JR HELTON

I am a huge admirer of JR's work, which includes "Man and Beast", "Below the Line" and "Drugs" (which I wrote about HERE).  Check him out.

 

TOMMY TRANTINO

Tommy's book "Lock The Lock" came out in '74 while he was sitting on death row awaiting execution for his involvement with the murder of two cops in New Jersey.  It is currently out of print but in my opinion a true work of art, and one of my all time favourite books.  Henry Miller, Allen Ginsberg, John Lennon and a bunch of other big writers and artists agreed.  The death penalty was outlawed, and Tommy's life was spared.  Visit his site, and change your life for the better.

MEMORIES OF A HEROINHEAD

This is one of my favorite blogs.  Written by Shane, it details his life as an addict in unsentimental, spare, and poetic entries which are totally hypnotic and engrossing.  If you are in anyway interested in learning about life on the fringes, visit now...
