Eyes Wide Shut: Genesis P Orridge on Brion Gysin
A Guardian article about Gysin by P Orridge
To me, Gysin was the source of the energy we associate with the most radical experiments of the Beats. He was the real source of the ideas; other people just applied them. That was a really important shift in my appreciation of the Beatnik phenomenon. From that moment I was hooked, fascinated and impressed by each layer of Gysin I discovered. As I peeled things away over the years, I was never disappointed. There was never an end to it. He was the only person I’ve met whom I would unquestioningly call a genius.

Good William S. Burroughs Site
I hadn’t seen this Burroughs site before. Here’s an excerpt from Nova Express:
Fastest brains preserved forever – Only form of immortality open to the Insect People of Minraud – An intricate bureaucracy wired to the control brains directs all movement through telepathic misdirection and camouflage -The partisans make recordings ahead in time and leave the recordings to be picked up by control stations while they are free for a few seconds to organize underground activities – Largely the underground is made up of adventurers who intend to outthink and displace the history of Minraud – Purges are constant
