PRAISE/DAMNATION FOR THE FIRST EDITION

"If you meet a man named Ian Winn at a party, make your excuses and run." The Big Issue

BACK COVER

"I LOVED (THIS) BOOK. COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN UNTIL I FINISHED IT. THIS NOVEL RUNS PERILOUSLY CLOSE TO PORNOGRAPHY, SHOCKS, STARTLES, PUSHES THE LIMITS OF DECENCY. BUT THE MOST STARTLING THING OF ALL IS THAT IT CONFORMS TO THE AGE OLD PROPHESY THAT THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST WILL COME WHEN AND WHERE YOU LEAST EXPECT IT. I AM NOT CONCERNED WITH THE IDEA THAT THE SECOND COMING WILL BE AN ACTUAL PERSON (I DOUBT IF THE FIRST COMING WAS AN ACTUAL MAN) BUT WILL BE A NEW KIND OF CONSCIOUSNESS BREAKING IN ON MANKIND."

-Robert A. Johnson, Jungian analyst and best-selling author of He, She, We and Inner Work: Using Dreams and Active Imagination for Personal Growth

THE DAY AFTER A WEEKEND WITH TERENCE MCKENNA I WAS OFFERED DMT BY A WOMAN I HAD NEVER MET....

Fifteen minutes later IT WAS TIME TO QUIT MY JOB AND FLY TO EGYPT

TO REALIZE A CHILDHOOD DREAM

in the Immediate Aftermath of the Luxor Tourist Massacre I found what I was looking For on the Great pyramid of chepren

The path then led to India.

Clockwise from the ghost of Grandpa's harmonica: coffee bean cowry from Emerald Bay, Jimmy Baba's aquamarine, the "stones of prosperity" and the Chepren amethyst.

 all these things are true

Although it must be fiction

(f*** me)

Did I mention the Messiah contest?

BUT PLEASE DON'T BUY THE BOOK OFF AMAZON (JUST YET) or the red book ever again

(I have long since been spared the indignity of royalties)

Although please do check out these lovely reviews
