"Aquarius Revisited" Reissue Celebrates the Sixties 

The 40th anniversary of the Sixties' "Summer of Love" has spawned television shows, books, films ... and this paperback reissue of Aquarius Revisited, written by Peter Whitmer with Flyer editor Bruce VanWyngarden, waaay back in 1987.

Aquarius Revisited features interviews with (and life histories of) Sixties icons William Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Timothy Leary, Hunter Thompson, Ken Kesey, Tom Robbins, and Norman Mailer, as well as writing about James Dean, the Rajneeshi commune, and more groovy hippie-era stuff.

The new version features 36 pages of updated information and new photos. Available through Amazon.com.

Get high and buy several hundred copies for your friends. Peace out.
