I have already reviewed the first book in this series, but thought I would drop in and point out some stuff about this.
Wilson doesn't just walk a fine line here, he engages in metaplot. The story also serves as a platform for a critique on pedagoguery, via the seldom used function of the footnote war. Sigismundo's tale, at the same time, is a ripping adventure, a political diatribe, a lesson in various traditions and several kinds of funny all at the same time.
When the world turns upside down, watch carefully. Wilson moves a player off the board and into the action deftly, and, as always, with great humor. This is a book that you can read a hundred times and always discover something new. Buy all three now while they are available!
by the way...Robert Anton Wilson passed on earlier this year, and today's rabid conspiracy buffs should always read Wilson. He found humor in the most shocking of things, and dignity and honor in the oddest of places. So should we all.
