Why wasn't Bride finished?

So, have you all read the excerpt from Robert Anton Wilson's unfinished sequel to ILLUMINATUS!, Bride of Illuminatus? It was published in "Trajectories 14," and you can get the PDF to read it yourself here. (Look on page 16).

I have to admit, I wasn't blown away when I read it. I expected it to be a little better. The jokes about feminists, e.g. "You will just have to make a few mental adjustments — as the sultan said the feminist" got a little old for me, and in general it did not seem very inspired.

Could it be that Wilson himself didn't think Bride was very inspired? Could that be why he didn't finish it? Or did everyone else love the excerpt more than I did?

Bob Shea and Bob Wilson planned to write Bride of Illuminatus! together. When Bob Shea died, I think Bob Wilson didn't want to do it by himself.
