William S. Burroughs photographs by Gerard Melanga

D8 12 SbI've always loved this photo of William S. Burroughs taken in 1975 by Gerard Melanga, one of Andy Warhol's "Superstars" whose photographs of that whole scene have always made me wish I was there for the fun. Now a poster-size gelatin print of this image is up for auction on eBay. Along with this shot is a creepy 1978 photo of Burroughs taking aim at the World Trade Center with his shotgun. Starting bid for the limited-edition pair? $16,000 (AKA "way too rich for my blood.") Link
