Isabelle Aubert-Baudron: "Hello Interzoners !"


Hi all,

I hope this report finds you well. I have not written any since January 2011, mainly by lack of time. Though I have kept posting the news in the blog Interzone news , which has been regularly updated.

August 2011 will be the........ 14th anniversary of Interzone and Burroughs' passing away ! I can't believe it ! This report is a good illustration of what we have been doing since August 1997 up to now, and a successful experiment of the "Third Mind" Burroughsian concept (in human relations, 1+1=3) and of the non-Aristotelian functions of writing.


Tome 4 of "The Time of the Naguals" : Poems

The tome 4 gathering the poems of Interzone anthology, "The Time of the Naguals" , 146 pages, is ready and on line in pdf at

The previous tomes are :

- The French tome, "Autour de Burroughs et Gysin", 135 pages, on line at at and available in printed version at

- "Around Burroughs and Gysin": (a number of texts are not published in the French tome, and reciprocally).

Due to the size of the pdf files, they take some minutes to download : please be patient.

The next tomes to be published are:

- Interzone,

- Articles,

- Cut-ups,

- Short stories,

- Theatre.

I have started the next tome "Interzone", including the story, activities and group exchanges. The other ones have to be put in shape.

This English anthology is too big to be printed, so it's available in pdf, in free access, as this anthology has not been realized in a commercial context (see Interzone economy).

KATE VIDUJE: Lithuanian translation of "The Cat Inside" by Vasha Dadaja

Le Porte-lame : French translation of "Blade Runner" by Bernard Sigaud:

William Brandon : looking for an agent/publisher :

"I hope this finds you all healthy, wealthy and wise...
(or at least one out of three?)
In the past five months I have finally had the free-time to complete my latest novel, The Exile, The Matriarch and The Flood(working title). I am actively seeking representation. I would prefer to work with an agent before approaching a publishing house, however, given the opportunity, I would not balk at direct discussions w/ a publisher.
This is where I need help..."

Interzone economy:

I have put on line again in the old pages dedicated to Interzone economy, previously on line in the sites hosted by geocities. They contain the documents and the group exchanges at the origin of this research, with the different propositions and experiments, the questions we had to solve, etc. . See the pages:

- Interzone economy : which gathers the URL on economy from the start in 1998 to the blog "Pour une économie non-aristotélicienne", started in December 2010.

- Money ? : mail exchange about making our own currency (January 2000)

Some of those experiments worked :

a) self production : see the catalog which contains the creations by Interzone members realized since :

b) the research undertaken in Interzone (see "Research") and the applications of general semantics in different domains: Interzone is one of them.

Some failed : physical academy, hotel, etc., mainly due to the limits inherent to objective practical conditions (distance, etc.).

But definitely this research has been useful, and the realizations done wold not have been possible without it.

Presently, considering the economic situation, I think we'd better keep on digging the subject.

New projects:

Ricardo Mbarkho : Grading the Lebanese constitution:

"Grading the Lebanese Constitution' is a web based project by Ricardo Mbarkho where people can give a grade for any and every article of the actual Lebanese Constitution. An Overall Average Grade is constantly displayed and updated. This grading centered project with its mass evaluation process implies different ways of reading the numbers and graphs of all the statistical results. It's a work that deals with data interpretation to offer multiple analysis levels relative to our emotional and rational attitude toward the constitution. Site at :" . (May 15th 2011)

"I've been investing ways to participate in a collective online setting, in order to have a critical look at our place as citizens. Grading a constitution's articles was inspired from my teaching practices (giving grades) that I transpose here into a non scientific frame, so the displayed values in the project here are meant to stimulate the imagination and to reflect a public emotion as well as a rational attitude.
This project is a continuation of what I've been caring about since at least 2005, when I sketched a project where people can shape online an imaginary (utopian) country based on the true model of the real Lebanon (constitution, geography, history, culture, etc.).

William Brandon : APB - I have finished the novel, now I need an agent/publisher..

I hope this finds you all healthy, wealthy and wise...
(or at least one out of three?)

In the past five months I have finally had the free-time to complete my latest novel, The Exile, The Matriarch and The Flood(working title). I am actively seeking representation. I would prefer to work with an agent before approaching a publishing house, however, given the opportunity, I would not balk at direct discussions w/ a publisher.

This is where I need help...

My last novel was under contract for seven years. Although copies of the book were available at all times, the publisher did nothing in the way of promotion or sales. (Not to mention completely confrontational regarding royalties) It was a very disappointing experience. I am seeking to be involved in a full-fledged promotional campaign and I am willing to travel extensively to do so.

If any of you know, or know of, agents and/or publishers seeking novels and/or short fiction please send me their information. I will begin the query process in the next few weeks and any additional leads are greatly appreciated!

Additionally, I am seeking active representation for my first and second novels as well as a collection of short stories. If the agent/publisher you have in mind is interested in seeing more material, the following is a list of available work for publication:

The Exile, The Matriarch and The Flood (novel) - 2011
(approx. 100,000 words)
Humanity has outlived it's archaic myths, the old stories no longer bring catharsis and have evolved into intellectual institutions of control. Victor Loingsech, the Exile, is facing unemployment for the first time in over a decade. He takes his severance pay to Dublin, Ireland in search of inspiration and to quell his terminal ennui. He returns to Los Angeles defeated; he has realized that his unhappiness is not location-based. Victor begins working on a novel about "rain" before disappearing forever and leaving the unfinished manuscript to be found by his confidant Ian McNeel.

Erlyst Rae Atropos, the Matrirch, wakes from a long sleep paralyzed. She is the viscious, heartless matriarch of the Atropos Empire. Her husband, a very abusive philanderer, dies mysteriously and Erlyst is forced to fight off corporate hyenas unable to trust a single person she knows. The re-lived and fresh pain and suffering prove too much and Erlyst decides to exert her the control over the life she forfeited for wealth. While trying to throw herself in front of a subway train, Erlyst is interrupted by a man who saves her life and then wanders off into obscurity. When she wakens, she plots her revenge; her family, her Empire and the strange man from the subway must be imprisoned as she has been. Erlyst hires a shady B-movie producer to create a reality-tv program about the Atropos Empire in order to shine bright lights on the shadowy lives surrounding her.

Il Diluvio is a raistorm that submerges Los Angeles and creates a massive refugee crisis that sparks talk between states of seccession from the Union. Led by the psychotic Mayor Alaman of Los Angeles, rebel states begin to wage a civil war against the Federal Government. The United States is drained and defeated by internal warfare and becomes an isolated micro-power again. The RTVS is a brilliant plan to turn the majority of American society into a series of tailor-made Reality Programs using product placement for foreign advertisers to create a "consumer paradise" in which Americans become an enormous commercial. A shadowy character moves through the events leading to and following America's second civil war and eventually emerges as the creator of the RTVS (Reality-TV Society). As the smoke clears in the war between RTVS sympathizers and its opponents, the US is nearly destroyed. The shadowy man introduces the myths of The Exile and The Matriarch to a future generation thus giving American society a new myth and a new purpose, and a new reason to carry on.

Unsent Letters to Crystal (Triptych novella) - 2011
(4009 words)
Erotic love letters in the form of narratives written from Dublin, Ireland, London, England and Los Angeles, Ca.

A Selfish Man (novel) - 2003
(111,264 words)
Uncertain about their future, Ian McNeel and his two companions forsake California. Embarking on a roadtrip across the country, they land deep in the unfamiliar world of the American South. Even there he fails to find his place. Instead, his emptiness spins out of control, leading him on an orgy of drinking, drugs and sexual obsession.

*Published by Publish America in 2003. This manuscript is no longer under contract.

Silence (novella) - 2000
(approx. 20,000 words)
