www.realitystudio.org Since its inception in 2004, RealityStudio.org has become the web's premier site dedicated to William S. Burroughs. The site provides news, analysis, scholarship, research, reviews, interviews, and texts. Its member forum is a thriving community of Burroughs enthusiasts that features intelligent fans, academic scholars, friends and acquaintances of Burroughs himself, and a variety of others who simply care about Burroughs, Beats, and / or avant-garde culture. Not surprisingly, Jeff Nuttall and My Own Mag are topics of great interest to RealityStudio.org and its readers. As part of
an ongoing project, we at RealityStudio are looking for images, recollections, manuscripts, essays, and the like on Nuttall, My Own Mag, Burroughs, and the international avant garde community that brought Nuttall and Burroughs together. Should you have anything of interest please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to your responses.
