Blade runner : a movie by William Burroughs

Posted to What Are You Reading?

Short novel by William S.Burroughs .Typical sci-fi Burroughs-stuff in which he tells a tale of underground medical care and government oppression.Blade Runners are the kids who illegally distribute drugs and medical equipment for undergrounddoctors.The world Burroughs creates in this tale is inhabited by lepers (Hansen-colonies) and terrorists(botulism-darts and other stuff).Mostly hilarious ;sometimes right-winged,and sometimes horrific.If you can get this small tale of future-madness(I ordered it in a bookshop in Antwerp and had to wait for fucking too long..),be sure to buy it!!!It's a must!Please post me your thoughts would be nice.
