Time Adjusters and Other Stories

Together in one book, here is Time Adjusters, in
which insurance companies use a new light-bending
technology to capture images of future disaster areas
so they can unfairly deny coverage; Space Savers, a
macabre blend of science fiction and the supernatural
about a sinister plot to control the residents of a
retirement home; Cut Up the Stolen Scroll, featuring a
stolen Beat Generation artifact and a secret message
that turns deadly when subjected to the Burroughs-
style cut-up method; Miss Glenly’s Dreadful Room,
with the ghost of Jacques Derrida looming in the text;
the bizarre and unexplainable saga of The House and
the Baboon, and more.

In the Introduction to this book, Mikal Covey says, "If
you’re lucky enough to have read the previous the
original
Time Adjusters, then you have the pleasure of
comparing the new versions with the old. There’ll be
debate and personal preference as to which you like
better but in the final analysis you can’t beat good
writing."

and other stories
“A fanatical satirist and provocateur, British author Steve
Aylett writes in multiple genres, usually simultaneously,
combining elements of science fiction and fantasy with
comedy and a high literary aesthetic. Because of his
unique method of narrative hybridization, Aylett has
garnered throngs of devotees in underground circles
who tend to worship him like a bogie in the sky. He is
simply too clever and grandiloquent for genre readers,
and he’s too genre for literary readers, infusing his meta-
pulp fictions with intricate networks of hi-tech and/or
bizarre novums. Like J. G. Ballard, Aylett belies, if not
capsizes, formulaic methods and ultimately constitutes
a genre in and of himself. A comprehensive study of his
singular body of work is long overdue.”  - D. Harlan
Wilson

Steve Aylett: A Critical Anthology offers commentary
and analysis of Aylett's singular body of work, with
original essays by D. Harlan Wilson, Spencer Pate, Bill
Ectric, Andrew Wenaus, Iain Matheson, Robert Kiely, Jim
Matthews, John Oakes, Michael Norris, Tony Lee, Sam
Reader; reprinted material by Alan Moore and Michael
Moorcock, and an exclusive interview with Aylett by
Rachel Haywire. Edited by Bill Ectric and D. Harlan
Wilson.
Books
In the mid-1990s, popular interest in Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg,
William S. Burroughs, Charles Bukowski and the rest of the colorful,
profane gang of "Beats" exploded around the United States of America
and the entire world.

Literary Kicks, a website born in 1994, was there to witness it all,
standing at the crossroads of emerging Internet culture and Beat
inspiration.
Beats In Time, a new collection of essays and interviews
from the archives of Literary Kicks, captures some of the freshest, most
insightful and most irreverent writing about a new literary "craze"
focused on some brilliant, eccentric old jazz poets, who barely saw it
coming.

Here's the tale of Levi Asher's audition for Francis Ford Coppola's
movie version of
On The Road, and John Perry Barlow's touching
explanation of how Neal Cassady inspired the Grateful Dead song
"Cassidy". Don Carpenter reminisces about a 1964 poetry reading with
Gary Snyder, Philip Whalen and Lew Welch, Laki Vazakas pays tribute
to Marty Matz, Ray Freed pays tribute to Jack Micheline, Robert Creeley
talks about web literature, W. S. Merwin and Allen Ginsberg get into a
heated argument over forced nakedness as Buddhist prayer, Patricia
Elliot describes William S. Burroughs's funeral in Kansas, and Michael
McClure describes, on the fiftieth anniversary of the legendary Six
Gallery poetry reading, what it all meant.

BEATS IN TIME also includes interviews with William S. Burroughs by
Lee Ranaldo, Diane DiPrima by Joseph Matheny, John Allen Cassady
by Levi Asher and David Amram by
Bill Ectric. The book's features an
unusual centerpiece: a long recorded email thread featuring over 50
voices on the BEAT-L mailing list during the hours just before and after
the announcement of Allen Ginsberg's death.
"Tamper is somewhere between the X Files and Catcher
in the Rye...You WON'T be disappointed!"
- Dr. Tim Gilmore, author of
This Kind of City: Ghost Stories
and Psychological Landscapes
, and The Mad Atlas of
Virginia King

"
Engaging literary fiction with compelling characters, an
interesting plot with twists, and the skillful layering of
several genres, including history, mystery, and a dab or
two of the paranormal."
- Claudia Moscovici, Literature Salon

Tamper is about a boy named Whit, growing up in the
1960s, obsessed with unexplained mysteries, B movies,
and strange noises in the basement. By the mid-1970s,
he is experimenting with drugs and dark notions that lead
to the ancient underground burial chambers in the island
of Malta.

If you like secret passages, Aldous Huxley's
The Doors of
Perception
, nostalgia with a Twilight Zone twist, arcane
historical fiction,
Tamper is your kind of book. The title
comes from a phrase coined by 1940s pulp fiction writer
Richard Shaver, who claimed that unseen fiends were
invading his brain -
tampering with his mind. Whit can
relate!
