A RAW autograph

Here's a sweet picture: Leila Raven over at Temple Illuminatus holds up her autographed copy of ILLUMINATUS! The photo caption for the posting says, "From when I first met Bob, many years ago now & he signed my very well worn copy of the Illuminatus Trilogy. RIP RAW." (via @Robert_A_Wilson on Twitter.)

Despite my long history of going to libertarian gatherings and science fiction conventions, I never met Wilson. I did meet Robert Shea once, at a worldcon in Boston.

The one autographed Wilson book I own is Wilhelm Reich in Hell. In a nice coincidence, he signed it for me on my 23rd birthday.

He was happy to sign my CT1 and Illuminatus!, and I think he would've signed every book I would've brought, but I didn't want to "bother" him with too much of that.

I kept my canceled check from Trajectories because it had RAW's signature.
