B10 – What to Expect

Issue Ten is the Religion issue of Beatdom, and as such, pretty much everything from cover to cover concerns religion in one way or another. The list of contents is below and unlikely to change before publication. At present the editors are locked away, furiously deleting double spaces after the period, executing typos with prejudice, and altering the images by 0.01 inches.

Expect this to be in your stockings by Christmas morning, folks. It’s a-comin’.

  • yowsah! lookit all that literature...

    there is also great art work, too, but i am not sure if i know all the artist's names. i am aware of Ed Terrell, who did the great covers...actually, they were taken from photos of his series of paintings of Indian deities. we have Waylon Bacon with us again, with an excellent portrayal of lenny bruce, plus art in a few other places in the book. Kaliptus is new to us and i have not seen the work so can't say what it is...David...do we have more artists this issue?

  • I think we did dance. It's for sale, this issue 10. Thanks for including me in it. Keep up the great work!
