Radical Mycology (zine)

by Peter McCoy Author

There's a fungus among-us...in the form of Radical Mycology zine! This zine is a mushroom primer, focused mostly on the Pacific Northwest, and contains a wild mushroom identification guide. This is a good time to point out that you should be very careful with wild edibles always! And you should not eat anything you can't positively ID!! Moving on, this zine is a hefty one. Besides profiles on 11 different mushrooms, it contains info on medicinals, cultivation, making mushroom dyes and paper, bioremediation using mushrooms, and a little history on psilocybin-containing mushrooms. There are even mushroom jokes. This zine is really well put together.

Comments & Reviews


Radical Mycology is one of the best zines of all time. Even if you don't like eating mushrooms, you have to admire their alien beauty. Get it!
