Erowid Announcement #35
October 24, 2003
Greetings Friends,

The last three weeks we've been busy working on issue #5 of our print newsletter, Erowid Extracts. It's in the printer's hands now and will be mailed out to members in about two weeks. Those who become Erowid members before November 1st will get issue #4 in addition to this new issue. This announcement is full of articles from past issues of Erowid Extracts. Check them out to get a sense of what's included.

In other news, we recently started a Wish List at, for anyone who feels inspired to contribute a book to the Erowid Library. Our physical library is an integral part of the work done at Erowid. Books in our collection are used as reference materials and are reviewed and listed on the site to help others find them more easily. Our wishlist can be found by searching Amazon wishlists for "Erowid", or visiting:
We welcome submissions, suggestions, criticisms, or corrections at
