Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later. Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    More recently, The KLF returned from their 23 years of inactivity with a book called 2023 which — as far as I can tell, having read neither — is kind of serial-numbers-lightly-pencilled-over Illuminatus! fanfic, mixed with 1984.

    I got it for my sister, who was a big fan of their music back in the day, but I’m not sure how aware of the Discordian side of things she was, and I keep forgetting to ask her what she made of it.

    (Oh, and I’m prepared to bet that Ford Timelord does not approve of cop cars with Punisher symbols.)

    I was at that after-party. The sheep seemed funnier back then.

    This one feels a little like a screen memory . . . was Grant never attached to the Illuminatus TV adaptation? What happened there?

    Bizarre to me how this post swung from something sublime and deeply influential for me to a discussion of a character I have loathed for literally decades.

    Yikes, I thought Chuck Dixon’s worst crime was writing mediocre DC comics.

    When I read the mention of “The Executioner” I thought of James Glickenhaus’s Exterminator films and, sure enough, direct inspiration.

    Gotta love the hair flip.

    A very interesting chapter of the book. I generally like to read books and articles on military topics. By the way, I don’t know that there is an air base in Florida. I recently read an article on a military blog about the best snipers in history. Very interesting
