Robert Anton Wilson was born Jan. 18, 1932, in Brooklyn, so if he were alive today, he'd be marking his 86th birthday. I stole the "Wilsonmas" coinage from Eric Wagner.
Although it's been 11 years since his death in 2007, interest in him has not seemed to diminish. I'm still getting comments posted on Sunday's post about RAW's Crowley writings (go see the new comments from the likes of Oz Fritz and Adam Gorightly). And see Gregory Arnott's recent Tumblr post, linking the Utopians in the novels of science fiction's hottest new writer, Ada Palmer, to the Leary/Wilson SMI2LE project.
I renewed the RAWIllumination.net registration for another year this week. While my traffic numbers will never impress our friends at Boing Boing, traffic on this site continues to slowly creep upward. It's not bad for a blog devoted to an obscure writer who never had a best seller.
