FUNGI MAGAZINE review
HALLUCINOGENIC AND POISONOUS MUSHROOM FIELD GUIDE
Gary P. Menser
Menser’s book is the first that could be considered reasonably reliable. It is well organized and includes a key to both hallucinogenic and poisonous species, good descriptions, and generally accurate line drawings of the species. Although some of the information is now dated, and there are occasional mistakes, Menser clearly had a great deal more general mycological knowledge and experience than the authors of most of the books of this generation. Still a useful volume, especially when used in conjunction with more comprehensive recent field guides.
