Beatdom Updates

New from Beatdom Books

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.

To find out more about these new books, take a look on Amazon or at your local bookstore.

In 2018, our readers can look forward to Beatdom #18 (the ASIA issue) as well as the following three books:

  • Straight Around Allen; On the Business of Being Allen Ginsberg, by Bob Rosenthal
  • World Citizen: Allen Ginsberg as Traveller, by David S. Wills
  • The Buddhist Beat Poetics of Diane di Prima and Lenore Kandel, by Max Orsini
David S. Wills

David S. Wills is the founder and editor of Beatdom literary journal and the author of Scientologist! William S. Burroughs the Weird Cult and World Citizen: Allen Ginsberg as Traveller. His next book, High White Notes: The Rise and Fall of Gonzo Journalism comes out in November, 2021.
