Publisher's Summary

The great modern classic of a brilliant rebel's personal exploration into the nature of consciousness.
"Cosmic Trigger deals with a process of deliberately induced brain change. This process is called 'initiation' or 'vision quest' in many traditional societies and can loosely be considered some dangerous variety of self-psychotherapy in modern terminology. I do not recommend it for everybody...briefly, the main thing I learned in my experiments is that 'reality' is always plural and mutable." (Robert Anton Wilson, from the preface)
Narration by Oliver Senton, "Robert Anton Wilson" in Daisy Eris Campbell's stage production of Cosmic Trigger.
Based on The Robert Anton Wilson Trust Authorized Hilaritas Press Edition.
Published by Hilaritas Press.


What the Critics Say

"Wilson managed to reverse every mental polarity in me, as if I had been pulled through infinity. I was astonished and delighted." (Philip K. Dick)
"Erudite, witty, and genuinely scary." (Publishers Weekly)
"Robert Anton Wilson is one of the leading thinkers of the modern age." (Barbara Marx Hubbard, Committee for the Future)

Food For Your Brain

If you've never read it before you had better put your seat belt on and hold tight, if you have then jump back on the ride all over again. Plenty of info, insight and humour for those interested in conspiracies, future ideas and/or just esoteric humour. Cult novelist extraordinaire read in exactly the way you would want to hear it.

Saint Bob in form

Would you consider the audio edition of Cosmic Trigger I to be better than the print version?

Probably not, but that would be a hard trick to pull off.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The Oliver Senton did a pretty good job of rendering Bob's voice. Gave him (a harsh) 4 stars because I'm used to Bob's voice.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Daisy Eris Campbell made a stage version, so I guess a film is possible...

Any additional comments?

Looking forward to Cosmic Trigger 2 & 3
