A new online reading project for a Robert Anton Wilson can now be announced. Following a suggestion from Spookah, Gregory Arnott and Oz Fritz have agreed to lead a reading group on the new Robert Anton Wiilson book published by Hilaritas Press, Lion of Light.
The discussion will be hosted at the Jechidah blog, and the weekly postings will begin after Labor Day. Labor Day is Sept. 4, so it's probably a good idea to hurry and get a copy of the book, if you don't have one already. Gregory and Oz plan to alternate on doing the posts, and everyone else is invited to contribute to the discussion in the comments.
It's hard to imagine a more promising reading group, or a better opportunity for people who are interested in Robert Anton Wilson to learn about a key influence on Wilson. Aleister Crowley obviously was a major influence on RAW. Oz wrote a foreword for the new book, "Five Footprints of a Camel." Gregory wrote an afterword in the book, "Enduring Magical Biography."
In addition, Oz has read every available biography of Crowley, and I know Gregory has read more than one. I have been reading Perdurabo, the biography of Crowley written by Richard Kaczynski (who also contributed a foreword to the new book), and it has an endorsement from Oz at the front. (The version of Perdurabo I am reading is the revised and expanded edition; Oz wrote a review.)
Please consider taking part in the new reading group.
