Luther Blissett and Wu Ming: Authoring Beyond Authority

This is a wide ranging group of people that focuses around some authors but goes way beyond them.  What started off as Luther Blissett (Read here for a great interview with the man himself on the original situation) evolved way beyond it after their five year planned symbolic suicides.  Some of the highlights included are the satanic cultists and the defining of the concept “copyleft” (The partial or total reproduction of this book, in electronic form or otherwise, is consented to for non-commercial purposes, provided that the original copyright notice and this notice are included and the publisher and source are clearly acknowledged.) within this biography of their evolution:

Also included are their books (which are free, but you can also donate if you like):

And other writings of theirs:

All in all an interesting way of diffusing artistic creations.
