From the Publisher
If the modern world is crumbling, then magic is whats growing up between the cracks. In Generation Hex, editor Jason Louv assembles a collection of dispatches from the edgea generation of young adults who are inventing and imagining radically new directions for spirituality and human evolution.
Through critical essays and practical demonstrations of how a positive interaction with the magical and psychic undercurrents of human life can radically alter ones existence, the young magicians collected in Generation Hex provide a collective blueprint for escaping the suicidal rut of modern life.

My most sincere thanks to the authors for their candor and randy enthusiasm!
I recommend this to EVERYONE! Especially those that are scratching their heads wondering what is happening to the world and more importantly to their friends and family as we digress from a dogmatic and shallow unified spirituality into a new era of spiritual self-discovery. This book will help you connect. Bring your guts, integrity and be ready for sincere and severe assaults on what you thought magic was and what you think the 'right' path is!
I'd come back again, and become disgusted... again. Over and over, and I'm only in my 20s. I picked up this book, because if anyone was going to do it right, Disinfo would. They didn't let me down. No small press books written by snotty prats with bad grammar, no fluffy ish, just experience, and truth. I don't agree with every essay, and didn't *like* EVERY essay, but they all had truth to them in some way. You don't have to like or agree with everyone to take something away from this book. I've found myself within the occult *finally*. I knew it was there somewhere, but the avenues presented to me in the past only lead me to dead ends, presented me with uncertainty in myself and within the validity of the whole experience. This book presented me with everything I needed, tossed my uncertainty out the window and helped me grow in my practice.
From Christian Sedman, to Crucio to Louv (whom I've developed a ridiculous girly crush on) there is so much to think about and digest, it just leaves you completely satisfied, like after a really good Thanks giving dinner, all fat and happy.
But from my perspective, as a contributor to the project, it's not really a "how to" book. This is instead a snapshot, a cultural tapestry that spotlights what it is to come into awareness outside a commonly accepted domain. In other words, this is what happens when a generation goes "what the f***?" and isn't satisfied by any of the answers provided. So they plumb deeper, and deeper. Magick is simply a system of looking at and working with reality both open and skeptical enough to allow this process to take place.
I can't say what the end of this story is, as I said this is a snapshot and it's unclear at this point whether "we" are converging or travelling off in various interesting configurations.
However for anyone that is interested in picking up the pen, wand, or guitar to change their world (and through that, THE world), this book is a must read.
