wow, that's fantastic
. Hpefully too it might mean more people get The Yage Letters Redux

It's weird to think that Burroughs' rep may yet extend wider...

Fascinating article (and the Comments to it as well~) - maybe we will find out what happened to that "ton of Yage" the Russians took away in 1927 (see p xxvi in the Introduction by Oliver Harris to the Redux ) ......

actually, this reminds me of a month or so back, there is some new pop group who apparently made Page Z headlines after saying they used "a hallucinagenic drug called Ahayhusca to get inspiration for songs"... or something of the sort. I immediately thought "aha, that's another name for Yage, or Cappi banisteri" (or what have you!!) :D
