Love is the Actor

An excerpt from Tony Vigorito’s third novel, “Love and Other Pranks”: “Right, but there are different levels of acting.” Lila sat up and straddled him. “Maybe we act like life in all its sound and fury is really happening, but that’s different than acting like something that you’re not.”

Chasing Demons In The Night

As ayahuasca ceremonies go, it is one of the stranger ones, a night of ferocity, shrieking, madness, gallons of water splashed all over the place, exhausted helpers having performed yeoman’s duty, the rest of us relieved when Yuri’s screams have subsided and the storm around him has died down.

Cosmic Consciousness, Transcendence and Dissociation

Post Modern Medicine: A Talk with Matt Roberson

Roberson's strange new novel, Impotent, is the first of its kind. Bravely exploring consumer medication culture while simultaneously weaving a good story and hypertextual presentation, Impotent is just what the doctor ordered.

For many of us, the very real evolution of our awareness moves from the unexamined assumption of a victim mentality that blames others, life itself or God for everything that happens, to the astounding and liberating insight that we are responsible for our experience of reality.
