About this title

Synopsis:

William Seward Hall, who writes westerns under the name of Kim Carsons--a man with a mission to reorganize Earth into a more meaningful world--takes part in a shoot-out in the Boulder, Colorado, cemetery

About the Author:

William S. Burroughs (1914-1997) was an American author, painter, and spoken-word performer who has had a wide-ranging influence on American culture. Jack Kerouac called him the ''greatest satirical writer since Jonathan Swift.'' Norman Mailer declared him ''the only American writer who may be conceivably possessed by genius.'' A postmodernist and a key figure of the beat generation, he focused his art on a relentless subversion of the moral, political, and economic conventions of modern American society, as reflected in his often darkly humorous and sardonic satire. He wrote eighteen novels and novellas, six short-story collections, and four collections of essays. No fewer than five books of his interviews and correspondence have been published. He also collaborated on projects and recordings with numerous performers and musicians and made many appearances in films. He was elected to the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters in 1983 and in the following year was appointed to the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French government.
