Last Saturday, June 18, friends and fans of Shulgin research turned up in surprising numbers to the UC Berkeley campus bookstore for a signing of The Shulgin Index, Vol. I.
University of California neurobiologist David Presti introduced the authors, Sasha Shulgin, Tania Manning, and Paul Daley. After a reading from the book and a brief Q&A session, the authors greeted guests and personalized copies of their latest work.
The audience was peppered with notable researchers amongst the supporters. Chilean psychologist Claudio Naranjo, a pioneer in the use of MDMA and other psychedelics in therapeutic work (and longtime friend of the Shulgins), was introduced. He was received with warm applause.
Transform Press reported a record number of one-day sales at the event. Proceeds from books purchased will directly support further Shulgin research and publications.
