Zines by Topic

This set of tracks is an accompaniment to “All the Dead Will Sing to You” and, like that zine, is developed from material from the upcoming novel, The Ugly Spirit: A Sequel to William S. Burroughs’ Cut-Up Trilogy, by author Gregory William.


To find out more about this project, visit The Ugly Spirit.

Ready for some new, queer fiction?

Take a journey into the Land of the Dead, a wintery landscape of loss and longing. In William’s book, the hushed Saturnine time stretching from Halloween to Christmas is peopled with strange characters: two boys seeking evidence of extra-terrestrial life, William S. Burroughs, a murdered traveler, a boy who appears only in dreams, and perhaps even Father Christmas himself.

William deftly interweaves narrative and dream, cut-up text and lucid passages, into a story that touches the unknowable heart of the winter season. And just when all seems lost, in the ancient tradition of the Yuletide, he offers us the dream of a long-lost ancestral comfort: Sleighbells whispering in the air, a warmth to share, the comfort of a chosen family, and a song to sing in the darkest time of the year.

Trigger warning for brief discussion of an incidence of a crime involving rape/murder.
