News from London

Daisy Eris Campbell, the daughter of Ken Campbell, is preparing a stage adaptation of Robert Anton Wilson's Cosmic Trigger.

That's the word from the Web site of the London Fortean Society, which has announced that at 8 p.m. Oct. 23, it will feature a talk on RAW from Campbell and from John Higgs. Ken Campbell, of course, is the late British writer and director known for mounting a stage production of Illuminatus! Miss Campbell's mother is Prunella Gee, the British actress who is now a counselor. The October event will be held at a place called The Horse Hospital ("Providing space for underground and avante garde media since 1993").

About the appearance by D.E. Campbell, the folks at the Fortean Society say this: "Conceived backstage at her father's production of Illuminatus, Daisy Eris Campbell is now adapting Wilson's Cosmic Trigger for stage. She'll discuss the extraordinary story behind Shea and Wilson's magnum opus."

Meanwhile, John Higgs has announced on Twitter that his new novel, The First Church on the Moon, will be released August 10. The paperback will cost money, but the ebook will be free, Higgs says.
