Royston Ellis

Gone Man Squared

First appearance of the British beat king's early works in over 50 years. Royston, who vanished from Britain in 1963, was THE paperback writer - as referenced by those Beatles guys. In fact, the Silver Beetles (with Stu Sutcliffe) backed Ellis and his 'rocketry' in Liverpool, as did Jimmy Page, who wrote the foreword. These writings 1958-1962 fill in an unwritten chapter in British beat history.
