Interzone books and copyrights:

In Interzone Creations, a number of books are on line for free ( ) Following problems with people taking large extracts of my writings, I have protected the contents of my books and articles on line through the site CopyrightDépot: The list of the countries which can use this site is at Protecting a whole site costs 10 €, which I found cheap and simple compared to the sum of formalities to protect works through postal mail. I have used it since april for my doc on general semantics.

I have included a for the books on line which are not mine.

Joshua Berlow : Call for Dedicated Novel Readers & Editors :

Joshua Berlow is looking for people to read and write reviews on his next book : See the whole at date of October 30th

"The novel so far contains eight chapters of roughly 4500 words each. When I began writing it I thought of it as a New-Age science fiction story. As more of it got written, I realized that it needs more horror. I'm not adverse to paying qualified editors. I'm looking for dedicated readers/editors who can commit to critique a novel-length work, one chapter at a time. Each chapter will be sent out via snail-mail. It should be returned with any markups, comments, and the critique. Each chapter critique should be at least 500 words.
If you're interested in this project, please e-mail Joshua Berlow:
Put "Call for Novel Editors" in the subject line of your e-mail.
If you want to get paid, include any relevant credentials and the amount you would charge per chapter, along with your mailing address and telephone
number. Depending on the number of responses received, there might be telephone interviews. This e-mail may be freely forwarded, distributed & copied, printed out & posted on cork boards, etc.

* Words of Advice - William S. Burroughs on the Road NEW

New Burroughs documentary Words of Advice - William S. Burroughs on the Road

Words of Advice - William S. Burroughs on the Road
Directed by: Lars Movin & Steen Møller Rasmussen
Denmark, 2007, 74 min.

A portrait of the American Beat Generation writer William S. Burroughs (1914-1997) based on never-before-seen footage from his visit in Denmark in October 1983, and from his later years in Lawrence, Kansas. After having spent more than a quarter of a century outside of the United States, in Mexico, Tangier, Paris and London, Burroughs returned to New York in 1974. Shortly after he began touring and reading his work to new generations of readers and thus establishing himself as a cult figure. The film focuses on Burroughs' unique talent as a performer, and on his later work, especially what is known as The Last Trilogy. In addition to the historic footage there are new interviews with friends and collegues such as James Grauerholz, John Giorno, Hal Willner, Jennie Skerl, Regina Weinreich, Ann Douglas. Music by Material, Patti Smith, Islamic Diggers.

Premiere: November 9th at the cph:dox festival in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Only international screening at this point is as part of the Burroughs tribute event at the Paradiso in Amsterdam on November 10th.

The Cat Inside: Installation sonore et visuelle de Ramuntcho MATTA - 2007

Maison de l'International - Grenoble from October 23rd to 31st:

11am / 6 pm from monday to friday: - free entrance.

" Sound is a great tool to travel through time "

Ramuntcho has imagined the room 25 at the Beat Hotel rue Git-le-Coeur, where Gysin and Burroughs lived between 1957 and 1965. The room was an improvised center of intellectual and creative avant-garde. They used there tapes and tape recorders, they discovered through their work that language manipules us and that one can enlarge his perception fields using language. The question what is the use of a tape-recorder leads to the question what is the use of life. The question may not be what to do in one's life, but how use one's life putting it in question which carry new subjectivities : play with life to reveal it unhoped potentialities.

In this installation, sound allows to hear those technical experiments and the visual part instals us in a visual symetry, a moror in which one is not reflected. The cat purring with pleasure gives us the feeling we are the autitory witness of materialization of two spirits: friendship can provoke big upheavals on the earth: when principles of pleasure succeed to change the notions of creativity. One year before he died, Brion Gysin gave Ramuntcho 23 tapes which were , to him, the treasure of his existence. The sounds of this exhibitions come from these tapes."
