WHAT'S NEW

 

As of June 2010, Tripping is in its Eleventh Printing, the most definitive and current to date, with future modifications limited mostly to updates of listings in the Resource section. The new printing should begin shipping by the third quarter of 2010, if not earlier. (Supplies of earlier printings must be exhausted first.)

 

 

My article on Christiania, the hash-hustling squatters community in Copenhagen, is in the March 2009 issue of the libertarian rag Reason ("Free Minds and Free Markets") available at your local newsstand and bookstore right about now. I just received my copies, so go ahead and get yours! Subscribing to this fun, incisive, and informative magazine is indicated.

Check out the December 2008 online interview of me posted  by Psypress UK (Psychedelic Press UK)

As of early 2009, Tripping is in its Tenth Printing, the most definitive to date, with future modifications mostly limited to updates of listings in the Resource section. New to this printing are new blurbs, index listings, and promotional text on the front and back covers, a few typo and other minor corrections, and updated resource listings, including some new entries and revised URLs. Virtually 100% of the corrections and changes I've requested have been made -- thanks to my righteous editor Paul Slovak, and my illustrious and noble publisher Penguin. The Tenth Printing should begin shipping by the second quarter of 2009, if not earlier. (Supplies of earlier printings must be exhausted first.)
