  1. The cover of the issue was conceived by myself and the work was carried out by master illustrator Waylon Bacon. I also asked Larry Beckett to write an essay to go with the cover, which is all part of the concept. He was kind enought to oblige.
    So when you look at the cover,
    It is based on the poem, After the Deluge, by Arthur Rimbaud…and which came to me in a 3am vision one night. A lot of people never read this poem and that is a real shame…so we hope the cover will make you want to read it and learn something about Rimbaud.

  2. If you do not have a PayPal account, please send a cheque or money order (or cash at your own risk) to Beatdom Books c/o Michael Hendrick, 904 Sutters Mill Lane, Temple, PA, 19560.
