Timothy Leary knew it way back when, and novelist Todd Brendan Fahey interviewed the good Doktor way back when and not a magazine on earth would pick up the gig.

Todd Brendan Fahey began his political involvement in 1985, as a sophomore at Arizona State University, when he founded "Students for the John Birch Society at ASU."The event gained him immediate national media attention--though often not favorably.
He went on to serve as an Intelligence asset while at University of London - Union College to the late Lt.
Throughout the years, Fahey has served as aide to U.S. Congressmen, American Governors and military Generals.
A rare-breed of "right-winger," Fahey is also unapologetically opposed to the "War On [some] Drugs."An avid experimenter of LSD, Fahey has written dozens of articles concerning the value of "the visionary experience" (as author Aldous Huxley termed it).This disparity has caused a rift between standard-brand Republicans and Fahey's Right/libertarian ideology.
Fahey is author of Wisdom's Maw (Far Gone Books, 1996), a controversial novel which "factionalizes" the CIA's MK-Ultra LSD/psychedelics experiments on U.S. military and domestic citizenry during the 1950s-early 1970s.
He is currently a Professor of English and "strategic writer" in South Korea.

Wisdom's Maw by Todd Brendan Fahey.">
Todd Brendan Fahey made the Digital Leap at the close of 1994.
"Sure," Fahey said. "Whatever."
As a Ph.D. Teaching Fellow in English at UL-L, Spring semester 1995, Fahey hijacked a Technical Writing course and began using his junior-year students as the guinea pigs of Web-page design, calling the class "Technical Writing Across the Internet. The offering raised little more than eyebrows and complaints from UL-L's English department; by Fall, the Internet had exploded across the pages of Time and Newsweek, spawned a dozen NY slicks, and Fahey's Web design course was no longer an anomaly.
Fahey's own Far Gone Books/Wisdom's Maw Web site would quickly gain Magellan's 4-star rating, and through long nights of shameless e-mail self-promotion, he began to receive friendly notes from Grateful Dead lyricist John Perry Barlow, Mondo 2000 co-founder R.U. Sirius and other digital hardcores.
The synthesis of psychedelic drugs and the Internet has not been widely written of by mainstream media, but Fahey and others believe the relationship to run deep.
John Perry Barlow remarked to Fahey, in an as-yet unpublished interview: "I'll go so far as to say, if the government succeeds in its War On (some) Drugs--if everyone who used marjiuana and LSD were to really be put in jails--America would not have an operational computer left."
This remark mirrors Timothy Leary's assertion, to Fahey in 1992, that "Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak were barefoot, long-haired acid freaks" and that Bill Gates was known to use LSD while at Harvard.
Today, Todd Brendan Fahey is at work on A String of Saturdays: The New Southern Romance, a digital novel which he estimates will top out at 800pp, and which will feature innovations on font, sound, texture, streaming video, remote-location Web cam placement and possibly even scent. He envisions a book which will carry one into a Lewis Carroll-like world, a phantastic fantasy, not unlike the LSD experience itself.
Fahey's creative magazine work includes: "Fear & Loathing in Amsterdam: The Smoke Abortion," for Carbon 14 (having been "killed" by NY cigar magazine Smoke), Ken Kesey: Comes Speak the Cuckoo and Timothy Leary: Twentieth Century Neuronaut, for Far Gone; The Original Captain Trips, for High Times; and Hunter S. Thompson: The Champion of Fun, for Fling.
Todd Brendan Fahey is a Ph.D. candidate in English at University of Louisiana-Lafayette, holds the Master's in Professional Writing from University of Southern California, received his Bachelor of Science, cum laude, in Justice Studies from Arizona State University and studied in 1985 at The University of London-Union College. He began graduate coursework in The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State, before his acceptance into the prestigious Professional Writing Program at USC.
Fahey has served as aide to Central Intelligence Agency agent Theodore L. "Ted" Humes, Division of Slavic Languages, and to the late-Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) chief Lt.

The controversial prose of author Todd Brendan Fahey has garnered attention of VICE magazine, High Times, Mondo 2000, TokeSignals and other hot publications of today and yesterday.
Toward this end, author Todd Brendan Fahey performed a successful Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request of the Central Intelligence Agency of its dark, Cold War-era project, as well as gaining access to the group surrounding "Captain" Alfred M. Hubbard--a US citizen and OSS operative who relocated to British Columbia, Canada and began dispensing LSD to psychiatrists and psychologists in both B.C. and Hollywood.
Fahey's research on Al Hubbard and his cadre was published as an investigative article for High Times magazine in 1991.
And then, as Mondo 2000 co-founder and editor-in-chief R. U. Sirius (Ken Goffman) puts it, in a recent interview of Todd Brendan Fahey for VICE magazine: "...suddenly it seems as if a switch were flipped downward.
Fahey was championed by Hunter S. Thompson's agent throughout the 90s, but he was unable to catch a @*&#ing break.
R. U. Sirius compares Todd Brendan Fahey to Terry Southern, who pioneered a vein of ink-black satire in the United States in the 1950s and became known in the UK and France, where cultural critique seems to be more of a favored pastime.
Far Gone Books is publisher of the legendary Wisdom's Maw, a tour-de-force that takes the reader helter-skelter into the psychedelic world of the Sixties, where Intelligence agents attempt to create a human superman via use of LSD; most-recently, Far Gone Books has released Dogshit Park & other atrocities--a collection of ink-black satirical short stories and interviews by Todd Brendan Fahey.

Todd Brendan Fahey and His Acid-Laden Writing Style
In 1996, Todd Brendan Fahey came close with the "acid novel" Wisdom's Maw, which he wrote while under the influence of 500-microgram doses of LSD-25. The novelist would drop as soon as his wife went to work and be back inside corporeality by the time she got home. I spent 36 years as an acid head, and it never occurred to me-that is, until I read Fahey's latest book, Dogshit Park-that the eight-hour work day is just the right amount of time to get up and come down.
I first heard of Todd when we both found ourselves in the November 1991 issue of High Times-me as a study of my odd self, Fahey for a truly jaw-dropping investigation of Captain Al Hubbard, the so-called "Johnny Appleseed of LSD" and confirmed OSS agent (and suspected CIA agent).
Fahey was championed by Hunter S. Thompson's agent throughout the 90s, but he was unable to catch a fucking break. He remains unjustly obscure, which may be a function of his whacked-out literary style.
I thought it high time to catch up with him.

An interview with Todd Fahey about his gonzo conspiracy theory novel Wisdom's Maw
SPIKE note: This interview first appeared in the print zine Carbon 14. Todd Fahey is still without a UK publisher for Wisdom's Maw, despite rave reviews from every sector of the literary press. Go figure, as they would say in America.
About five months ago, we received a copy of Todd Fahey's book Wisdom's Maw. I'd seen ads for it somewhere. Or maybe saw his Web page.
Todd Brendan Fahey:Wisdom's Maw was conceived at the turn of 1988-89, in a period of increasingly heavy LSD usage for me. I was living in Santa Barbara, CA and had been accepted into the prestigious & ultra-expensive Professional Writing Program at USC for the Master's degree - this after having basically been run out of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University for writing "too much like Hunter Thompson.
You drop the name Todd Brendan Fahey around certain circles in Arizona today and you better watch your back.
