"You interested in psychic books?" I asked.
"Depends on the quality of the information," he replied.
I've been sampling the wares myself. I just finished Far Journeys by Robert Monroe- and liked it so much I'm paying real money for its sequel. Monroe was- and I guess still is because what difference does dying make?- a virtuoso of the art/skill/leisure activity/scientific methodology that used to be called astral travel and is now called out-of-body experience. He reminds me of John Anthony West, the heretical Egyptologist. Its a distinct American type- tough, humorous, ornery- Mark Twain crossed with Indiana Jones. John Huston the film director was another. Intellectually formidable outlaws; I'm not sure the culture produces them any more.
