Robert Anton Wilson died today
at the age of 74. The acclaimed author and godfather of Discordianism is survived by mills of fans.
His Illuminatus! Trilogy
was a profound influence on me and it's what drew me to Discordianism in the first place. Without it, I'd have never met malual
, who brightened my Rochester experience so much, and if I had never met her, it's likely her husband faboo
wouldn't have either.
I gotta go read some more of his books sometime soon.
