BACK COVER #
Newly available and thoroughly revised, this early work by Terence and Dennis McKenna reveals the roots of the daring but disciplined speculations that prompted The New York Times to call Terence "the Timothy Leary (and much more) of the discreetly psychedelic 90s," and Tom Robbins to proclaim him "the most important--and most entertaining--visionary scholar in America.

BLURBS #
"Dense. Technical. Fascinating. Infuriating. Marvelously weird. ... [Comparable to] an alchemical text published in the classic period--the seventeenth century--before the bonds linking science and magic were severed."
-- Jay Stevens, author of Storming Heaven and coauthor of Drumming at the Edge of Magic

"The first work of cyberethnopharmacology."

-- Michael Horowitz, director of the Fitz Hugh Ludlow Memorial Library

"A tour-de-force investigation of hallucinogenic states of consciousness that combines ethnobotanical research, shamanic exploration, alchemical spirit-world initiations, extra-terrestrial contact and mathematical formulations of an I Ching-based precognition system, with edge-of-the-seat jungle adventures."

-- Ralph Metzner, author of Opening to Inner Light

"One of the most mind-boggling books I've ever read."

-- Jerry Garcia

"Put simply, Terence is a hoot."

-- Esquire
