This website features more than 14,500 photographs (thumbnails included) pertaining to entheogenic fungi. 67 psilocybian species and 6 non-active species are described. More than 100 articles and books on 'magic mushrooms by John W. Allen, along with international scholarly co-authors are presented here including many rare and hard to find early published scholarly academic and ephemeral publications, all about the magic of the shrooms.

A news section featuring hundreds of mushroom grow-bust-possession news items from around the world, pictorial photo essays of mushroom and cultural forays into the jungles and villages of Thailand and Cambodia are presented as are some of my favorite photographs from around the world featuring non-shroom images, furry animals, a recording I made in 1964 with the Beatles is available here for a free download and other interesting adventures from my life.
