'Paranoia' discovers RAW

Paranoia magazine, which publishes pieces such as "Why the Soviets Sponsored a Doomed Expedition to a Hollow Earth Kingdom" and "The Clintons, Scientology, and Drug-Smuggling," runs a new writeup of Robert Anton Wilson's Everything Is Under Control: Conspiracies, Cults and Cover-ups. Oddly, the piece doesn't really make clear that this isn't a new book.

Tom, I think it would be interesting if you managed to get an interview with co-author Miriam Joan Hill about that book.

I second fuzzbuddy's idea: Miriam "Mimi" Hill would make a good interview for this site.

Arlen was dying while RAW and Hill were assembling EIUC, and while I think it's a wonderful book, I can't help but think it was somehow stunted by RAW's lifelong love being very sick while he wrote it.

In the past 20 years, the market has flooded with "Conspiracy Encyclopedias," and I was have long planned to write about all of them, compare/contrast, etc. So far, RAW's EIUC is the only one that seems to hit on a tone that I consider appropriate to the subject.
