THE FINAL
POST-IT NOTES
 
BY WILLAM S. BURROUGHS
 

Notorious junkie, author and legend William S. Burroughs was still going strong when he died of a heart attack Aug. 2, 1997. Burroughs had a passion for text. He wrote continuously, generating pages of personal thoughts, short stories, poems and other assorted ramblings. When he died at 87, he left the world with a substantial bulk of work, including pieces he was composing up until his bitter end. Some of his dying thoughts were released last winter as Last Words: The Final Journals of William S. Burroughs. These journals contain a wide assortment of musings from his opinions on the United States drug culture to his observations on cat behavior. However, there is an enormous amount of manuscripts, diaries, articles and other miscellaneous pieces that remain to be examined.

Since his passing, those close to Burroughs have begun to catalogue his library with the hope that more of his unpublished work will see the light of day. A number of never before seen discoveries have emerged from this project. One of the more incredible discoveries has been an extensive collection of Post-It Notes, which Burroughs used to remind himself of things. Similar to the reflections found in his final journals, these small pages are succinct and subconscious. They provide descriptive insights into his personal life and his larger than life persona. Through the generosity of the project we have been permitted to publish a small number of these notes. It is our hope that readers will enjoy these priceless artifacts as further insight into the myth of William S. Burroughs.
