This isn’t comics or cartooning related, but writer/philosopher Robert Anton Wilson, co-author of The Illuminatus Trilogy and author of numerous other fine books, is very ill from post-polio syndrome and is in need of financial aid as he can not currently support himself and needs 24 hour healthcare. More info can be found here, here and here. Fortunately, some people have organized a fund to help Wilson… two days ago he couldn’t pay his rent, and now things are looking better.

You can donate to him via “send money” on paypal to his email account.

Wilson is my favorite author and has been a huge influence on me… indeed, there probably would not be a Cartoonist Conspiracy if I had never read Wilson. If you haven’t read any of his books I can’t recommend them highly enough. You can order his books here.
