Nova Express – William Burroughs

A Panther Book

First published in Great Britain by Jonathan Cape Limited 1966. Panther edition published 1968. Reprinted 1969. Copyright William Burroughs 1964

‘The section called “This Horrible Case” was written in collaboration with Mr. Ian Sommerville, a mathematician – Mr. Sommerville also contributed to the technical notes in the section called “Chinese Laundry” – An extention of Brion Gysin’s cut-up method which I call the fold-in method has been used in this book which is consequently a composite of many authors living and dead.’

Possibly my favourite Burroughs novel. I have this edition, and a few others. I like the Evergreen Black Cat edition, but this one is particularly lurid!
