This is the third installment of the acclaimed anthology series. More sophisticated high strangeness from the borderlands of culture, as "Strange Attractor" continues to explore the outer edges of anthropology, psychology, history, literature, art, spirit and science. In 2006, we explore the world of the early Islamic alchemists; visit a Burmese transgender spirit possession festival; meet 19th century French proto-surrealists and occultists; demonstrate how Theosophy influenced 20th century art; take a scalpel to historical tales of birth outside the womb; make a pilgrimage to Orford Ness, and much more. Plus beautiful and strange art, photographs old and new, and unusual surprises galore. Intellectually rigorous, aesthetically baroque and entirely unique, the "Strange Attractor" books are increasingly celebrated, as setting new benchmarks in underground publishing. With "Journal Three", "Strange Attractor" continues its mission to "celebrate unpopular culture" with what promises to be its most exciting edition yet.
