by E.J. Gold (Illustrated by the author)
Foreword by Iven Lourie
"The unknown," to paraphrase E. J. Gold, "is unknown because
it does not lend itself to being known"; what must not be spoken
is in fact that which cannot be articulated. Wedged among life's
supreme unknowns is the field of sexual alchemy, and
Alchemical Sex, Mr. Gold's elucidation of those portions of
this subject that can actually be confined to print, is a laudably
serious attempt to make some portion of the unknown, known.
From his first curious predictions to the arcana of "evocation" vs.
"invocation," the book puffs a welcome breath of fresh air into a
world that is currently wholly dominated by "a species which
features as its main attribute a radically disconnected multiple
personality with no control over which persona is active at any
given moment." Lucid, witty, detailed, and incisive, Alchemical
Sex is required reading for anyone with any aspiration to
cultivate sexual energy with true creativity.

"E.J. Gold seems to me either the greatest comic writer or the
greatest philosopher of our time or maybe both."
