Colin Wilson R.I.P. (1931-2013)

According to Loren Coleman, Colin Wilson passed away on December 5th.  You can read Coleman's full obituary by clicking HERE

Rest in peace, Mr. Wilson, and thanks especially for giving us The Mind Parasites (1967) and "The Return of the Lloigor" (1969).  If I had to single out only a handful of favorite H.P. Lovecraft pastiches, these two works by Wilson would certainly sit near the top of the list alongside Fritz Leiber's Our Lady of Darkness (1977) and Robert Bloch's Strange Eons (1978).  "The Return of the Lloigor" can be found in August Derleth's Arkham House anthology entitled Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos, and is well worth seeking out....
