       Welcome to the home of The Embryo Man

                      The world's first psychedelic picture-book novel
                       with surrealistic imagery and
whimsical prose
                      designed to enlighten all who happen to pass by!

            Within this book you will find hundreds of song links as an
           added bonus. They have been sprinkled like seeds throughout
          the entire novel to further enhance a rather small body of work.

       Just leave your magic carpet by the ticket booth and proceed through!

Here admission is always free, and the estate of life
is an ever changing world that has slowly begun to die.

                    Please note that if the text and spacing is not 100% accurate,
                         you will need to hold the
"CTRL"  and then the "+" key.
                            This will allow the web page to be viewed properly.
                                 Same goes for the
"CTRL" and "(minus)" key,
                                          if the wording becomes too large!

       With over 1000 psychedelic paintings to aid you along, the story,
       written in fact, becomes more than just your average tale of woe.


But don't fret, because at the bottom of each and every chapter
         can be found, the artist and title of each and every painting!
Within every picture, I have added links that will take
             you to the prospective website of the artist in question.

Do note that I have since completed the bottom of Chapters
            1 - 41, and am working earnestly to give credence unto
               those who have long inspired me through their art.

                        Greetings, my name is Charles Pendelton

Many thanks to Marty Langdon for all his help in the past concerning the fate of this website.
As of Sept 2015, Marty left for Venezula. We do not know if he will be returning to the states.

Today, I will be working with Marty over a secure line to perfect "The Blurb."

As for my book, however, it can best be defined as a psychedelic novel.
It can also be labeled an autobiography of one day. If you like books
that drip in undertones of the surreal, then begin reading Chapter 28.

If you want to dive right in, read chapter 25.
which is written almost entirely in verse!

Chapters 28 - 31 are interconnected.

They pertain to the summer of 1981 when I and a friend injested three hits of
double barrel purple
mescaline. *(LSD)* And a heck of a lot of Mary Jane!

Chapter 32 is an unconventional love story.
So unconventional, if it were to be made into a film, it would be banned and
anyone having any involvment would be immediately imprisoned indefinately.

In truth, I drank from that cup, and I never looked back.
Therefore, I never knew what had begun to take shape in the
dark region known as despair. An ill wind had begun brewing
and heaven help the soul left stranded by the river's edge. . .
It is so cold and lonely there, my eyes begin to water at the mere
thought of it. There in that wretched place of all forlornness,
the mighty angels who circle above will not circle above it.

                                Chapter 32, Pg 187

Most citizens of the day have no idea what lies within the pages of this book.
   It is the heart of delirium. . . It is madness redefined.

Aside from trying to comprehend the internal workings of a delicate mind,
The Embryo Man is an exquisitely written love story of epic proportion.

After you read a chapter, I would like to hear your review of it,
if you could find the time. You may address your comments
me at Simply state what chapter
you have reviewed and I will see that it gets p
osted to this website.

Whether it be questions that can go into the FAQ's box, or general
ideas on whether you liked it or disliked it. As long as you leave
your first and last name (or initial), it would be much appreciated.

(If you choose to remain anonymous, that's fine too)

People who read The Embryo Man will never forget,
how wonderful life could have been.


Before I can allow this to continue any further, I would like to clarify

an issue. Just for the record, I would like to state that never at any
time have I ever been or have I ever gone raving. I fell ill for a
is all, and let that be the end of it. Also, I will not answer any
questions pertaining to this matter, so please do not ask. Neither
will I
answer any questions relating to, or involving Chapter 32.

With that out of the way, you may continue
in whatever direction it is you choose to go.

P.S. - I never thanked you guys for that video! It was very creative.
