Journalism by Eric Francis Coppolino

Dear Friend and Reader:

Welcome! This page is the beginning of a comprehensive archive of my journalism, which long predates my being an astrologer. These days, I write mostly about astrology, though since astrology is about the world, I branch into many other topics.

Me with tee shirt from my favorite guitar store.

There’s lots of stuff on this page though most of it opens offsite. The links take you to little collections here and there.

A selection of my environmental journalism is posted to the Dioxin Dorms website.

You will find a collection of my satires at Save April Fools!

For those interested in articles written around the theories of Marshall McLuhan, Eris and the internet, here is a collection. If you’re interested in why things seem so weird, crazy and over the top right now, I trust you will find this set of about 10 articles to be enlightening. You will also track my process of figuring out where we are when we are in digital space.

You may have heard a rumor that I write about sex. Where did you hear it? Anyway, it’s true. It’s a theme integrated into Planet Waves. We’ve also selected a few of my best pieces and a reading list and put them onto a site called Yogi Slut. If you have an inquiry about Book of Blue, please write to me.

A number of my favorite Planet Waves articles are listed below — and three or four really, really good PDFs at the bottom that you won’t want to miss — including the first ever monograph on Eris.

We’ve just added categories that will self-update every time we add a new article. For a reader of this particular page, you will find some interesting stuff on the Articles Category.

There’s also a Newsletter Category that I haven’t quite figured out. It has…writing on it. There you go.

If you’re looking for something you read a long time ago (this website goes back to 1998), write to me at efc@ericfrancis.com, copying office@planetwaves.net for good measure. If I’m free I’ll also answer the phone. You can call (845) 338-4846. If you don’t get me, try again. I’m always up to work on some new, weird or interesting project — and I take requests, and also follow up on story leads.

For those who remember the New Age movement, this first PDF will be exciting. This is a compilation of my writing dating back to 1986 — long before Planet Waves — which traces my spiritual history starting with the Harmonic Convergence celebration.

I’ve just retrieved it, made some formatting corrections, and have posted it for anyone to read. It can be downloaded and printed.

One last — I just found this marvelous old “greatest hits” resource with the best of Planet Waves from 1998-2004. It’s really cool. Here is our monthly magazine from 2001-2003. And now for the rest…

with love,

Light Bridge: The 25-Year Span
from the 1987 Harmonic Convergence to 2012 (PDF). This is a compilation that covers, in detail, the planetary aspects through the Millennial era, from the 1990s through “the end of the Mayan calendar.” We produced this in 2011 and I have not looked at it much since…man it is a trip.
