Centennial Publication and Exhibition

“I am primarily concerned with the question of survival—with Nova conspiracies, Nova criminals, and Nova police. A new mythology is possible in the Space Age, where we will again have heroes and  villains, as regards intentions towards this Planet. I feel that the time of writing is in Space, not Time.”  —William S. Burroughs
