Adam Gorightly's Discordian history [UPDATED]

Adam Gorightly, author of a Kerry Thornley bio, has a new book in the works on the history of Discordianism. He has created a new website devoted to Discordianism to promote the book.

In fact, he has several new books in the works, including a "Starseed Signals by Robert Anton Wilson with foreword and afterword by Adam Gorightly." I don't know more about the new RAW book than what's in the preceding sentence, but as I get more news, I'll pass it on.

I don't know Mr. Gorightly really well, but judging from this blog, he likes bongo drums, old LP album covers for gospel music bands,  uncovered  human female breasts, UFOS and go go dancers. Well, who doesn't?

Update: Mr. Gorightly shared more information about Starseed Signals with me; it's an early work from the 1970s, a book project that was never published, based on RAW's association with Timothy Leary. I'm really looking forward to it.

See the article, "Starseed Rises, Like the Phoenix, From Its Ashes," which I uncovered for this blog.

Mr. Gorightly wants you to know that his other Discordian projects announced on the website contain RAW material, too.
