The Entheogen Review
The Entheogen Review was a quarterly publication that served as a clearinghouse for current data about the use of visionary plants and drugs. All communications were kept in the strictest confidence--unless otherwise requested, published material was identified only by the author's initials and state of residence. The mailing list is not for sale, rent, or loan. Think of The Entheogen Review as a network newsletter; the voice of a community of subscribers seeking and sharing information on the cultivation, extraction, and ritual use of entheogens. Subjective results experienced by readers were published too. The Entheogen Review was dedicated to bringing you the latest, most accurate and novel data possible on these and related topics--information you cannot find anywhere else! Edited by David Aardvark and K. Trout, past and recent issues feature writing from: Will Beifuss, Richard Glen Boire, Jim DeKorne, Earth Erowid, Francesco Festi, Jay C. Fikes, Robert Forte, Elizabeth Gips, Alex Grey, Jon Hanna, Mark Hoffman, Albert Hofmann, Ernst Jünger, Gwyllm Llwydd, Thomas Lyttle, Terence McKenna, Dan Merkur, Jean Millay, J.P. Morgan, Jonathan Ott, Dale Pendell, Will Penna, Mark Pesce, Thomas J. Riedlinger, René Rikkelman, Giorgio Samorini, Nick Sand, Alexander Shulgin, Daniel Siebert, Myron Stolaroff, Rick Strassman, R. Stuart, Sylvia Thyssen, D.M. Turner, Leander J. Valdés III, R. Gordon Wasson, and numerous anonymous and pseudonymous contributors.

ART

Ruary James Allan
In his art, Ruary James Allan approaches metaphysical realities through myth and visual analogy. The imagery has been influenced by Celtic, eastern, ancient, and modern traditions. Attempting to blend these traditions with his own idiosyncratic vision, he produces art that simultaneously speaks on many levels--personal, social, ecological and spiritual--aiming to make even the most difficult subject matter beautiful. He hopes that his art may serve as a portal, enabling people to deepen their appreciation of the world and themselves. His paintings have been shown at various galleries, juried art fairs, festivals, and events in northern California, Oregon, and Japan, and he has been published in Creation Spirituality Network magazine and Psychic Reader, on flyers for Burning Man parties and in other hip places.
