Terence McKenna Book on Kickstarter

Dennis McKenna, the youngest brother of psychedelic author Terence McKenna, has already raised more than $42,000 in pledges to write a memoir about a life “intertwined” with his famous sibling. At Kickstarter you can support his project, The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss!

Here’s more about the project: “McKenna is a legend in the psychedelic community:  He is remembered as a radical philosopher, futurist, raconteur, and cultural commentator.  He was and is one of the most articulate spokesmen for the post-psychedelic zeitgeist. He is one of the prime originators of the 2012 mythos with all its attendent apocalyptarian anxiety. I am the younger brother of Terence McKenna. I want to write a memoir telling the real story of our intertwined life together over the last 60 years, and of the ideas, adventures, and explorations (both inner and outer) that we shared.”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
