The great American author, futurist, and prankster, Robert Anton Wilson, died peacefully in his sleep at age 74, just one week shy of his 75th birthday.
AUTHOR ROBERT ANTON WILSON, PASSES AWAY AT 74
Influential author Robert Anton Wilson died of complications from childhood Polio, on January 11, 2007 at 4:50am in Santa Cruz, California USA. The author of more than thirty-five books, Wilson became highly influencial to those of us who dance to the beat of a different drummer. To all who knew him, and to those who have studied under him at Maybe Logic Academy, RAW (as he was known), was a literary rockstar.
He will be greatly missed by his world-wide fanbase, and for those of us who are always looking for some inspiring reading, I might suggest that these people go to their favorite bookstore and order some of his works.
I would recommend the following list -- Wilson's Trilogy of Trilogies:
- The Illuminatus! Trilogy (1975)
- Schrödinger's Cat trilogy (1980-1981)
- The Historical Illuminatus Chronicles (1982-1991)
These trilogies named above are some intelligent reading for those who look for something different in the books they read. With Robert Anton Wilson, every book represents a different facet of his intellect and genial wit.
Bob, you WILL be missed!
