Feejee Press Announces Happy Trails to High Weirdness Released!

For Immediate Release

“HAPPY TRAILS TO HIGH WEIRDNESS:
A CONSPIRACY THEORIST’S TOUR GUIDE”

RELEASED IN PAPERBACK &
ON AMAZON KINDLE

“No matter where you go, there THEY are.”
Author Is Ultimate Tour Guide to the People, Places, & Parapolitics
Throughout the Weirdscape of California and the Great Southwest

Buy on AmazonATLANTA – Apr. 11, 2012 – FEEJEE PRESS (feejeepress.com) announced today the release of “Happy Trails to High Weirdness: A Conspiracy Theorist’s Tour Guide,” a precise roadmap to the People, Places, & Parapolitics that make up the scenery of bizarre destinations in & around California and the ever-odd Great Southwest weirdscape, by author and “crackpot historian” ADAM GORIGHTLY in traditional paperback and as an ebook for Amazon Kindle and Kindle app users.

Gorightly takes readers along for a wild and hilarious ride to out-and-out strange locations to meet up with some of the most interesting folks and figures involved in Conspiracy, UFOlogy, Occultism, Discordian Hijinks, Death Cults, and more. Gorightly’s travels reveal a land of strange, beguiling and sometimes humorous wonders. From surfing with occult secret societies in Santa Cruz on through to the dry depths of the Manson Family and other cults of Death Valley to crashing with aliens and their fans in Roswell, NM, Gorightly has an uncanny knack for locating the weird, the wanton and the wacky.

“Happy Trails to High Weirdness: A Conspiracy Theorist’s Tour Guide” is a must for readers who need to mix a little levity with their paranoia. Gorightly’s infectious humor takes the edge off the more distressingly dark aspects of occult and conspiracy history and lore while affording readers a better understanding of the curious subject matters that makeup fringe and high weirdness culture. You can’t go wrongly with Gorightly.

The book’s introduction is by Andy Colvin, a West Coast writer, artist, “synchroconspiracy” researcher, who is best known for his “Mothman’s Photographer” video/book series and also includes a bonus chapter from legendary Steamshovel Press publisher Kenn Thomas.

The Feejee Press paperback edition can be purchased online for US $19.95 at CreateSpace.com (https://www.createspace.com/3835210) or Amazon.com (http://amzn.to/IdbCos) where a preview of the book is also available. The Kindle edition can be purchased online for US $9.99 at Amazon’s Kindle Store (http://amzn.to/An00xC).

ABOUT ADAM GORIGHTLY
A certified “crackpot historian” and 23rd degree Discordian, Adam Gorightly has been chronicling fringe and conspiracy culture in an illuminating manner for over two decades. An active contributor to the ‘zine revolution of the late ’80s and early ’90s, Gorightly’s byline was a familiar sight in many cutting-edge magazines of the period where he sharpened his literary teeth. His articles have appeared in numerous publications such as “The Excluded Middle,” “UFO Magazine,” “Paranoia,” “Steamshovel Press,” and “FourTwoFour,” the largest soccer magazine in Great Britain. Gorightly’s explorations into these arcane waters eventually led to his first book, published in October 2001, “The Shadow Over Santa Susana: Black Magic, Mind Control and the Manson Family Mythos.” Other books by Gorightly include “The Prankster and the Conspiracy: The Story of Kerry Thornley and How He Met Oswald and Inspired the Counterculture,” “James Shelby Downard’s Mystical War,” and “The Beast of Adam Gorightly: Collected Rantings 1992-2004.” Previously, Feejee Press published his “A Who’s Who of the Manson Family.”

Look, Ma! A Press Release

For Immediate Release

“A WHO’S WHO OF THE MANSON FAMILY”
RELEASED IN PAPERBACK & FOR AMAZON KINDLE

“Who’s on First? Who’s on Third? Who’s on Acid?”
Authors Sort Out Confusion of Charles Manson Family Members

Buy 'A Who's Who of the Manson Family' Now!ATLANTA – Apr. 25, 2011 – FEEJEE PRESS (feejeepress.com) announced today the release of “A Who’s Who of the Manson Family,” a Charles Manson Family members guidebook, by authors ADAM GORIGHTLY and SHAMUS McFARLAND in traditional paperback and ebook for Amazon Kindle and Kindle app users—as well as a Companion Soundtrack to the book by film composer MICHAEL MONTES.

Gorightly and McFarland take on the daunting task of clarifying the multitude of seemingly endless nicknames, aliases and real names that cloud a reader’s understanding of the various books chronicling the Manson Family members and their bizarre activities, including murder. The terrifying Manson saga is complicated enough for readers (and Manson researchers) to comprehend without every character using six different pseudonyms at any given time. “A Who’s Who of the Manson Family” cuts through the drug-sex-and-psycho maze to compile the definitive facebook of Manson Family characters and provide an easy-to-use guide to clarify their real identities.

“Crackpot historian” Gorightly worked with co-author McFarland to create “A Who’s Who of the Manson Family” as a companion piece to Gorightly’s groundbreaking book “The Shadow Over Santa Susana: Black Magic, Mind Control & the Manson Family Mythos.”

“My original intention was to include the ‘Who’s Who’ as an appendix to the revised 2009 edition of ‘Shadow Over Santa Susana’,” Gorightly said. “But for some reason, the publishers of that edition decided not to include it. Fortunately, Feejee Press stepped forward with interest in releasing ‘A Who’s Who of the Manson Family’ as a separate book—in both paperback and ebook editions. So we had the chance to do some Manson Family current events updating. Dark, terrifying, disturbing, and yet handy!”

In addition to the paperback and ebook, Feejee Press brought in film composer Michael Montes to create a soundtrack for the book: “A Who’s Who of the Manson Family: A Companion Soundtrack to the Book,” available as an MP3 download. Seven of Montes’ hauntingly surreal tracks were carefully hand-picked as an atmospheric accompaniment, adding another dimension to Gorightly and McFarland’s Manson Family members guidebook.

The paperback edition can be purchased online for US $16.95 at CreateSpace (https://www.createspace.com/3558154) or Amazon.com (http://amzn.to/hVD8wU) where a preview of the book is also available. The Kindle edition can be purchased online for US $6.95 at Amazon’s Kindle Store (http://amzn.to/e53a3O).

Information on listening to samples, purchase and download of the US $3.99 MP3 Companion Soundtrack can be found on Feejee Press’ website (http://feejeepress.com/whoswhomansonsoundtrack).
