Spencer Kansa’s novel, Zoning, is set to be released by CoRP in 2011. Here’s a first look at its cover, replete with endorsement by the late, great William S. Burroughs:
The Burroughs quote says: “Zoning reads like an urban Céline.

In a few week you’ll be able to read his newest work, a biography of Marjorie Cameron, called Wormwood Star. Here’s the cover:
