Robert Anton Wilson needs your help

Noted sci-fi and philosophy author Robert Anton Wilson (The Illuminatus Trilogy, et al) is having trouble covering his medical costs and rent. As you may know from his writings he suffered from polio as a child but had mostly been cured of it. However, he is now suffering from debilitating post-polio syndrome, may not have much longer to live, and has been unable to cover both his medical bills and rent. Some of his friends have started a donation drive so that he can continue to live in his home and receive medical care for however long he can stay with us.

Here are some things you can do to help:

Send a donation to his PayPal account:

Send a check payable to Robert Anton Wilson by mail to:

Sunday we went down to Taipei 101 (tallest building in the world) to go to Page One bookstore. Emily got a book about dinosaurs, Maggie got two travel guides, and I got V For Vendetta, Secrets Of The Millionaire Mind, The FairTax Book, Freakonomics, and Castle In The Air.

I was kind of pissed off to find that they now have The Tipping Point in stock in both trade paperback and pocket paperback. Last time I went there specifically looking for it and they didn’t have it, so I ended up ordering it from and ended up paying a lot more with the international shipping. Oh well…

For dinner we went to Chili’s were I had a Buffalo Chicken Salad (which I shared with Maggie), a chocolate cake with a huge scoop of ice cream on top (which I shared with Emily) and a large Stella Artois (which I didn’t share with anyone.
