This is to announce "The Alchemy Issue" of Pataphysica, journal
of a certain science. A symbolic science of imaginary
solutions, alchemy is a branch of pataphysics, the "science of
sciences" founded by Alfred Jarry (1873-1907). Jarry's own work

instances) his 1894 exhortation to "study conjunctions!"
("Visions Present and Future"); to his 1898 "neo-scientific"
novel Exploits and Opinions of Dr. Faustroll, pataphysician,
where the evicting locksmith, Mr. Lourdeau, resides at "205 rue
Nicolas Flamel" (Flamel was a legendary 14th century alchemist);
to his 1899 "Automovable Feast" in Père Ubu's Illustrated
