Wilson was perhaps the first living person to receive the award who had no direct association with the original ECG or its spinoffs. Moondancer, a member of the original ECG, was a friend of Wilson's daughter Luna, and the award is given on his birthday, but there's no evidence he was involved with the club. Wilson was a contributor to Principia Discordia and, with Robert Shea, popularized Discordianism in The Illuminatus! Trilogy. Members of the Church of the SubGenius know him as Pope Bob, and Discordians as Mordecai Malignatus.
