Millones de hispanohablantes consideran verídicos los libros de Carlos Castaneda, probablemente porque la mayoría de ellos no han leído esta traducción al español del libro del profesor Jay Fikes, Carlos Castaneda, oportunismo académico y los psiquedélicos años sesenta. El Dr. Fikes publicó este libro en Canadá en 1993, después de llevar a cabo años de investigación en México y en los Estados Unidos. Ahora dos españoles, Juan Samper y Lourdes Escario, han traducido el libro de Fikes sin retribución económica, convencidos de que será de provecho para todos. La afirmación central de Carlos Castaneda, haber aprendido brujería de un anciano indio yaqui llamado don Juan Matus, se contradice con las pruebas del profesor Jay Fikes. Su investigación revela que los escritos de Castaneda están basados en caricaturas de un huichol llamado Ramón Medina Silva y de otros indios mexicanos que conoció Castaneda. El libro de Fikes expone los elementos más sensacionalistas de la pseudoetnografía encantadora de Castaneda a la vez que examina quién y qué le ayudó a convertirse en un héroe antropológico y en uno de los padrinos del movimiento New Age. El libro de Fikes inspira respeto por los rituales huicholes de los primeros frutos y por las peregrinaciones del peyote, resume las ceremonias de la Native American Church y repasa los momentos culminantes de los años sesenta, la época turbulenta en la que Castaneda se convirtió en un autor de éxito. Fikes muestra cómo y por qué Aldous Huxley, el Dr. Timothy Leary, Gordon Wasson y varios antropólogos de Los Angeles contribuyeron a crear una audiencia ansiosa por creer que los cuentos chinos de Castaneda eran ciertos. Fikes explica cómo y por qué Castaneda y sus aliados antropólogos de la Universidad de California en Los Angeles hicieron de los huicholes un imán para buscadores de chamanes análogos al maestro de ficción de Castaneda, don Juan, poniendo así en peligro las ancestrales peregrinaciones del peyote de los huicholes. Algunos creyentes en las historias sensacionalistas de Castaneda contribuyeron al trágico fallo del Tribunal Supremo de los Estados Unidos de 1990, que denegaba la libertad religiosa a unos 300.000 miembros de la Native American Church que veneran el peyote. La extensa investigación de Fikes y su experiencia de primera mano con peyote entre los huicholes y en las ceremonias de la Native American Church le cualifican de modo excepcional para desacreditar las absurdas alegaciones de Castaneda sobre chamanes y peyote, entre ellas su afirmación de que el espíritu del peyote (“Mescalito”) decretó su aprendizaje con don Juan Matus. El autor del prefacio, Dr. Phil Weigand, es Profesor Investigador del Centro de Estudios Arqueológicos en el Colegio de Michoacán. Ha publicado numerosos libros y artículos académicos sobre los huicholes, cuya historia y cultura empezó a estudiar en 1965 en San Sebastián con su esposa, Acelia Garcia. Los traductores de este libro, Lourdes (Clara) Escario y Juan Samper, son españoles. Lourdes Escario es licenciada en Filología Inglesa y profesora de inglés en un instituto de enseñanza secundaria en Palencia. Juan Samper es veterinario y licenciado en Filosofía. Tanto Juan Samper como Jay Fikes han llevado a cabo peregrinaciones bajo la tutela del mismo chamán huichol Jesús González. Carlos Castaneda’s books are accepted as truthful by millions of Spanish speakers, probably because most of them have not read this Spanish translation of Professor Fikes’ book, Carlos Castaneda, Academic Opportunism and the Psychedelic Sixties. Dr. Fikes published this book in 1993 in Canada, after completing years of research in Mexico and the United States. Now two Spaniards, Juan Samper and Lourdes Escario, have translated Fikes’ book without payment, convinced that it is valuable for everybody. Carlos Castaneda’s central claim, to have learned sorcery from an elderly Yaqui Indian named don Juan Matus, is contradicted by Professor Jay Fikes’ evidence. Fikes’

Otra de vaqueros--the book is the negative space and a souvenir of an eponymous residency and exhibition project that took place in Mexico City in 2007. Featuring stories, statements, tales, questionnaires, jokes, instructions, letters and notes by the participating artists and guest projects, the book might even provide a few hints about the mechanisms and the relational and conceptual spaces that preempted the production of the exhibition's works, and the Otra de vaqueros project as a whole. Contributors Jennifer Allora & Guillermo Calzadilla, Artemio, Bernadette Corporation, Jay Chung & Q Takeki Maeda, Minerva Cuevas, Jeremy Deller, Claire Fontaine, Mario Garcia-Torres, Karl Holmqvist, Bruno Serralongue, Sean Snyder, Reena Spaulings, the Backroom, and Konst2

Originally drawn to Yaqui Indian spiritual leader don Juan Matus for his knowledge of psychotropic plants, bestselling author Carlos Castaneda immersed himself in the sorcerer’s magical world. Ten years after his first encounter with the shaman, Castaneda examines his field notes and comes to understand what don Juan knew all along—psychotropic plants are merely a means to understanding alternative realities that one cannot fully embrace on one’s own. Journey to Ixtlan introduces these clear new ideas—omitted from Castaneda’s classic volumes The Teachings of Don Juan and A Separate Reality—to the reader for the first time. Castaneda explores, as he comes to experience it himself, his own final voyage into the teachings of don Juan, and shares with us what it is like to truly "stop the world" and perceive reality on his own terms.
