I know many readers of TDG are big fans of the late, great Robert Anton Wilson. If so, get yourself over to eBay pronto, because at the moment pieces of RAW’s personal memorabilia are on the block, and going for cheap prices. Bob’s daughter Christina explains why they’ve currently got 23 items available for sale:
He was happy and he was very loved. In his extraordinary life he also suffered deeply, loved passionately and cared profoundly, and it was an honor to grow up with him.
And he left some hefty debts behind that must be dealt with so that we can move on and do what he truly wanted, which was this: help his disabled son, keep his works alive and available, and of course keep the lasagna flying.
My parents were not very material, but they truly enjoyed the items around them. Over the years, such an eclectic collection of things appeared, often taking up every spare nook. So many of them have stories! I hope the sale of these items will help manifest RAW’s dreams and help to put his debts to rest.
So here’s a fantastic opportunity to have an authentic RAW artifact, in your own reality tunnel, to inspire, generate conversation, and most of all to connect with the quintessential insight, humor and brilliance of a great human being!
Over the next few weeks, I will be listing items in batches, so I do hope you keep your eye on this site and visit often. It would mean a lot to Bob to know that the things that gave him joy are out and about the world, in homes of folks who cared, and would garner some enjoyment from them. We are starting with 23 items, of course.
Currently some of the prices are waaaay too cheap, so get your auction suit on and head on over there. (h/t to Greg Bishop at UFO Mystic)
