Product Details


“Brilliant! Absorbing! Wildly useful! Rob Brezsny gets my nomination for best prophet in a starring role. He’s a script doctor for the soul.”—Marisa Tomei, Academy Award-winning actress

“I am deeply inspired by the illuminated words of Rob Brezsny. He is a word wizard for the soul.”—SARK, author/artist Succulent Wild Woman

“A book so weird it just might drive you stark raving sane.”—Robert Anton Wilson

“I’ve seen the future of American literature and its name is Rob Brezsny.”—novelist Tom Robbins
“Brezsny holds his own place next to cultural shamans like Robert Anton Wilson, Timothy Leary, William Burroughs, and Ken Kesey.”—
“Like a mutant love-child of Jack Kerouac and Anais Nin, Rob Brezsny writes with devilish humor, spiritual audacity, and erotic intensity. The Televisionary Oracle is a kick-ass gnostic tale. Prepare to be astonished.”—Jay Kinney, author of Hidden Wisdom: A Guide to the Western Inner Traditions
The Televisionary Oracle’s heroine, Rapunzel, is one of recent literature’s sexiest female protagonists.”—Weekly Alibi, Albuquerque
“Millions of people already live their lives in accordance with Rob Brezsny’s ‘Free Will Astrology’ prophecies. But the time has come for a deeper dose of Brezsny’s brain. Enter this temple if you dare!”—David Ulansey, author of The Origins of the Mithraic Mysteries
“Rob Brezsny is contemporary literature’s Sage Against the Machine.”—Good Times, Santa Cruz, CA
“The prose is poetic, circular, dancing, combining the narrative voices of Anais Nin, Tom Robbins, and David Ignatow.”—Rain Taxi
“What Rob Brezsny does with words is grammarye, the Old English term for magic. With his strange brew of macho feminism and poetic rationalism, Brezsny weaves a yarn crazy enough to be true and real enough to subvert the literalist virus of cynicism now immobilizing the collective mindscape.”—Antero Alli, author of Astrologik, Angel Tech, and The Vertical Oracle
“Smart and insane, The Televisionary Oracle takes you on a wild inner journey that makes you ask the question, have I done any good in the world? It also makes you wonder, how does a man know so much about the psyche of a woman? A marvelous book. A must read.”—Grainne Rhuad
