Let's talk about online reading groups
We haven't done an online reading group for awhile. I have in mind two that could be done this year.
Email to the Universe, which has just been republished in the definite Hilaritas Press edition, is one of my favorite Robert Anton Wilson books, so I'd welcome a discussion. Maybe in May or June?
Eric Wagner also has expressed interest in an online discussion for Pale Fire, my favorite Vladimir Nabokov novels. The use of footnotes in the book influenced RAW's use of footnotes in The Widow's Son. Maybe start that discussion a few weeks after the Email discussion ends?
I could lead either or both of those, if need be, but I'm also open to having a guest blogger lead the discussion, and I'd participate on the comments, along with everyone else. That certainly worked out well for the Cosmic Trigger discussion, which was led by Charles Faris. (I wrote to Charles at the beginning of the year to see if he wanted to write anything else for the blog. His plans then were uncertain, but anything he wants to offer would be welcome anytime.) If you are interested in serving as a guest blogger, email me.
What are your thoughts?
