Article on David Lindsay in latest Psychedelic Press journal
17 February 2017
The Psychedelic Press Volume XX

Volume XX of the Psychedelic Press journal contains an article on David Lindsay. Alan Piper explores how altered states are invoked by the eating and drinking of various substances in A Voyage to Arcturus, and argues that The Violet Apple demonstrates evidence of Lindsay's own experience with some form of psychoactive drug, likely Anhalonium, which was doing the rounds of writers and artists in the 1920s.

Volume XX of the Psychedelic Press Journal is available from the Psychedelic Press UK site.
