beyond during 1995, originally published eleven years earlier in the journal FreeThought (see our Item No.s 1411, 1446, 1447, 3621). Also in this issue are poems by Sam Charters on his search for Michael McClure at the corner of Haight-Ashbury in 1967, Baby Beat Legend Neeli Cherkovski, & three by original Beat Icon Diane di Prima; a scholarly essay on the river motif in Jack Kerouac's On the Road by Gregory Stephenson; & more. Chapbook-format journal in stapled wrappers, first & only printing, with vintage Kerouac image on front cover. A very rare & important issue (if I may say so myself) in this occasional series by the publisher of the indispensable Beat Scene magazine (see our many available numbers) & limited edition chapbooks (ditto). In very fine condition with only a touch of rubbing to front, back covers & stapled spine; very slight wear & a few tiny bumps, creases at edges & corners of same. Interior very fine, substantially mint. Very Fine. [Item #5014]
