Early life and career
Gold is the son of Horace Gold, founding editor of Galaxy Science Fiction
magazine. He collaborated on several novels with his father during the 1960s, and
they worked on television scripts during this same period. He grew up in New
York City and has stated he is friends with many of the writers from science
ction's golden age. He has appeared on panels with Isaac Asimov, Harlan Ellison,
and Alfred Bester at science ction conventions.
As a child he created and presented his artwork at the Children's Art Carnival at
the Museum of Modern Art (194449). He has numbered among his friends many
of the artists of the Woodstock Art Association where he spent his summers. In
the summer of 1953 he attended Camp Woodlands in Phoenecia, New York. In
1956 he moved to Hollywood, where his mother worked as a story editor for the
Ellery Queen and Alfred Hitchcock television shows. He attended Los Angeles
City College, Otis Art Institute, and showed at Robert Comara and Joan Ankrum
Galleries with friend/mentors Fritz Schwaderer and Peter Jan Hirschfeld.
Happenings
In the 1960s Gold worked as a jazz musician, composer, and photographer for
Tiger Beat magazine. His photos of Harry Nilsson were used by RCA for album
covers. He edited Mod Teen Magazine in the 1960s. He also worked as a
continuity writer for the Bob Crane radio show on KNX.
Gold staged the "Saints' March" Art Happening where 40 saints were dropped
from the ocial Vatican calendar of saints. The event generated news items in
Time magazine and Newsweek leading to several television interviews with Joe
Pyne and Richard Dawson.
By the early 1970s Gold emerged as a sculptor and painter associated with the
California Nine group.
[3]
Spiritual teaching
Gold has for many years acted as an independent spiritual teacher whose work
and style bear a strong anity with the teachings of G.I. Gurdjie and the Fourth
Way school of thought. Gold's particular style, as evinced in his published writings
such as The American Book of the Dead also demonstrate a strong inuence of
Tibetan tantric teachings such as the concept of bardo or "in-between" states.
Like Gurdjie, the fundamental emphasis of Gold's teaching is on the concept of
spiritual "Work" in daily life and a constant eort to increase and maintain
heightened awareness in all activities. The state of an individual "in the Work" is
thus contrasted to what is taken to be the state of the "ordinary" unawakened

individual, who is presumed to go through life in a condition of quasi-automatism
or mere social conditioning ("asleep," in the metaphorical terminology of this
tradition.)
[4]
Hoax
In 1978, frustrated with the failure of the Gurdjie Foundation to make public the
nal Third Series, Life Is Real Only Then, When "I AM" (New York: Elselvier-
Dutton Publishing Co, 1981), Gold published Secret Talks With G. (Nevada, CA:
Gateway Books, 1978) as a well-crafted hoax. Although it worked, the heirs of
Ashiata Shiemash did not appreciate it and it caused a furor that still follows
him.
[5]
Current works
Today Gold is one of the older online gamers, who has participated in the
production of Quake 2, Dragon's Lair 3D: Return to the Lair, Necronomicon, and
other online rst-person shooters. He has worked with Quake's Capture The Flag
and with Team Fortress, both online team games used as teaching tools.
[6]
Gold also hosts workshops in onstage comedy and theater. He is responsible for
the creation of the You Can Paint art instruction series which is now used at a few
universities and art associations. He has also personally conducted public art
classes into the 21st century.
[7]
Gold has created a line of hand-crafted ber art beads, and his painted
celebrity-gear clothing line has been shown at various performance venues. His
comedic/tragic play Creation Story Verbatim has been performed at several
colleges.
