We're about halfway through Coincidance, and I've been thinking about what the next target for a group read should be. How about Illuminatus! ?
That would take up a large part of 2014, but it seems to me we ought to consider taking it on. The books were published about 40 years ago, and people who could contribute memories (such as "Neil in Chicago," a couple of days ago on this blog) are not getting any younger. (That's pretty obvious, considering that both of the authors are dead.) If we are going to jar some valuable memories loose, it seems to me we should do it sooner rather than later.
Then, too, as John Merritt has suggested, there is much to be done in tracing all of the references in the book.
What do you think?
