Around the Outsider - Colin Wilson is 80

Around the Outsider

This June sees the 80th birthday of Colin Wilson, a writer who has played a key role (see this site's page on Wilson) in both the criticism and continued publication of David Lindsay's works. Wilson's oeuvre is wide and varied, and is celebrated in a festschrift issued next month by O Books, Around the Outsider: Essays Presented to Colin Wilson on the Occasion of His 80th Birthday.

Edited by Colin Stanley, Around the Outsider includes essays on Wilson's novels, literary criticism, criminology, philosophy, autobiography, etc., from a host of writers and academics, including David Power (who has written a book on David Lindsay). It also has an essay by me, specifically about Colin Wilson's writings on Lindsay.
