Ten Year Aniversary of Burroughs' Death

Ten years ago today William Seward Burroughs II died at the age of 83. Since then conditions have developed according to so many plans outlined in the mangled body of work he left behind. The virus, cut ups, langauge clouds choking us in simulacra, the electronic revolution and the need for space - space beings, space filled with all manner of organisms living in the ruins of their dreams. Burroughs is by now no doubt running the biggest slunk racket in the Western Lands and planning the next great novel.
A fine video is now online Burroughs: A Document.
