I want this page to be a collection of all known drug books, novels, poems and other writings.
Because I want the content to be verified and original I am kindly asking you for help. No only that you will contribute to this fine blog, but also you will make me happy. Simply leave a comment telling us what did you read that involves drugs. And please be selective.
I want to feature works that depict the act of consuming, creating, selling, etc. illegal substances, not works that simply refer to it. To be more precise: writings in which the characters and course of events are directly determined by drugs.
Trippy and fantastic written and illustrated works are fine too, but those would rather make the front page.
I will start first. The last book I read regarding this subject was Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh. It is one of the most referential drug books written to date. Surely it focuses on the sub-culture and under-society of young Heroin users from Scotland. It still can be transposed to a lot of other nations and cultures. This book was also made into a movie with the same name directed by Danny Boyle. You can access it’s site via the poster on the blog’s main page. A mighty fine book and movie to conclude!
I came across this some days ago and it sounds like a good lecture.
The book is called “Ketamine: Dreams and Realities” and it is written by Karl Jansen, a M.D. Ph.D. and the “world’s leading expert on ketamine”. Read more about the book and the author here.
