    Subject: Review of new 60's novel?
    Advance notice of a new book
    by James Fadiman
    A new novel from someone who lived that reality.
    Jim's connection to the 60's ranges from co-founding a commune in New
    Mexico to being there, on the grass, at the Great Human Be-in to being a
    legal psychedelic researcher. This book rekindles memories for those who
    remember, and were "there" in body and/or Spirit, while it sparks
    curiosity and new interest for those who were not.
    We recently visited your website,
    http://lists.village.virginia.edu/sixties/, and want to let you know
    about a Jim Fadiman's novel set in Haight-Ashbury in the 60's. We're
    checking to see if you'd be interested in reading an advance copy  of
    the book before it is released to bookstores (January 2001) and then
    posting a review of it on your site. Also, we will soon launch a website
    for Jim's book, and thought you might be interested in reciprocal
    linking (he plans on having a page of 60's links).
    "THE OTHER SIDE of HAIGHT," by James Fadiman, tells the story of a group
    of young people sharing a house in Haight-Ashbury in the 60's, both
    embodying and creating the spirit of their place and time. As the story
    unfolds, they are compelled to strike out at the forces  which are
    corrupting their values and a way of life they hold dear.
