Sebastian Quill -- Fall, 1970


During my convalescence the past several weeks I've managed to finish scanning and posting the first issue of Sebastian Quill, San Francisco's first explicity gay-male literary magazine which I edited 1970-73. I've added an intro which explains how the publication originated in the underground spirit of the late Sixties and early Seventies.

I'll post the subsequent issues, which featured writing by Allen Ginsberg, Thom Gunn, Robert Glück, Bruce Boone, Paul Mariah and Richard Tagett, when I find the time. If the text seems a little fuzzy, it's because what you're looking at is essentially a series of low-resolution photographs of the original pages.
