As a young teenager he read dozens of the Destroyer series, in which Remo Williams was trained by the Sinanju Master Chiun from Korea. RXTT also discovered the work of Kurt Vonnegut and read everything he wrote. Since his main focus was always non-fiction books, he soon progressed to reading anything he could get his hands on that explored the Occult, Art, Science History, Music, Free-thought, and Philosophy. As an older teenager he discovered the works of Hunter S. Thompson and Charles Bukowski, proceeding to read everything they put out as well. Taking advantage of the University of Houston Library, he plowed through books on topics as diverse as early 20th century Spanish Anarchism, the German Free-thought movement, Quantum Mechanics, cosmology, Picasso, ancient cave paintings, etc. As he grew older his love of books grew and grew and began to encompass even more esoteric and diverse fields of study. Reading the Autobiography of Malcom X really resonated with him, especially the passage where Malcolm was taught by a fellow inmate how to read for personal education, and not just for "entertainment." It was a long while before RXTT read another novel.
In his 20's RXTT began to read all of the cyberpunk and science fiction writers he had neglected, with an emphasis on Issac Asimov, Greg Bear, Rudy Rucker, and Arthur C. Clarke, and his obsession with hard-science fiction never abated. These readings drew him to the work of Robert Anton Wilson (RAW), specifically the Illuminatus Trilogy he co-wrote with Robert Shea. He then proceeded to find and read everything that Robert Anton Wilson ever wrote, in the process discovering many other books and writers that RAW would reference, such as Buckminster Fuller, Alfred Korzybski, and others.
More recently, RXTT has read extensively on the subjects of mythology, symbolism, neurosciences, identity, the acquisition of knowledge, reality, and religious history, and is always up for any recommendation that may come his way. He will stop reading when they pry the books from his cold, dead hands.
