Dunno about the 'truther' assertion though...

yeah, he was far more nuanced than that. I can see a hybrid of 'truther' and pro-Jihadist sympathizer. Some sort of cosmic transdimensional break, where both sides are trying to cause it for different reasons. Alternate dimensions conflicting and opening up into NOVA-11... unreadable jibberish.. go back to Cities + Wild Boys, etc.

Interesting article. I can see where he is coming from though and agree with some points.

The real point is pop & hip WSB hagiographists never actually talk about what his books are like. You would get the impression that Junkie & Queer are the standard and not the exceptions.
