The New Epilogue to Our Classic Reader - Navigating the Space Between Brilliance and Madness

You can order the new book here

So much has changed in the nine years since we originally published this book that we both wonder sometimes if our lives are a movie or a dream. The Icarus Project is no longer fueled by the obsessive energy of two people working at a frenzied pace and holding it all together with lithium and duct tape. These days the project is supported by a network of madfolks and allies all over the world.

 

Last Fall we celebrated our tenth anniversary with art shows, performance nights, and skillshares on both coasts. Our publications have been translated into Spanish, French, German, Italian, Hebrew, and Croatian. People are using Icarus materials in college classrooms and hatching plans for Madness Studies as an academic discipline. Our posters and info sheets are handed out as materials to youth advocates  and peer specialists around the country. There are local Icarus inspired groups in places as far flung as North Dakota and India.

Madness Radio is co-sponsored by Icarus and longtime Icarista Will Hall has been hosting and producing shows since 2005. This is Madness Radio's first fundraising effort ever and we can't continue with shows without funding for 2013. We're also doing a Madness Radio book of interviews to reach even more people.

I want to thank everyone who has supported Madness Radio over the years, the guests and listeners and the many Icarus members and co-conspirators who have been interviewed on the show. Now is the time -- please join the effort to keep Madness Radio's voices and visions on the air. Mad love and appreciation everyone -- Will Hall, Madness Radio host
