The author and publishers of this guide do not condone or condemn those who are seeking an alternative state of consciousness. However, we feel that this information should be provided freely for those individuals who feel a need to study the various aspects of entheogenic mind-altering fungi which occur in Australia and New Zealand. It is not the intention of the writer nor the publisher that this guide is to be used for the purpose of the illicit human consumption of said described fungi.
This book is the first complete guide to entheogenic mushrooms to be published on the internet. This Index has received 539800 hits.
