PREFACE
This is a redoing of Psionics 101, which lasted one edition and then was reissuedas Psychic Power by Llewellyn. What most folks who read my stuff forget is thatthe material in the original book is now almost 20 years old and so a whole bunchof it became obsolete with time.In 1981, Fate Magazine published an article by Joseph Goodavage entitled “TheConspiracy Against Psionics” which implied that the “powers that be” had workedto suppress the study of this stuff and when I read that article the proverbial lightbulb went off and I started to work in earnest on a project that had been sort of sitting in my office, a book on basic radionics and psionics, something I had beenworking with for several years.It took a few more years to get the book done because no sooner would I write achapter then I would come with something new and the chapter had to be thrownout, which was a real pain considering I was writing it on a manual typewriter (noword processors in them days! Even if you had one, the printers that wereavailable weren’t very good and publishers would not accept manuscripts doneon them). Finally, in 1984, I sat down and wrote and finished the manuscript inwhat was pretty much its final form in early 1985.At that time I expected Parker Publishing to be the target for selling the book so ithad lots of cutesy little stuff in it that Parker and its readers seemed to like butthen I got surprised. Llewellyn had decided to come out with its Psi-Tech seriesand in their advertising mentioned radionics. I figured if they had material comingout similar to mine I had better cover my ass so they could not accuse me of violating copyrights and so I sent a querly letter off, not expecting anything tocome of it.I was wrong again! A couple of months later I got a letter asking for themanuscript, so I wrapped it in swaddling clothes, put it in a nice, reed basket andleft it to the river of the postal service. And then waited, and waited and waited!Finally, in March of 1986 I wrote Llewellyn in some exasperation that if I did nothear from them by April 14 I would have to seek another publisher, after all,almost a year is a long time to wait for a publisher to make up its mind! On themorning of April 13 I got a phone call saying they wanted the book and a contractwould be on its way! I was about to enter the ranks of the immortals!Psionics 101 hit the streets in January of 1987, almost 7 years after I typed thefirst pages. So you see what I mean about time lag!But time has not been kind to the book. Many of the techniques and ideas of thatfirst edition are hopelessly dated and frankly, it no longer reflects my view of theworld very much. I am no longer a young man and with the darkening of my eyethere has been a correspondent darkening of my vision. The cheerful prankster 
 
with just a touch of amorality has been replaced by an international terrorist (atleast according to some folks) and I’m certain that those who were shocked bymy little drill joke now look upon my work with maximal disfavor. Once jokinglycalled Darth Vader by my friends, I have become the Emperor, an old, little manwho longs for his comfy chair and the pleasures of the Dark Side of the Force. Inmany ways doing this has been a bittersweet experience for me because it hasforced me to remember a happier time and a world that might have been.So this volume is going to be a bit shorter than the first edition, because I haveremoved a lot of the cutesy stuff that the publishing world of that timeexpected(oh, I left a few things in because they are still funny) and distilledcertain techniques down and simplified them because I’ve learned how simplethey really are. Not only that, but this book is no longer the only game in town asfar as teaching tech is concerned so there is no longer the need for the extremedetails of the first edition.But here it is and I hope you will enjoy it.
