In the dying days of the Soviet empire, a Russian scientist decides to save the natives of Kamchatka from alcohol-related extinction by replacing vodka with a psychedelic mushroom. This experiment was quickly terminated by the Party. In Project Nirvana, Pyotr Patrushev extrapolates these true events into a plot that is now more relevant than ever.

A kidnapped Indian guru becoming a chess wizard, sexy Russian spy Anna seducing American security expert Richard Snowden, state-controlled drugs enhancing productivity when used with meditation... this and much more provide a practical recipe for reaching world peace while simultaneously ending the futile war on drugs... a satire with cleverly concealed thought memes that will guide social and drug reform world-wide for years to come.


"A wildly imaginative book... amazing tales..."


- Robyn Williams (ABC Radio)


"Patrushev's novel brings together the visions of Orwell and Huxley."


- Michael McGirr (The Sydney Morning Herald)
