I don't subject you folks to fundraising appeals, even for good causes. Hell, I don't even push my own books here. But this appeal is different. True, you've probably seen this a bazillion times on your friends list by now (and you woulda seen it here before now had I been sure it was legit), but for whatever it's worth I'm adding my voice.
St. Robert Anton Wilson, co-author of the Illuminatus! trilogy, author of Cosmic Trigger and the wonderful novel Masks of the Illuminati and, hey, more fine works than we have time to mention (but if you haven't read his books, you should, and I personally have to add The Historical Illuminatus, and hope to heaven someone actually publishes its unpublished volume!) -- yes, the breathtaking and hysterically funny and surpassingly wise Robert Anton Wilson, is currently finishing his stay on this planet....
And will run out of rent money after this month.
The man would like to die at home, with some dignity. If you would like to help him out with a few smackers, instructions are here:
Thanks to like everybody for the heads-up, and to frater_pfdv for the confirmation from Wilson's own homepage.

P.S. If you've ever said "Fnord," or "Hail Eris!," or considered yourself Discordian, or for that matter a Thelemite!, all of the above goes quintuple. A lot of us have this stuff because RAW put it out there so well. :)
