In Gesture Modulation of Templates, Jerry describes how he used the angelic tablets produced by the 16th Century mystics John Dee and Edward Kelley.

An unusual text is the transcript of Jerry's how-to videotape entitled How to Kill Yourself Using the Inhalation of Carbon Monoxide Gas, intended for use by sane adults with terminal or degenerative illnesses.
