Archiving of The Realist is complete

Ethan Persoff has announced that the effort to compile a digital archive of Paul Krassner's "The Realist" (1958 to 2000) is now complete.

This is an important announcement for Robert Anton Wilson fans because RAW frequently published here.

Jesse Walker of Reason magazine posts about the completion of the archive and recommends Wilson's (anonymous at the time) article about working as an editor for a "schlock factory," while Joel Schlosberg also posts about the project and suggests reading Krassner and Wilson's interview with Albert Ellis. Bandito notes at alt.fan.wilson, "Ethan Persoff put a hell of an effort into this over the last 3-4 years. He deserves a hell of a round of applause."
