Hilaritas Press will publish Starseed Signals: Link Between Worlds, a never-published Robert Anton Wilson book written in 1974 apparently exploring the ideas of Timothy Leary. The "lost" book has been known about for years thanks largely to Discordian scholar and author Adam Gorightly and there was a previous attempt to publish it that was never completed.
The announcement came as part of a discussion on Twitter and the dialogue is worth reproducing. (Prop Anon is a New York City writer, musician and activist wrapping up a biography of Robert Anton Wilson. Hilaritas Press is the publishing imprint of the Robert Anton Wilson Trust. I don't know Neurophere but there's a website.)

Robert Anton Wilson made the case for Abolishing Prisons in his unpublished book STARSEED SIGNALS
RAW hung out w Black Panthers & got the idea from them
Shout Out to Adam Gorightly for locating the book
Maybe one day it will be published

wait what? Unpublished RAW???
PROP ANON @PropAnon Jun 11
Wilson wrote a book called "Starseed Signals"
in 1974. It focused on the work of Timothy Leary. In it RAW advocated the immediate release of his buddy
Much of the work was recycled into later writings like Cosmic Trigger when the book wasn't published
But there's stuff in there

The RAW Trust's Hilaritas Press will be publishing "The Starseed Signals: Link Between Worlds." We don't know the exact date, but it's coming up fairly soon!
It turns out that only a little in The Starseed Signals made it into Cosmic Trigger, so a lot of "new" RAW to read!!

That's great news
That's about all I know at this point. I've never seen the manuscript. More in my earlier blog postings about the "lost" book, here and here.
