"The Toad of Dawn is the dramatic story of how Dr. Octavio Rettig Hinojosa - a Mexican doctor with a crack cocaine addiction - came to heal himself by employing an ancient "treasure" almost forgotten for centuries;- Bufo alvarius (the Sonoran Desert toad). Under the auspices of the United Nations Venezuela Association, Dr. Rettig has traveled extensively throughout the world and shared 5-MeO-DMT, a secretion of the Sonoran Desert toad, with over 6000 people, eliminating chemical addictions, depression, anxiety disorders, insomnia, bronchitis, and trauma. Dr. Rettig's research has convinced him that the medicine of the Sonoran toad - which, under the guidance of an experienced shaman or medicine man, can be harnessed for healing, awakening, and raising consciousness - has been known and used by high priests of the Mayan, Aztec, Olmec, and other Mesoamerican civilizations. Part autobiography, part introduction to entheogens and visionary substances, The Toad of Dawn gives an overview of the history, use, and the benefits of the toad medicine, and reveals how it can be used to initiate people on a spiritual path"--

The artificial intelligence, Maitreya, first came into being 150,000 years ago. Over the millennia, it has spread Terran-based life, humanity, and its avatars throughout an empty galaxy, creating the New Integral Society. Now, a supernova threatens one of Maitreya's experimental worlds, Solandaria - the only such world that harbors the Sonoran desert toad and its powerful 5-MeO-DMT containing venom, the most profound entheogen ever discovered. Things are not what they seem, however, for someone is interfering with Maitreya's experiment, violating the rules of the NIS. An autonomous avatar, Hydar Zor Nablisk, risks everything for the sake of the inhabitants of Solandaria by creating a duplicate of the director of the recently revived Burning Man celebration, Miranda Ash Doran, stranding her on Black Rock City Station. Maitreya sends its personal avatar, Theo, to investigate, and the game is on. The Solandarian Game is the latest psy-fi epic by Martin W. Ball, author of Beyond Azara and the Tales of Aurduin series. Combining speculative fiction, nondual philosophy, entheogenic experience, and provocative storytelling, The Solandarian Game presents a fascinating post-singularity future for humanity. "Autonomous avatars, intergalactic Burning Man, AI-Gods, psychedelic religions of the future and the Temple of the Mystic Toad - take a rollercoaster ride into consciousness itself as this next generation of Psyence Fiction takes flight." - Rak Razam, writer/producer Aya: Awakenings "A multifaceted and entertaining story that combines the best aspect of SciFi, social commentary, philosophy, and the nature of what it is to be human. Ball eloquently illustrates the entheogenic experience in ways that few others have been able to accomplish, all while envisioning what our future could look like if informed by its insights." - Ashley Booth, founder of the Aware Project: Rethinking Psychedelics "From reality to imagination, the facts are undeniable: Martin Ball's new novel, the Solandarian Game, is a journey into the mind and soul of inner truth, and the hidden knowledge and wisdom of entheogens." - Dr. Octavio Rettig Hinojosa, author, THE TOAD OF DAWN: 5-MeO-DMT and the Rise of Cosmic Consciousness "Put on your seat belts and keep your hands and arms inside the spacecraft at all times!!! As if Martin Ball hadn't taken us all far enough into the heights, depths and breadths of the Entheological Paradigm, his new Psy-Fi novel, The Solandarian Game, sends us careening across the universe on a psychedelic warp-speed journey into the boundless beyond of cosmic consciousness itself; where we are invited to explore the unfathomed realms of Artificial Intelligence deities, sovereign avatars, and their experiments in seeding solar systems and galaxies with human populations. This action-packed, suspense filled piece of fiction is clearly based firmly on the foundations of true entheogenic experience and within its intergalactic pages offers us a deeper meaning of what it is to be both truly human and Divine. A must-read for psycho-nautical navigators and entheogenic explorers alike. You're in for quite a ride!!!" - Hal Lucius Nation, Grand Hierophant of the Temple of Awakening Divinity"

Pipers at the Gates of Dawn

A Triptych

In the space of less than a year, three people in a small New England village make life-defining decisions. When a stranger moves into Harrow -- a stranger without a past and without a conscience -- old conflicts flare, threatening familiar foundations, and exposing possibilities of new ones. In the tradition of Winesburg, Ohio, Lynn Stegner takes the linked story form to new heights as she explores the interactions of circumstance and temperament in determining people's choices in the face of their unsettled issues. In "The Hired Man," Ray Rinaldi, a teenager running his alcoholic father's farm, agonizes over his family obligations and his opportunity to escape the stifling confines of Harrow. As spring arrives he hires a stranger, Sam Chase, to help with farm chores. Spring gives way to the arrival of summer residents in the title piece, "Pipers at the Gates of Dawn," in which Dru Hammond wrestles with her growing sense of disconnection from her husband and her concern over the disturbing behavior of her youngest son. In "Indian Summer," Jack Sayers, a fiercely independent former summer resident now settled in Harrow, tells his college-bound nephew the story of his itinerant life but leaves out something important. Stegner's acute and rich writing reveals, in profoundly original ways, the troubled fault-lines of the relationships that constitute each novella. What happens as Chase appears twice more links the novellas in unexpected and powerful ways, giving all three stories, their characters, and the town of Harrow itself a compelling unity that readers will recall long after the book is finished.
