a Hitchhiker’s Tao is an exposition of mysticism and spirituality themed on my extensive experience thumbing around America - between 1968 and 1980 I did 60 to 70,000 miles. Around half of that was done without money. The Oregon commune I lived on for nearly five years provided a great springboard for hitching exploration as well as an education in cosmic togetherness.
Y3K is a look back from the year 2999 at Entropy Gaia, the world's coming ecological disaster. It's a novel of protest, a defense of ancient forests and an exploration of commune life. Y3K is a novel of ecotopia and a treatise on mysticism and the occult. It's also a story of unconventional love and romance and a road novel that nearly circles the world. Come along, it's a fun ride
