Here are some pull quotes from the first ever 1984 issue of High Frontiers — predecessor to MONDO 2000  — for you to chew over.

    I still have this ish! And the pink one that came out a few months later. Mine is disintegrating, but still readable. Haven’t looked at it in years, but now may be the time to check it out again.

    I felt hopeful in 1984, much like the optimism I recall in this first ish of HF. Doses flowed freely on the streets, and it seemed like info on psychedelics was beginning to get more credible and factual with pubs like HF and Stafford’s Psychedelics Encyclopedia, for instance. Then came 1986.

    Howdy! This post could not be written any better! Reading through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!

    He always kept preaching about this. I’ll send this information to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing!
