I didn't like Valis. I hate it when an author I like, late in life, starts
putting out really, really, really talky, self-indulgent novels that an
editor won't throw back because of the "name" of the author.
Heinlein's last stuff was crap, too. And a bunch of others. Bah!
They should take up macrame instead of putting out crap. Give
me the early, clear thinking and deviously clever PKD anyday.

Kurt Vonnegut! At least Slaughterhouse Five and Cat's Cradle are truly weird books.
Don't you have good garbage?

And Breakfast of Champions is a great one too.

i reallized i've read illuminatus 4 times in a row and nothing in between, i need to get off this raw trip, so what are some other books that are head-trippy in the saw way illuminatus is (excluding other raw books)?

See if you can find some old Mad Magazines.  The newer ones are more hit and miss.

Wilhelm Reich?

Korzybski?




I think they wee talking about philosophical fiction, not research papers or textbooks.  

Then again, I have read more than a few Reich books, myself.


Ooh! I got it!  a Reich book that is fan-fucking-tastic!  Listen, Little Man!  It's incredible.  It's one of those books peole keep stealing from me & not giving back.

Anything by Bukowski is great, but "Women" and "Tales of Ordinary Madness" are particularly great...

I hear that Holy Bible is pretty head-trippy. Makes Philip K. Dick look like a Sunday school teacher.

When I was censoring the Bible in the hotel room, I should've thought to put "Bad trip, John?" on a page of Revelations. Thought of it on the car ride home. I did black out all mention of God's name on the first page of Genesis, and drew and Illuminati pyrimid somewhere in there. Other stuff I can't remember too.
"we are building a religion
we are making a brand
we're the only ones to turn to when your castles turn to sand
take a bite of this apple
mister corporate events
take a walk through the jungle
of cardboard shanties and tents
some people drink pepsi
some people drink coke
the wacky morning dj says democracy's a joke
he says now do you believe in the one big song
he is now accepting callers who would like to sing along"


I AM A COMPLETE AND UTTER FUCKING IDIOT!
