Robert Anton Wilson Is Dead

I’ve been trying to write some little memorial for him, something to explain what his writing meant to me, the huge, huge effect it’s had on me, and I keep coming up short, deleting paragraphs of content because there’s no way I can make you understand what it felt like when I first encountered his work.

I’ll leave it at this: more than any other writer I’ve ever read, I would not be the man I am today if I hadn’t read his books.

I’ll leave you with this quote, in the hope that you can see some of the value in him that I do:

“Please pardon my levity, I don’t see how to take death seriously. It seems absurd.” – Robert Anton Wilson, 5 days before his death.
