The Illuminatus Trilogy

The first time I ever heard of the Illuminati (that shadowy Masonic organisation that controls big business, politics and the judicial system), was through the classic psychedelic opus "Illuminatus!" co-written by Bob Shea and Robert Anton Wilson.

The book remains one of my favourites to this day. An acid fuelled novel encompassing inter-dimensional travel, Woodstock Europa, Nazi Zombies, Hagbard Celine (a modern day Captain Nemo - complete with his own vast Yellow Submarine) and corrupt New York cops. Sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, all thoughtfully, originally and wittily written. Read about it here.

Buy it! Read it! Love it!
