Summary

"The ultimate weapon isn't this plague out in Vegas, or any new super H-bomb. The ultimate weapon has always existed. Every man, every woman, and every child owns it. It's the ability to say No and take the consequences." - Hagbard Celine, Leviathan

Illuminatus! Part III cheerfully ushers in the apocalyptic high-camp conclusion of the Illuminatus! Trilogy. The 9th and 10th Trips are performed by a grand ensemble cast. The Appendices (which are most instructive) are performed by the incomparable Ken Campbell, bringing the audiobook trilogy full circle. The Illuminati has never looked so good. All Hail Eris!

now it's all here!

Like an expansion to a computer game, this listen makes no sense without the first two parts.

Illuminatus! is silly, paranoid, provoking, preachy, sexual, anarchistic fun. You don't have to agree with the philosophy or believe in the magic to enjoy this. It's easily the best trip you'll ever take; no one has ever matched it.

Love it or hate it, Illuminatus! is a masterpiece.

Stang

It was such a pleasure and a surprise to hear Ivan Stang (Douglas Smith) as the preacher.
Hail Eris, Praise “Bob”.

An excellent end to a great trilogy filled with esoteric truths. Make sure that you don’t skip the appendix.
