After graduating from UCL in 1992, Simon G. Powell suffered an extended bout of 'mushroom fever' brought on by excessive psilocybin use. After this 'mushroom fever' subsided, he was left with a case of chronic biophilia. This curious condition, which turned out to be permanent and quite stimulating, led him to write a number of unorthodox books - including The Psilocybin Solution (2011), Darwin's Unfinished Business (2012) and Magic Mushroom Explorer (2015 - a promo video is below). He also felt compelled to write and direct two radical film documentaries: Manna and Metanoia. Currently he is making a new documentary film about the medical psilocybin research being carried out by the Heffter Research Institute (see here for a recent article I wrote about them). He lives in London - according to Vice magazine his flat is 'cramped'...
