About the author (1982)

Since the issuing of "Solar Journal: Oecological Sections" by Black Sparrow Press in 1970, Richard Grossinger has published some twenty-five books, most of them with his own press, North Atlantic Books/Frog, Ltd., but also titles with Harper, Doubleday, Sierra Club Books, J.P. Tarcher, among others. These have ranged from extremely long explorations of science, culture, and spirituality ("The Night Sky," "Planet Medicine," "Embryogenesis") to memoirs and nonfiction novels ("New Moon," "Out of Babylon") to experimental prose ("Book of the Earth and Sky," "Spaces Wild and Tame") and science fiction ("Mars: A Science Fiction Vision"). Grossinger received a PhD in anthropology from the University of Michigan in 1975 and lives with his wife Lindy Hough in Berkeley, California.
