It was the year when they finally immanentized the Eschaton.

So begins this original trilogy of conspiracies, Illuminatus!. For the first time in audiobook form, the unabridged epic is presented in all its grandeur, spookiness, hilarity, and brilliance.

The Illuminati, an inside joke? The lunatic fringe? Or a vast conspiracy hidden for centuries, unleashing it's power on a naive, defenseless world? It was the lousy luck of Saul Goodman, a tough, streetwise New York detective, to smell the trail in a bombed-out office - the heavy case he'd always dreaded. In a breakneck race against an awesome deadline, Goodman plunges down the trail of the ultimate conspiracy as the days fall away toward Apocalypse.

Filled with sex, violence, and rock-and-roll, in and out of time and space, Illuminatus! is only partly a work of the imagination. The trilogy tackles all the cover-ups of our time, from who really shot the Kennedys to why there's a pyramid on the one-dollar bill, and suggests a mind-blowing truth.

Part I: The Eye in the Pyramid is performed by the incomparable Ken Campbell and Chris Fairbank. In 1976, Ken Campbell adapted Illuminatus! for the stage, creating a 10-hour epic that went on to open the Royal National Theatre in London under the patronage of Queen Elizabeth II.

    " Ok...it's actually written by Robert Anton Wilson, one of the greatest psychedelic thinkers of our time, sadly passed away a little over a year ago, I think. "

    " My ninth grade English teacher taught us to use character-webs for Dickens. This was the first book I had to use it on since then. "

    " Dan Brown's "Angels and Demons" doesn't even compare. This trilogy is a brilliant mix of sci-fi, noire, and conspiracy theory fiction, "

    " I remember this being one of those books that's awesome despite seeming like it was written by people taking drugs, but it's been so long... wonder if I would love it now, however many years later? Gonna have to re-read some day. "
