Available in early June, from Sasha Shulgin’s course at SFSU:
This is volume one of three, directly transcribed from recordings of Sasha’s class that he taught in 1987. The course is on what drugs are, how they work, how they are processed by the body, and how they affect our society, and features Sasha’s engaging lecture style peppered with illuminating anecdotes and amusing asides.
“Legendary chemist, nuanced psychonaut of molecular structure-activity relations, deep thinker on issues of societal policy, engaging storyteller, inspirational teacher, and all-around good human being — Sasha Shulgin takes us on an alchemical educational journey as if we were sitting there as students in the class from which this text arose.

Our company was founded in 1991 by renowned biochemist Alexander “Sasha” Shulgin and his wife Ann Shulgin to publish their now cult classic, PiHKAL: A Chemical Love Story. Their intention to voice and share material on the nature of drugs, without censorship, remains the guiding spirit of our enterprise.
Through our preservation of Sasha’s written legacy and upcoming new publications we cultivate a unique hub for scholarship and public discourse on this vital and provocative aspect of human activity and interest.
