Alex Wermer-Colan, Joan Hawkins, and I are working on a collection of essays, with a 2015 release date. Joan just finished editing another book, and now has time to devote to the Burroughs collection. We will be sending a formal proposal to IU Press later this month, then the real work will begin.

We are working on several ideas, but do not want to comment until we have an agreement with IU and the estate. I can say that we are excited about the direction we are going.
