Interzone report of February - March 2010


"Virginia Woolf ~ The Great Frost",

reference to a passage from V Woolf's novel "Orlando".
Hi all,

Every time I start the report I have the impression there is not much to say, but once I have gathered the whole, it ineluctably ends to be a huge one. Well, here it is.

 Farewell !

Lyman Andrews

Lyman Henry Andrews (born April 2, 1938 Denver) was an American poet, and close friend of Allen Ginsberg and Robert Lowell amongst other writers with whom he maintained a lifelong contact. He also knew William Burroughs, in Tangiers and London. Lyman Andrews died Friday 13th February 2009 at his apartment in Nottingham. (Wikipedia

Jose Ferez Kuri: Salute!

Jose Ferez Kuri passed away on 25 March in Paris.  He will be remembered for his work promoting the paintings of Brion Gysin, William S. Burroughs and Kenji Yoshido.

Among his great achievements  was his book Brion Gysin: Tuning in to the Multimedia Age (Thames & Hudson, 2003). His work curating  Kenji Yoshido and  William Burroughs and posthumously promoting  Brion Gysin resulted in innumerable gallery and museum shows across the world.

On Saturday friends gathered at the Sacré Coeur where Adrian Dunbar led a ceremony on the steps overlooking Paris.

He was cremated 31 March at Pere Lachaise. Jon Blumb sent a photo from Lawrence, Kansas of Jose at William Burrough's birthday party in 1994 which was placed before his coffin. Yuri Zupancic from the Burroughs Foundation read tributes that had arrived  from his many friends on five continents.  Jose’s brother Antonio thanked everyone who loved his brother and celebrated his life. Among the readings was one of Jose's favorite passages from The Process by Brion Gysin.

"The sands of Present Time are running out from under our feet. And why not ? The Great Conundrum: "What are we here for?" Is all that ever held us here in the first place. Fear. The answer to the riddle of the Ages has actually been out on the street since the First Step in Space. Who runs may read but few run fast enough. What are we here for ? Does the great metaphysical nut revolve around that ? Well, I'll crack it for you, right now. What are we here for ? We are here to go." Brion Gysin The Process

Interzone news:

Since October 2009, the reports of Interzone activities hosted in geocities sites had disappeared, as geocities deleted all the free sites then.
I have put them on line again in and have updated their URL in the pages "Information on Interzone" at and .
2 reports have been lost in 12 years (April and May 2000), but the rest is on line: 137 reports, the most of them are in French and English versions . Though a number of the links included in the pages are now obsolete, the contents of the Zone's activities is still accessible.

General semantics:

  2. and Premier chapitre

Interzone Editions: English chapters of "The Time of the Naguals -Around Burroughs and Gysin" in pdf:

I have gathered in a pdf file the English chapters of "The Time of the Naguals - Around Burroughs and Gysin", which has been published in French and is available in printed version: see "Le Temps des Naguals - Autour de Burroughs et Gysin" , Interzone Editions book also is available in pdf. 
Those pdf of French and English versions are free for all the Zoners who wrote in the compilation "The Time of the Naguals" : if you want to get them, let me know and I shall send you the files with "YouSendIt".

"The Time of the Naguals" and non-Aristotelian economy: 

Concerning this book, "The Time of the Naguals", I need your feed-backs here: this book is a compilation realized with other Interzone members since the start of the Zone. I wrote the first version in the eighties, and submitted it to Burroughs to have his authorization concerning the translation of interviews of him by Bill rich and Victor Bockris, of extracts of "the Place of the Dead Roads", and "Last Words of Hassan Sabbah." A number of chapters have been added since : interviews of Ramuntcho Matta, and the whole doc on the reseach on apomorphine cure, realized in the eighties as well.
This book is the first tome of the compilation called "The Time of the Naguals", which contains a number of tomes in English, written by Zoners (To come soon: I know, I am late here and shall try to finish it before the end of April). It is too big to be printed, so all the tomes will be gathered on a CD in pdf or format for ipod.

As a result, it is a common work, so we must consider the financial aspect : 
- shall we sell it ?
- if yes, how much ?
- what shall we do with the money ? It cannot be shared among the participants because there are too many, so the benefits would be very small for each book sold. So I leave to your appreciation what to do in this area.
I suggest here that we keep on using the non-Aristotelian step put up in Interzone: for more information, see the accounts and progression of this research since February 2000 in the pages dedicated to non-A economy in "La sémantique générale pour tous" at Restructuration: Une économie non-aristotélicienne 
This research is an experiment of Korzybski's data on the use of money as a symbol of exchange (see "Science and Sanity": "On symbolism" , French translation: Du symbolisme (ch. VI) It rests on a scientific step based upon hypothesis and experiment of those hypothesis to see if they fit to the facts. As my first experiment since 2008 with Interzone Edition seems satisfying to me (it works, I can handle it myself, it is adapted to my means and possibilities), I propose to apply it at the scale of the Zone, as its structure fits to the Zone's one, so we can see the results then and decide if it reveals itself efficient. Such an experiment does not require money, just using what has been done already, and the means to our disposal.
