Inexplicably, William S. Burroughs has not been embraced by the LGBTQI community as one of our own, even though his queerness was central to his life and work. Fever Spores: The Queer Reclamation of William S. Burroughs serves as an appreciation and reclamation project. We seek to bring Burroughs into the gay literary canon. Editors Brian Alessandro, co-author of Edmund White's A Boy's Own Story graphic novel, and Tom Cardamone, author of the Lambda Award-winning speculative fiction novel Green Thumb, have compiled interviews and essays featuring emerging and established writers, filmmakers, musicians, artists, and critics, including Blondie founders and musicians Debbie Harry and Chris Stein, cultural critic and author Fran Lebowitz, Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Tony Kushner (Angels in America), filmmaker David Cronenberg (The Fly, Dead Ringers, A History of Violence, Naked Lunch), multiple Hugo-Nebula Award-winning science fiction writer Samuel R. Delany (The Mad Man, Nova, Babel-17), National Book Award-winner Edmund White, PUNK magazine founder and former SPIN and NERVE editor, Legs McNeil, Gregory Woods (A History of Gay Literature), Paul Russell (The Unreal Life of Sergey Nabokov), Charlie V zquez (Dreaming Out Loud: Voices of Undocumented Writers), and Burroughs's bibliographer and literary executor, James Grauerholz, among many others. Some offer critical assessments of Burroughs, while others share personal experiences.

The Inaugural Santa Fe Literary Festival was a huge success!

Collected Works was very proud to have been on-site all weekend as the official bookstore of the Santa Fe Festival. Bestselling, prizewinning authors and literary legends like Margaret Atwood, Joy Harjo, Colson Whitehead, Sandra Cisneros, Jon Krakauer, amongst others, spent time in our mini-bookstore in the lobby of the Convention Center and signed hundreds of books, which we now have in stock. So if you missed the festival but are looking for a signed copy of one of their books, please call us or come in to browse.
