The Beat Goes On!

December 16, 2017 by

Dear Friends,

The Beat I’m talking about here is the Beat Generation. And nowhere are those who comprised it more creatively presented than in Beat Scene magazine. Edited by Kevin Ring, it’s been going for nearly 30 years, during which 87 issues have appeared (with no. 88 due out any moment). The current number (Autumn 2017) is an On the Road special, celebrating the 60th anniversary of Jack Kerouac’s groundbreaking novel. There are in-depth articles by a host of knowledgeable writers, including Ann Charters (Kerouac’s first biographer), Pauline Reeves, Brian Dalton, Kevin Ring, J. M. White, et al; as well as two interviews (definitely check out Steve Turner’s with Luanne Henderson entitled “Hello Marylou”).

Further good news is that after an unfortunate hiatus (don’t ask!), Beat Scene’s website is back up. By following the various threads, you’ll find ordering information, editor/publisher Kevin Ring’s email address, etc. Just click on this link for it

Beat Scene Press additionally publishes chapbooks. Number 60 in the series, William Burroughs and the South Texas Beats, is a fascinating conversation between Rob Johnson and Juan Ochoa concerning the time Burroughs spent farming in that area. At once witty and urbane, it contains a wealth of priceless WSB insights and observations.

And while you’re at it, treat yourself to a journey thru Beat Scene‘s amazing history, which is here

Enjoy, EDDIE
