From the late '70s onward, I've avidly read Erik Davis's perceptive music criticism, which drew upon his vast knowledge of esoteric belief systems in addition to his lusty appetite for psychedelic sounds of many varieties. In 2005, he transmuted his interest in music and the occult into a 33 1/3 book on Led Zeppelin IV, and before that published 1998's Techgnosis: Myth, Magic and Mysticism in the Age of Information. So, it's no surprise to see Davis touring behind a book titled High Weirdness, which examines how literary subversives Philip K. Dick, Terence McKenna, and Robert Anton Wilson's psychedelically spiritual writings from the '70s have altered America's cultural landscape.
