Lit Gallery with Mr. Misinformation, Rex Sorgatz himself
"No one should ever write an encyclopedia. It is a hopeless, irresponsible endeavor. Okay maaaaaybe if you’re a fifteenth-century monk biding time in the cloister for a few generations—only then, do you have an excuse to embark upon this ludicrous odyssey.
My specific compendium—The Encyclopedia of Misinformation—takes a special variety of hubris. One could say the scope comprises all of reality (or unreality), and to write just one of the 300 entries in this reference tome, I would sometimes read several scientific white papers plus a book or two or three. All to write a few hundred words about Cognitive Dissonance or Flat-Earth Theory! Given the wildly discursive subject matter, my readings ranged from difficult philosophy to forgotten pop dreck. (This page contains some of my readings along the way.)
Below is a smattering of the esoterica—10 of those books used to write my book. Pairing them with 20x200 art was a joy, because it became obvious how vast and incomprehensible the subject really is. This really released my inner monk." — Rex Sorgatz, author of The Encyclopedia of Misinformation
