Here's a bit of equal time, I guess. Andrew Crawshaw wrote me (HomingBohm in the comments on this blog) to call my attention to a critique of Robert Anton Wilson written by someone named Charles Carreon. Andrew comments, "it struck me as quite an ironic critique of one of RAW's pieces. Enjoy reading it; it's funny - sometimes intentionally, sometimes not so."
Well, I did try to read it, but I couldn't get though it. Carreon says that Wilson's works regularly disappoint because of his "their lack of engaging characters and threadbare plots," using a link supplied by the copyright thieves at his host site to indicate that he's referring to "ILLUMINATUS!" That's fine; no one writer or particular literary work is for everyone. Mr. Carreon's post apparently is not for me.
This is obviously the work of a government disinformation agent.
Re-reading that sentence of mine, i think i misused the word ironic, anyway.. When I first read that Article of his I was really unsure as to his intent, and he even goes as far seeing some kind of animosity in RAWS writing, which I have never picked up on, and which I doubt is actually there.
Thanks for Linking to my blog anyway, much appreciated.
I remember reading an interview with Mr.Wilson where he touches on his disapproval of petty critics who attack just to attack, thats what this gobbledygook reminded me of. Hail eris!
I don't know, I thought this bit was pretty spot-on:
"SQUEEZE: The reader is a little stupid."
