    Colin Wilson is a very prolific British writer who has published

    Colin Wilson is a very prolific British writer who has published something like 3 books a year for the last fifty years. He's written all sorts of fiction, mostly science-fiction and mystery, and non-fiction about the occult and paranormal. It is an amazing life, and even more amazing is that after all that writing (which makes Stephen King look like a slacker!), he still has plenty to say. If you're a fan, this is a treat--an extended interview with the writer himself. He knew T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Anthony Burgess, Vivian Leigh, Arthur Miller, Marilyn Monroe, Ionesco, Robert Graves and others of his generation, and he's not shy about telling tales out of school. An obsessive reader (when does he have time?), he gives the viewer a tour of the large storage sheds around his property, each chock-full of books, an impressive collection as large as any mid-sized city library. He's a writer's writer, who still loves to write, and although he hasn't achieved the success he might have wanted, he stands as an inspiration to every other writer. After he discusses his own fascinating spiritual journey, his wife, Joy Wilson, tells her version of their lives together. Yes, amazing.
