A minor character in Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson's gonzo novel Illuminatus!. Atlanta Hope is the leader of God's Lightning, a domestic terrorist group whose philosophy is a schizoid fusion of Objectivism, the Religious Right, and the Ku Klux Klan -- even though it started as a splinter off of Women's Liberation. Hope herself is mostly a parody of Ayn Rand, but with Rand's affinity for Aristotle replaced with a fixation on the obscure Heraclitus. She is the author of Telemachus Sneezed among other works.

Like many of the other characters in Illuminatus!, Atlanta Hope is an agent of the Bavarian Illuminati.
