Dance at Dionysian festivals, meet alchemists in the laboratories of Switzerland, trippers in the corporate highrises of Brisvegas, and journey to the edge of the universe within our anthology's pages...

Human Ecology book
Issue #5 - The Human Ecology

$10.00 AUD

The Human Animal is out of control. It spreads across the earth like a virus, taking what it wants and always needing more. It builds machines to do its work and cities to congregate its masses away from the natural world it exploits. Oblivious to the fact it lives in a natural ecosystem, the Human Animal replaces energetics with economics, the real with the rationalised in a virtual web of globalisation. Yet, moving through its monoculture crowds, pockets of diversity and multiculturalism still thrive. The undergrowth is fertile with the coloured plumes of resistance, with strange and wonderful new forms that have mutated to survive a world out of balance. From office drones in their concrete archipelagos to dumpster divers in the backstreets of the Empire, the Human Ecology pulses with life. Feral communities celebrate on the edge of bush dancefloors. Urban pagans connect with nature under the eyes of satellite cameras. The children of the System are remembering the Sacred. The walls are coming tumbling down as the Human Animal starts to recognise itself and its place in the web of life... SOLD OUT: new print run coming soon.

Terra Poetica book

Issue #2 - Terra Poetica

$10.00 AUD

In the early 21st Century the War on Terror was a billion dollar Spectacle conceived by the military-entertainment complex, which served to distract humanity from the more widespread and dangerous War on Terra. In the human zoo, we stand somewhere between monoculture and wilderness, shaping our mental ecologies from the debris of empire + revolution. Resisting the fictions broadcast by crude television satellites and saturated by tabloid media. On the streets, poetic terrorists paint the rumour of some new indigenous struggle. Earth magicians retrofit the urban ecology. New paradigms mingle with archaic lores in the interzones of the information war. We are all natives remembering the language of Terra Poetica.

As planetary monoculture is enforced from above, thousands of counter-cultures are also sprouting from below, in organic networks that sustain and build a sense of community and unity in diversity.

rebirth banner


'REBIRTH' by Rak Razam (40pgs colour cover with photos and illustrations) $7.00 AUD



In 1943, Dr. Albert Hoffmann, a chemist based in Switzerland accidentally discovered LSD-25, the most powerful synthesised hallucinogenic known to man at the time. This little molecule went on to become famous and then infamous as it swept through the intelligentsia, artists, writers and cultural elite across the world and was seen as an essential 'ingredient' in the consciousness uprisings of the 1960's and 70's. Over 60 years later Albert Hoffmann celebrated his 100th birthday in Basel, Switzerland by holding a symposium titled 'LSD: Problem Child or Wonder Drug' to discuss the effects and possible future of his discovery. "REBIRTH: The Psychedelic Movement Comes of Age" is a fully illustrated booklet reprinting the gonzo journal of Dr. Rak Razam, co-editor of Undergrowth as he explores the explosive history and contemporary state of psychedelic culture.

Psyence Fiction book

'Psyence Fiction' by Rak Razam

(144pgs with photos and illustrations) $10.00 AUD

The future has arrived, but there's something distinctly wrong with it. Robots that were meant to abolish human labour are creating mass unemployment because political systems aren't evolving as fast as our technology. Virtual gaming economies are outstripping the GDP of some small nations, telecommunications breakthroughs have brought us porn on our video phones, and Flash-Mobs roam the urban jungles, manifesting the sublime and shaking consumers from their retail addictions.

Psyence Fiction is a collection of fourteen short stories by Rak Razam that capture the spirit of the decade and the psychedelic, hi-tech future we live in. Illustrated by some of Australia's best underground artists and photographers, the book is a glimpse at the brave nu world around us and the bold characters that struggle to survive it.
