BACK COVER #
Haight Ashbury Flashbacks is a personal account of early experiences with telepathy and psychedelics during the exhuberant San Francisco "Summer of Love" period. Told in brief, compelling episodes this book captures the Haight and the psychedelic phenomenon as no other work has. It explains the root and flowering of the Sixties culture and probes the transformational power -- and dangers -- of certain drugs.

BLURBS #
"Devilishly funny and accurate."
-- New Age Journal

"And then along comes this smiling madman Gaskin, this ex-Marine, ex-English professor, semi-retired wizard, and unregenerate holy man, this grinning shaggy spectre at the feast, this wild-eyed eye witness to unspeakable events and forgotten abominations, to tell them about some really wild things."
-- Spider Robinson
