“Jasun Horsley is making a habit of writing books everyone should read.”
~Gregory Desilet, author of Our Faith in Evil

Available for Pre-Order:

 

“The Vice of Kings is a brave journey into a family’s heart of darkness by an intrepid prose artist.  It is not just the painful and bizarre family affairs he uncovers, but the sexual crimes that the British aristocracy normalized as their peculiar privilege going back generations. It also happens to be meticulously researched and beautifully written.”
~ James Howard Kunstler, author of The Long Emergency and the World Made By Hand novels

Prisoner of Infinity: UFOs, Social Engineering, and the Psychology of Fragmentation

“Easily the most important study extant of social/mythological engineering/UFOs/Strieber’s continuum. No stranger to trauma, driven by relentless–yet empathetic– intelligence, Horsley strips out the massive, annoying nonsense that’s tainted these subjects since the “heady” days of Adamski, Bowert’s Operation Mind Control, the late Jim Keith’s more lucid material and Cannon’s The Controllers. An incredible–literally mind-blowing–exploration.”
~ William Grabowski, contrib. ed. Library Journal; author of Black Light: Perspectives On Mysterious Phenomena

Dark Oasis: A Self-Made Messiah Unveiled

“Horsley’s painfully honest tale of devotion and deceit shows how cult logic can draw in pretty much anyone. It can happen to you.”
~Douglas Rushkoff, author of Present Shock and Program or Be Programmed

Seen & Not Seen: Confessions of a Movie Autist:

“Like a magnet, or black hole, your book has demonstrated the capacity to draw other texts helplessly into its space. As Borges said of Kafka, the best books create their own lineages and predecessors, out of formerly unrelated texts.”
~Jonathan Lethem (Afterword)

The Secret Life of Movies: Schizophrenic and Shamanic Journeys in American Cinema

“Walter Benjamin… observed of cinema that ‘It is through the camera that we first discover the optical unconscious, just as we discover the instinctual unconscious through psychoanalysis’ . . . . Jason Horsley’s intriguing account of modern American film suggests this possibility, and much more besides. . . . . By inhabiting a split consciousness and occupying time outside of linear chronology, particular movies and their directors offer a shamanic journey from estrangement and loss of identity to psychic integration. … [H]is opening pages on the ‘occult text’ in The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly are superb… This book would be a good supplementary text for film and cultural studies classes or courses in film history and film criticism.”
~Robert N. Matuozzi, Washington State University, in Projections Volume 6, Issue 2, Winter 2012

“Through a Fractured Glass, Darkly”

“the most devastating and articulate summary of Whitley Strieber and his works that I’ve ever read. Neither facile dismissal nor endorsement, [Aeolus Kephas’s] analysis is propelled by a sincere interest in Strieber’s writings that illuminates the often schizophrenic nature of his alleged experiences.”
~Mac Tonnies

“You’d have to be crazy to understand it,”
~James Moseley, co-founder of Saucer News

“Autism & the Other”

“A wonderful text that shows great insights into issues related to culture and autism. We need texts such as this which celebrate autistic differences as unique strengths and talents, to be fostered and developed, instead of considering them pathologies to be eliminated or cured.”
~Alexandra Bal, PhD, Assistant Professor at Ryerson University

 Matrix Warrior: Being the One

“I get almost sensory overload from [Matrix Warrior] and have to pause and digest. I am sure you have received a ton of enthusiastic endorsement. . . . There is such a wealth within it I will be slow digesting it.”
~Joseph Chilton Pearce, author of The Crack in the Cosmic EggMagical Child, and The Biology of Transcendence (in private correspondence with author)

“the best self-help book I’ve read in years.”
~Marie D. Jones, author of 2013 – End of Days or A New Beginning: Envisioning The World After the Events of 2012

“contains oodles more than most of the self-help manuals on the market…”
~Adam Roberts, author of Blue Yellow Tibia

Blood Poets: A Cinema of Savagery

“This hothead fantasist offers the excitement of a wild, paranoid style. . . . It’s always a surprise.”
~Pauline Kael
