An excellent resource

The fervency of Robert Anton Wilson's fans reminds me of the old joke about the first album put out by the Velvet Underground rock band. Supposedly, it only sold a few hundred copies, but everyone who bought it went out and started their own band.

Wilson seems to have a similar effect upon people. People collect his books. They launch blogs devoted solely to his writings. And they create Web sites. I have a found quite a few places on the Internet devoted to Wilson.

A particularly good one is the Robert Anton Wilson Fans site, obviously a labor of love, that has a huge cache of interviews, letters that he wrote over the years, a bibliography, video and other goodies.

The official Robert Anton Wilson Web site is here.
