Buffalo, NY: Book, 1969. First Printing. Stapled Sheets. Third Mind Books proudly presents the Glorious Intrepid Special Burroughs Issue (No. 14/15, Fall/ Winter 1969-1970). This vintage double number of the exemplary Mimeograph Revolution literary journal edited by Allen DeLoach is entirely devoted to contributions by & about William S. Burroughs, Founding Father of the Beat Generation-&-Beyond, among the foremost literary & cultural figures of all time, & the Patron-Icon of our very enterprise. With classic cut-ups, routines & other prose works, some also published elsewhere or separately, by WSB including "Last Awning Flaps on the Pier," "Salt Chunk Mary," "Roosevelt After Inauguration," "From The Cold Spring News," an essay on the "E" Meter of Scientology fame, a letter to Fellow Beat Founding Father Allen Ginsberg & more; along with pieces about WSB including by Eric Mottram (taking up much of the issue, the heart of what would soon be published as the initial incarnation of "The Algebra of Need," among the first & still most important book-length critical essays on WSB's work), Claude Pelieu (translated from the French by Mary Beach), Barry Miles, Duncan McNaughton, & Carls Solomon & Weissner. Large-format stapled sheets including covers (with front cover reproduction of calligraphic artwork by Brion Gysin).
