I just found out one of my favorite authors of all time Robert Anton Wilson passed away today.
Robert Anton Wilson Defies Medical Experts and leaves his body @4:50 AM on binary date 01/11.
All Hail Eris!
On behalf of his children and those who cared for him, deepest love and gratitude for the tremendous support and lovingness bestowed upon us.
(that’s it from Bob’s bedside at his fnord by the sea)
RAW Memorial February 07
date to be announced
Wilson has been in poor health for years, and I’m really surprised he made it as far as he did.
If you have never read the Illuminatus! Trilogy, then put down the four colored pages and pick up this book (don’t forget to pay by cash unless you want to be tracked). It totally blew my mind the first time I read it, and it continues to wig me out each time I pick it up. If you want to expand your mind even further, read his other Illuminati related books (Masks of the Illuminati is another fave) or check out his mind altering titles.
Coincidentally I was just thinking of picking up the 800 page book and reading it again for a 10th time.
I know, it’s not comic related, but it’s my site, so there.
