    I remember one time Su Xi and I tripped acid and did the tiger-crane two man form. We wound up two miles east in the forest, and when I woke up, Su Xi had hamstrung a golden leopard with his bare teeth.

    Shaolin trips are a trip, man.

    Greetings,

    The original cover of Gene's book had a giant mushroom on the cover. Those limited editions were presented to his inner circle of friends, along with a few buttons to lick.

    mickey

    ps: Good Luck with the book, Gene!! Congratulations.

    Thanks guys

    I actually do discuss the psychedelic side of Shaolin at length in my book. There's more on that than in any previous book on Shaolin.

    And that makes it an important historical document. And it is truly a Magnum Opus....670 pages! Gene, you wrote the War and Peace of the Shaolin Temple.

    All kidding aside, respect and congrats for getting that book together. I look forward to reading it. The modern history of Chinese martial arts is actually an area where little serious work has been done. And so I very much look forward to seeing your book.

    take care,
    Brian

    The War and Peace of the Shaolin Temple

    Shoot, now I want to re-title my book, Brian.

    Honestly, my intention was never to make it so long. My original intention was to compile my past research for my own benefit, so I wouldn't have to leaf through back issues all the time. But that idea got away from me. There's actually a large portion that was in the original concept that I decided not to pursue, as I could already see it was getting longer than I had intended.

    Thanks again for your support, everyone!

    ok... you hooked me - i am dying to read this now.

    that's because most of us refused to dispense the knowledge thru-out the ages.

    I smell a volume two...

    Now Gene, I have seen you ban others for doing the same thing. There is only one recourse for your actions; you must now ban yourself.

    Congrats on the new book, I will be ordering mine as soon as I finish on this site.

    My research on Shaolin is ongoing

    I already have enough for another book, but I need to sell the first one first.

    Beyond the aforementioned omitted portion (which would have added another 18 chapters to the book) none of the material in the 2010 May/June Shaolin Special (which is in the last 'official' week on the newsstand) made it into Shaolin Trips. In upcoming issue, I make a cursory mention of New Shaolin Temple in my publisher's note, but that's a story in development. I'm working on two more Shaolin pieces now for the next issue, one feature article and one short news piece (which may well explode into an ezine article).

    But catch up with me first - buy Shaolin Trips book number one.

    P.S. sha0lin1, you can promote here if it supports the forum and as this is a TC Media International publication it definitely helps pay the bills.
