The Jamais Vu Papers was first published by Harmony Books/Crown in 1991. Although soon out of print, JVP maintained a following over the years, and by 2010 we were getting complaints from readers who couldn’t find copies. Our new edition won recognition for visionary fiction from the International Book Awards and Eric Hoffer awards, and was also shortlisted for Hoffer’s Montaigne Medal.
The fictional cast of Jamais Vu includes a bored entity called Llixgrijb, the celebrated neuroscientist, Imogene Savonarola, a secret society known as The Ancient Order of the Brothers and Sisters of Thaumaturgy, a cut-rate Venice Beach shaman, a demented deconstructionist scholar, and the elderly ladies of The Elmblight, Ohio, Book Club and Sewing Circle, who in the course of reading The Jamais Vu Papers manage to become a part of the story, threatening to disrupt the fabric of reality. Real-world personalities such as cognitive philosopher Daniel C. Dennett, author Tom Robbins, and physicist Fred Alan Wolf get involved in the story. A lucid-waking adventure, this is our most-often-quoted book.

We launched our first collaborative project in 1987, when we were both on the staff of Marilyn Ferguson’s newsletter Brain/Mind Bulletin. We proposed a book based on the Bulletin, organized, edited, updated, and commented on published research, and also collected and created related exercises and sidebars. We even did the page layout for PragMagic.
Marilyn Ferguson’s Book of PragMagic (Pocket Books, 1990) was also published in Spanish, Portuguese, German, and Japanese editions.
