Just in time ...

... for Reader’s Almanac: 6/26.

My, my. Colin Wilson is 77 today. Eccentric, to be sure, but usually fascinating. I know he has been the object of much ridicule, a good bit of it brought on by himself, but he does write well, and he communicates a passion for ideas - including some goofy one - that is admirable. Nothing wrong with thinking for yourself, and if you get some things wrong, well, join the club.

  1. Colin Wilson has penned some fine books. I loved his theory of Faculty X, as described in 'The Occult'. I also found 'The Outsider' to be very interesting. Oh, and if err is human, then to have never tried is just plain sad...Wilson tried and came through...
