Lovingly prepared by Joshua Marker along with a devoted team of volunteers, this commemorative publication of PiHKAL: A Love Story and TiHKAL: the Continuation features the original texts enhanced with complete errata, new essays, anecdotes, and reminiscences by numerous colleagues, previously unpublished photographs, and original art. Contributors include David Presti, Dale Pendell, Stan Grof, Michael and Ann Mithoefer, David Nichols, Jonathan Ott, and Rick Strassman, among many others.
PiHKALis the fictionalised autobiographical account of Sasha and Ann Shulgin's research and romance, exploring altered state experiences in the context of intimacy. It describes a wide variety of phenethylamines, their dosage, and their effects. The second volume, TiHKAL, uses the same format as its predecessor to describe the effects of a range of tryptamines, and continues the Shulgin's chemical love story. It also includes appendices that relate to cactus alkaloids, natural beta-carbolines, and drug law. In this edition, each book has been split into two volumes to make a collection of four, housed in a commemorative slipcase set. The set is available in both paperback and limited run hardback editions.
This combined commemorative edition was originally planned as a retrospective to honour Alexander Shulgin for his distinguished career. Though he did not live to receive it, it is a long overdue homage to his lifetime of achievement as an outstanding and original researcher in psychopharmacology and the unique impact he had on psychedelic inquiry.
