More on the new KLF book
A little bit more information has come out about 2023, the new book by "The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu," e.g. guerrilla ontologists The KLF.
A page by the publisher, Faber, reveals that the book is scheduled for release on August 23 this year and is subtitled, "A Trilogy." There is a pyramid on the cover. Faber's page to promote the book says,
Well we're back again,
They never kicked us out,
twenty thousand years of
SHOUT SHOUT SHOUT
Down through the epochs and out across the continents, generation upon generation of the Justified Ancients of Mu Mu have told variants of the same story - an end of days story, a final chapter story. But one with hope, even if the hope at times seems forlorn.
The story contained in this trilogy is the latest telling. Here it is presented as a utopian costume drama, set in the near future, written in the recent past.
Read with care

All of this certainly seems suggestive of the Illuminatus! trilogy, although the references seem to be lost on every press report I've seen about the book, such as this one from Jezebel.
