  • "Hyperspatial Maps" wax poetic with a couple of Salvia divinorum experiences.
  • "Galbulimima belgraveana, 'Agara' Bark" by Benjamin Thomas presents some history of the use of this purported entheogen, and describes his own psychonautical effort.
  • "Absinthe Not Absent... 'Absence" Anyone?" by Jon Hanna relates the legal history of this wormwood-based liquor, notes the recent end to its prohibition in Switzerland, and speculates on a potentially legal analogue brew for those in the United States.
  • All the above, plus the "Network Feedback," "Seeds & Stems," "Conference Review," "Events Calendar," "Sources," and "Book Review" columns.
