His other writings include "Schrodinger's Cat Trilogy", called "the most scientific of all science fiction novels," by New Scientist, and several nonfiction works of Futurist psychology and guerilla ontology, such as Prometheus Rising and The New Inquisition.

Wilson made both a comedy record ("Secrets of Power") and a punk rock record ("The Chocolate Biscuit Conspiracy"), and his play "Wilhelm Reich in Hell" was performed at the Edmund Burke Theatre in Dublin, Ireland.

His novel "Illuminatus!" was adapted as a 10-hour science fiction rock epic and performed under the patronage of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at Great Britain's National Theatre, where Wilson appeared briefly on stage in a special cameo role. Robert Anton Wilson was also a former editor at Playboy magazine.

Give it a few years and it's very likely RA Wilson will be considered one of the greatest philosophers of the late 20th Century. Challenging, confrontational, humourous and playful, there's few philosophers in history who have touched on so many issues and challenged so many accepted views. The man responsible for popularising Discordian[FNORD]Erisian ideas, the man who very possibly kick-started many of the biggest conspiracy theories around to mess with peoples' heads, the man who, when the world is ready for his ideas, may change it. Believe nothing, challenge everything, hail Eris, viva Dischord!
