About the Author
Robert Anton Wilson was the co-author (with Robert Shea) of the underground classic the "Illuminatus!" trilogy, which won the 1986 Prometheus Hall of Fame Award. His other writings include the "Schrodinger's Cat" trilogy, called "the most scientific of all science fiction novels" by New Scientist, and many non-fiction works of Futurist psychology and guerrilla ontology. Wilson, who saw himself as a Futurist, author, and stand-up comic, regularly gave seminars at Esalan and other New Age centers. Wilson made both a comedy record (Secrets of Power), and a punk rock record (The Chocolate Biscuit Conspiracy), and his play, "Wilhelm Reich in Hell," has been performed throughout the world. His novel, "Illuminatus!," was adapted as a 10-hour science fiction rock epic and performed under the patronage of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at Great Britain's National Theatre, where Wilson appeared in a special cameo role. He was also a former editor at Playboy magazine.
