'Terence and Dennis McKenna take a crew of Merry Pranksters to the Colombian 
Amazon in order to seek out a possibly mythic hallucinogen used by shamans of 
the Witoto tribe. In a run-down remote mission town called La Chorrera they 
find instead a plethora of mushrooms growing from cow-flops, said mushrooms 
positively drenched in psylocybe. After eating these, smoking hash, and downing 
baanisterius caapi, Dennis McKenna turns into the Victor Frankenstein of 
psychonauts, and attempts to immanetize the eschaton by using vocal tonality 
modulation techniques to merge shroom DNA permanently into his own. After this 
experiment the McKenna brothers go a bit off the rails. Nora and James Joyce 
visit in the guise of chickens. UFOs form from clouds, rivers stand frozen, a 
voice in Terrence's head teaches him the workings of time. Dennis attempts to 
manifest a blue protoplasmic goo he thinks might be the lapis philosophorum.  
 
In other words, things go a bit haywire.
 
The McKennas are fascinating cats because they are obviously hyper-educated 
geniuses, but are also burnt-to-a-crisp wastrels spawned in the '60s. If 
Terrence is telling the truth and he actually read Jung's Psychology and 
Alchemy at age 14, well, then his intellectual curiosity must be off the 
charts, including those charts he describes in this book, the ones which list 
all possible future and past events as a predictable waveform of novelty 
injections into the universe.
 
Many of the experiences Terrence describes I myself wrestled during a brief and 
lush psylocybe cyclotron ride in my early twenties. I never, however, quite 
felt manifest the alien intelligence he encounters, which claims galactical 
omnipresence. Vast neural networks of underground fungal strands never spoke 
to me personally--and if they exist as McKenna describes them they deemed me 
worthy only of scintillating light-shows and dripping wood grain patterns, not 
of messianic missions to usher in the final stage of human evolution. For some 
reason the idea of an omnipotent fungal entity reminded me of Karl Rove.
 
Part sci-fi novel, part hippie memoir, part manifesto for the New Shamanism, 
True Hallucinations is a lot of mind-bending fun.'
