Thanks to this thread, I was finally introduced to this amazing author.

Can't honestly thank enough those who recommended this man's books. I'm still reading Prometheus, but since I picked up, I cannot let go of it yet.

worth reading again... as its quite an in depth read...

I like him because he does not tell you what it true or false.... he tells you its all possible and not to become dogmatic about anything... another author you might like who was friends with RAW and published his books is Christopher Hyatt...

I've got the Illuminatus trilogy waiting to be read, but how am I going to read this without seeing our own Celine Hagbard in my mind?

The play "Wilhelm Reich in Hell" sounds rather interesting!

As you've worked out by reading it, my username is a character from that book. It without a doubt the best novel I've ever read!

but I don't look like the guy in the story! I'm not hairy like he is! Well, not as hairy!

I just started this morning!

Very entertaining.

Rather bizarre!

But clearly with some deeper knowledge beneath the superficial storyline.

It reminds me of The Hitchhikers Guide....

*** Remember that it was a trilogy, so take it one book at a time...

But from what I've read so far, once you've got going you won't want to stop...

I've only just started to read the trilogy, but I already noted the name Hagbard Celine in the summary and reviews...

Hagbard is hairy!

Okay!

New image forming...

I read the first few pages and kept thinking I was having an acid flash back , so i thought I should get stuck into it when I have a bit of free time to get stuck into it properly!

If they made a film of it , it would be one of those ones you might need to watch a couple more times to know what's was going on...

Actually I'm as bald as a coot!... at least on my head!

Hope you enjoy the Trilogy. I envy you; I can never read it for the first time again.

It would be a very hard film to produce. However it was adapted into a stage show that was produced once. Jim Broadbent and Ken Campbell starred in it.

I never quite understood the fnord bit.

BTW: how long have you been back, Ad. I rather missed disagreeing with somebody who was polite.

yeah it would probably have to be done with a huge budget.... and done by someone who totally new the score.. not to mention fantastic actors..

would have liked to check out the stage show!

Its also sitting on my bookshelf as yet unread

If its as good as Schrodingers Cat then it'll be a treat.

Im currently reading Cosmic Trigger and I really wish I had read it 10 years earlier. Then, though, I most probably would not have understood it at all and dismissed it as being utter nonsense. Its tying up a hell of a lot of loose ends for me as well as introducing me to a whole new host of ideas and people.

I feel very honoured to be a part of this world that I didnt even know existed a few years ago.

I know what you mean!

I'm nearly at the end of the first book and this definitely the weirdest, most bizarre read I've ever had!

It was done in the 70's. I'd love to have seen it. Jim Broadbent has won an Oscar and become a household name since then; Ken Campbell continued to star in esoteric comedy. I'll see if I can find a copy of the script.

It's truly "Dischordian" and anarchic! I love that about it. It breaks all the rules you'd learn at a creative writing class, but it breaks them with breathtaking style. I think I fell in love with Hagbard Celine after I read the flashback scene of him in court trying to stop that dam being built.
