Remembering Mac...

...& missing him. But, what's four years between friends?

Words seem to fail me on this anniversary of Mac's passing, but Aaron John Gulyas posted a tribute to Mac y'all might want to read: Mac Tonnies: 20 August 1975 – 18 October 2009.

(Thanks for the post, AJG, and the PMB mention!)


"In The Chaos Conundrum, historian Aaron John Gulyas examines how the paranormal has intersected and influenced our culture in myriad ways, from the conspiracy beliefs of William Cooper and Exopolitics to the challenge that the stories of Gray Barker presented to our concept of self and time."

(Update 12/4/13 - Regarding The Chaos Conundrum, the "forthcoming" book Aaron Gulyas mentions on the post linked to above: it can now be found on this (Kimball Media) Redstar Books page. While there, you'll find Posthuman Blues, Volume II (2005-2006)... And, I must say, what a great idea it is to use one of Mac's drawings for the book jacket's cover art!

    1. Thanks for dropping by, K.! It's good to see one of Mac's old friends commenting here.

      Time is distance. I'm guessing that's why the photo I posted here resonated so much for me. It almost seems as if he's peering at us from the other side. I only realized the other day that he must've been shooting into a mirror.

      Re: your recent posts on the Starry Road blog... I think Postreason is itching to return! ;-)

  2. Thanks for the link and the plug! I enjoy your site!

    1. Thanks, AJ... wasn't really a plug though, just a heads-up. I appreciated your intro to the first Posthuman Blues book - and your acknowledgment of PHB's historical significance.

    2. Well, okay, maybe it was a plug... ;-)
