Product Description
for Ghost of Chance
William Burroughs returns to one of the themes of CITIES OF THE RED NIGHT, with pirates setting up their own country; Captain Mission in the 18th century established a "free pirate settlement, Libertatia, on the west coast of Madagascar." Libertatia's laws prohibit the harming of the lemurs that live on the island. There is a temple on the island which Captain Mission regards as the "entrance to the biological Garden of Lost Chances." When the temple is destroyed, the lemurs lose hope of evolving into a higher species. Burroughs then documents the wiping out of other species by humanity's greed, religion, political jostling, and diseases.
