The sequel to the cult classic The Illuminatus! Trilogy, this is an epic fantasy that offers a twisted look at our modern-day world--a reality that exists in another dimension of time and space that may be closer than we think.

About the Author

Robert Anton Wilson (1932-2007) was the author of some thirty-five books including Cosmic Trigger, Prometheus Rising, and the Schrodinger's Cat Trilogy, and the co-author of the Illuminatus! Trilogy. He was a futurist, author, lecturer, stand-up comic, guerrilla ontologist, psychedelic magician, outer head of the Illuminati, quantum psychologist, Taoist sage, Discordian Pope, Struthian politician . . . maybe. He described his work as an "attempt to break down conditioned associations, to look at the world in a new way, with different perspectives recognized as models or maps, and no one model elevated to the truth."

The Universe Next Door (at least) was meant to be a sequel to Illuminatus! and was remoulded into this trilogy when RAW's publicists told him he was crazy. Personally I think this was for the best. I don't think that I would have enjoyed reading these three in separate books. Like Illuminatus!, I'm grateful that I have them all in one volume. Certainly no where near as messed up and intricate as Illuminatus!, but still quite ingenious in it's own right. I feel there may have been maybe a little too much repetition of RAW's linguistic tricks spilling over in this novel, but they can easily be overlooked as the novelty here is vastly superior to anything else I've read in a while. I can't really write a decent review here; again, RAW has successfully written a book I enjoyed immensely but cannot begin to describe. Best you read it for yourself.

Parallel universes are certainly not a stretch, when you think about all the bizarre stuff that Robert Anton Wilson comes up with. Here we have another Illuminati trilogy style collection, even with some of the same characters. However, these are alternate universe versions of these people, hence the title of the trilogy.

If you don't like that original trilogy, you are probably not going to like this.
