In Memoriam Eric C. Shoaf


RealityStudio is saddened to note the passing of Eric C. Shoaf on 24 August 2019. He contributed numerous items to RealityStudio, including his entire William Burroughs bibliography. We never met Eric in person but our correspondence with him began in 2005, not long after the founding of the site, and ended only two weeks before his passing, when he sent in the draft of an epic interview with Richard Aaron of Am Here Books. Eric was the author of a handful of books including William S. Burroughs: A Collector’s Guide, Gonzology: A Hunter Thompson Bibliography, and Tom Wolfe: A Bibliographic Analysis. Please join RealityStudio in wishing well to his loved ones.

  1. What a shock. He appeared to be firing up the collecting engines for another epic run. His scholarship will be missed.
