Review of '2023'

Scott from Wisconsin, who has helped this blog before, recently read 2023:  a trilogy by the Justified Ancients of Mu Mu (e.g., Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty) and kindly wrote to me to share these thoughts:

"Imagine a book co-authored by Tom Robbins & Neal Stephenson about the intersection of one of your favorite authors (RAW) and a band (KLF) that utilized touch-points from that same author.

"Having first read the Illuminatus Trilogy back in 1976 and subsequently immersing myself in all the threads from the rest of RAW's work since, I probably got about 2/3's of the references listed in 2023.

"Using my current standard of: 'Was it time well spent?'  I would say yes, I enjoyed it."

"Was it time well spent?' seems like a good metric to me. Thanks, Scott!
