Beatdom #6

Beatdom’s sixth issue will soon be with us. The release date is tentatively set at 2nd April.

This issue will feature CoRP authors Edaurdo Jones and Kyle Chase, and will be edited by David S. Wills.

The theme of this issue is “Travel,” and as such the essays in the magazine revolve around the relationship between the Beat Generation and travel. There is also previously unpublished work by Alene Lee – Mardou Fox of Jack Kerouac’s The Subterraneans – and an interview with Scroobius Pip.
