True Mutations: Interviews on the Edge of Science, Technology, and Consciousness , published by Pollinator Press
True Mutations looks at the wild changes that may be coming to the human species during the 21st Century. In a series of interviews, author/host RU Sirius explores a series of (r)evolutions in disciplines ranging from the evolution of clean energy to the possibilities of endless neurological ecstasy; from open-source free access to nearly everything under the sun to self-directed biotechnological evolution; from psychedelic culture mash-ups to the possibilities of a technological singularity that alters not only humanity but the entire universe.
RU Sirius, aka Ken Goffman, is probably still best known as co-founder and former Editor-In-Chief of the first popular technoculture magazine, Mondo 2000, in the early 1990s. His books have included MONDO 2000: A User’s Guide to the New Edge (with Rudy Rucker), Design For Dying (with Timothy Leary), The Revolution: Quotations from Party Chairman RU Sirius and Counterculture Through the Ages: From Abraham to Acid House (with Dan Joy). He's written for Wired, Rolling Stone, Esquire, Time, and Salon.com.
He is currently the host of the “NeoFiles” and “The RU Sirius Show” podcasts on MondoGlobo Network and a regular contributor to 10ZenMonkeys.com.
