Audio: Prop Anon on his new RAW biography


Logo for the Confluence SF convention. 

Some audio that may well interest some of you: My interview (with Gregory Arnott also participating) of Prop Anon about his upcoming new biography of Robert Anton Wilson: Chapel Perilous: The Life and Thought Crimes of Robert Anton Wilson. I expect you will learn quite a bit. Topics covered include the circumstances under which RAW and Arlen met, why RAW's family moved around so much, what are the best sources of documents about RAW, whether he really was a member of OTO, and much more. 

Prop was not able to be physically present at Confluence in Pittsburgh this past weekend, but through the magic of Skype, he showed up anyway.

This prompted me to go down a small rabbit hole, and I learned that Janet Riley was married for a few years in the '50s to Werner Klemperer, who went on to play Colonel Klink.

A really nice info-rich interview! I'm looking forward to reading the book!

When's the book? I've literally had the email announcing it in my inbox for years! I believe the original date was 2017, is everything ok?

Gene,

All I know for sure is that no publication date has been announced. When there is news, I will post it on the blog.
