Don't say we didn't try to help you in your holiday gift giving this year ...
Back in May we reported on the Beat Garage Sale
that featured numerous beat-related artifacts, memorabilia and items from and by William S. Burroughs. If you weren't able to make it out to Kansas for the event, you're in luck. Patricia Elliot, longtime friend of Burroughs, now has the remaining items online
for your perusal and purchase. You can even pick up a Burroughs' original Christmas card
, just in time for the holidays. Or perhaps a t-shirt, signed AND shot by WSB
is more your style. There are many other interesting items, ranging from posters to books to letters. Even if you've spent all your money already on Furbys, fruitcakes and McDonald's Arch cards -- it's worth the click just to browse, especially if you're a WSB fan.
