Beatdom Issue Six Cover

This issue has a “travel” theme. We have a long essay examining the journeys taken by each member of the Beat generation, as well as special features on Tangier (a Beat travel hotspot!) and the roaming of Hunter S. Thompson.

We have some amazing short stories by Edaurdo Jones, Brin Friesen and Omar Zingaro Bhatia, as well as a special, world-premier of “SISTERS” – a never before seen short story by Alene Lee (Mardou Fox from Jack Kerouac’s On the Road).

Finally, as a lead-in to next month’s “music” special, we have an interview with the legendary British hip-hop star, Scroobius Pip.
