Your next stop should be You Tube. You can watch some of his lectures there.

Next, head over to Amazon and type is name in the search.

Have fun. TM is quite a trip.

Re: The Terence McKenna Reading List
I wouldn't delve into Terrance McKenna without first having a good philosophical foundation. Start with the basics.

His stuff is pretty heavy in addition to being overtly pschedelically inspired. Not recommended for a novice.

This might help to get you started:

Why did no one answer the OP a question? He was not asking for McKenna links. He was asking for McKennas source material. Books that have influenced McKenna.

Re: The Terence McKenna Reading List
Op, there are only 2 books I recall McKenna mentioning in a lecture heard on youtube as must-reads, besides his own books which he included on that list.

The Psychology of the Transference - Carl Jung

The origin of consciousness in the breakdown of the Bicameral Mind - Julian Jayne

If anyone else could help, I too am interested in what other books were on his list of recommendations.
