You Might Be a Psychedelic ChaoSatanist If…

is an illustrated book of political, adult humor that addresses the ethical shortcomings of organized religion through a critical, counterculture lens. It is comprised of 41 pithy remarks, which characterize this seemingly radical position in such a way that open-minded readers may find themselves sympathetic – especially in these times of great moral crisis and postmodern confusion.

The persistent hypocrisy of religion has served only to despoil their chosen icons. To say one prefers “Satan” to the outdated offerings of Christianity is to engage in a form of protest behavior. The icons of light have been emptied, subverted, sullied, leaving us only humor and the icons of darkness with which to mount a defense. Tapping into the zeitgeist of Generation X counterculture and its progeny, the writing references psychedelic drugs, Chaos Magick, Kink/Cosplay, atheists, art, science and the failings of organized religion.

The droll one-liners and charming illustrations offer a sympathetic framing of this unusual metaphysical subculture. You Might Be a Psychedelic ChaoSatanist If… is both broad jest and a coherent personal manifesto.

When Ray first entered the publishing industry, authors relied on “vanity presses” to produce their work – many of whom would charge $15,000 or more and leave the author’s garage filled with hundreds of books. Ray, along with coworker Alan Harris, joined forces with Miles Nelson to create Dog Ear Publishing to provide the author community a self-publisher with a heart. The group’s application of new technologies and publishing on demand reduced the cost of publishing a book to a fraction of what it had been for previous generations; authors now have the ability to publish a book in as little as six weeks and print as few as a single copy.
