Im not looking for the normal novel, instead something mind altering. I work night shift and need something other than sleep (BOO HOO) to occupy my time. So give some crazed ass suggestions please and thank you!

Or read Hunter S. Thompsons (  :sad: ) Fear and Lothing in Las Vegas. I read it in one sitting and it was quite insane. I would never want to trip like that.

Any William S. Burroughs would certainly meet your criteria for mind-alteringness. I've found his work a little too "out-there." There is no author more people profess to enjoy but really don't.

The Doors of Perception - Aldous Huxley: This is a 30-page essay on the effects of mescaline. You can download it off the web (just search for it). The Doors took their name from this work.

Any Hunter S. Thompson will do.

Somebody mentioned Island by Huxley. That's one that's close to the top of my "to read" list.

Welcome evermore to gods and men is the self-helping man.  For him all doors are flung wide: him all tongues greet, all honors crown, all eyes follow with desire.  Our love goes out to him and embraces him, because he did not need it.

I was going to suggest Robert Anton Wilson, but someone else already mentioned it.

Alternatively Zen and the Brain by James H. Austin will take you a long time to get through...

Fear and loathing really isnt what im looking for, but a good suggestion! Im looking for a more thought provoking read. I have ordered some of the books that have been suggested though.

Isn't Stranger in a Strange land by Robert Heinlein?


--------------------
Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.
