one time mention

Border Crossings by Donald Lee Williams. Available from Inner City Books, Box 1271, Station Q,Toronto, Canada M4T 2P4. This is not really for those who accept Carlos at face value, it attempts to analyze Nagualism from a Jungian point of view. That analysis might have made sense before The Fire from Within, but not anymore. A reversal is now in order. A reader recommended the book because he found some interesting references to old missionary manuscripts. He said that the author had been approached by Fox Broadcasting for a possible MOVIE about Carlos or Nagualism. 
Don Juan, Mescalito, and Modern Magic by Nevil Drury. Pub 1978 by Routledge & Kegon. A favorable analysis of Castaneda and shamanism. 
Carlos Castaneda, Academic Opportunism and the Psychedelic Sixties, by Jay Courtney Fikes, Ph. D. You can guess what this is from the title. Can order from Millenia press (see Audio Casettes) for $22.95+2.50 shipping.


Toltec Artists, 183 N. Martel, #220, Hollywood, CA 90036. This is a place where you can write to Castaneda and the rest of his clan [agent's office]. Remember, don't pester them!

How many books has Carlos sold?

Millenia press sent the info on the new tape of Carlos from the sixties. A brochure states that an abridged version of the tape was published in Issue 40 of Magical Blend magazine. They are also selling the book Carlos Castaneda, Academic Opportunism and the Psychedlic Sixties, by Jay Courtney Fikes, Ph.D. This book discusses Carlos' association with Maria Sabina and Ramon Medina Silva.

Millenia Press also plans to sell full-color buttons and coasters that emphasize the durg aspect of Carlos' books in a somewhat tasteless manner.

Millenia Press' brochure for the tape states that Carlos has sold over eight million books, and the brochure was written before The Art of Dreaming.
