Interzone report: June-July 2012

Hi all,

15th anniversary of Interzone

William Burroughs passed away on August 2nd 1997, 15 years ago, and August 2012 is the 15th anniversary of Interzone, which started some days after (see at

Summer is the season for Interzone meetings :

- I had the visit of Philip Beitchman, in holidays in France. We had already met twice, with his friend Lionel Bloom, first in Coulanges  (Jan. 2003) and Thouars in July 2005 (see the report at ).
His stay was too short, as it's always a pleasure to meet in the flesh people who joined to Interzone since the very beginning and contributed to make this network what it has become.

- Last week José Altimiras and his family came for the animation "En ces lieux... le livre" which will took place in Loudun on July 28th (see below).
Interzone Editions was part of the animation organized on July 28th in Loudun by the independant association "Cutivons le livre". José Altimiras, the illustrator of "Le Taxidermiste", came for the occasion from Perpignan. We presented the books , and a dreamachine. Jérôme Pintoux, the author of "Interviews d'Outre-Tombe", was also present. (see the articles in Interzone News and Bienvenue à Interzone ).


List of the authors present on saturday July 28th,  Loudun (86):
José Altimiras, Isabelle Aubert-Baudron, Fabrice Bertin, Gino Blandin, Bruno de la Bonnellière, Michel Carmona, Catibou, Philippe-Michel Dillies, Roland Gaillon, Jean Gobelet, Aude Guilvard, Ghilmer, Gérard Jubert, Thérèse de Laplane, Gisèle Manreza, Gérard Menant, Sylvette Noyelle, Jérôme Pintoux, Jean-Yves Revault.

Aleksey Dayen. Photo by Pavel Antonov. New York, 2001

I have spoken over time about  the loss of my Russian poet and photographer friend, Aleksey Dayey, who died in his thirties from food poisoning, after having beaten cancer only month earlier.
Terry Clark, a singer-songwriter from the UK, posted information on him on his web site.  Aleksey was coming to SF to film a documentary on my life, and Terry wrote three songs for the movie. 
Ginger has copied the information (with approval of Terry) to a blog site she has created for me (which she administers).  You can access the site by clicking on the link below.
