Hello and a very happy New Year to our readers. At the end of 2017, Beatdom Books published two exciting new titles: Mickey Harper’s Off the Road and Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and Rob Johnson’s Did Beatniks Kill John F. Kennedy? These rounded out an important year for Beatdom. Founded in 2007, this marked our tenth anniversary. We published a special edition of the journal in May and John Tytell’s second book with Beatdom, Beat Transnationalism, during the summer.
