Ok, now that I'm almost done with the first part of The Illuminatus! Trilogy by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson, I really want to play the INWO card game again, now that I'm understanding the source material better. Besides, I kind of like having the Diciples of Cthulhu controlling the Religious Reich and The Society for Creative Anarchism. (I haven't played in ages, but as I recall, it is kinda fun.)

I'm still convinced that the writing style is along the lines of Kurt Vonnegut Jr., and the set-up (multiple points of view from just about every character) was used later by Keith Hartmann in his excellent Gorilla mysteries. All the drug references though...Did people actually survive some of the chemicals they describe in here? A little bit of THC is one thing, but THC, LSD, peyote, and PCP all at once? I think I'd be a raving paranoid after that as well.

And yes, I know I'm posting an in-progress book review to this journal rather than thereadingroom or glbt_books, or any of the other fine reading commies on here. What can I say? Maybe it's all really just a plot...
