Colin Wilson is a British novelist and writer of science fiction, true crime, and
literary criticism. Wilson was born in Leicester, England on June 26, 1931 to Arthur

Wilson and a science fiction magazine given to him at a young age by his grandfather
sparked his interest in the genre for which he would publish multiple novels.
