Softbound, with a quality matt cover and coated pages, the anthology aims to be an item you’d wish to keep alongside your books—as a fascinating read, an important research tool, and a beautiful artwork. History, literature, philosophy, psychiatry, and anthropology are all on the menu for this dazzling rhizome of pharmacographies.
Contributions include psychedelic pioneer, and founder of Transpersonal Psychology, Dr. Stanislav Grof discussing the history of psychedelic therapy, historian Andy Roberts looks at Allen Ginsberg’s poem Wales Visitation and the circumstances around its inception, and Dr. Ben Sessa controversially asks: Have we blown are chances of getting mainstream support for psychedelics? Jack Hunter concludes his two part history on psychedelics and anthropology, and Eric Turner examines transformational festivals and their role in creating progressive social spaces.
Writer Roger Keen examines the work of William Burroughs and the impact of ayahuasca on his writing, Victor S. Petrone and Dr. Antoni Gomila examine “stoning” in an ayahuasca-using group that promotes detoxification programmes, while Alison Terry recounts her trip to South America in order to partake in the brew. Former NHS psychotherapist Malcolm Davy-Barnes writes about the implications of Jungian theory on the psychedelic experience, and PsypressUK.com contributor Henrik Dahl discusses the connections between psychedelics and art.
Moreover, this wide-ranging selection of pharmacographical explorations is accompanied by some outstanding artwork by the likes of Emily Sams, Joel Whitaker, and Andrea Sciarne. Also, we are now accepting contributions to the Psychedelic Press UK 2014 edition (due out in January, 2014)—both illustrations and written works.
