Welcome to The Oak Tree Review version 2.0.

The intent of this website is to investigate the many branches of psychedelic culture throughout history. Special interest is taken in its manifestations in art and literature.


The Oak Tree Review went live in May 2009 as a web 1.0 style online publication. Seeing that it was a one-person endeavour, only a small number of pieces were published during the years that followed, and eventually the website fell into a slumber in 2013. But despite the inactivity, the site has stayed online since its inception, functioning as a sort of obscure archive.

In early 2017, I decided to relaunch the site with a new look and a slightly updated concept. My initiative came from an urge to create a website that places emphasis on cultural and artistic aspects of the psychedelic experience.

Stylistically, inspiration comes from the “New Journalism” of the 1960s, as well as essayistic and scholarly writings. The aim is, ultimately, to present well-written nonfiction for both curious and well-informed readers.
