I wrote a letter to Colin in 1980 concerning my Criminal last names idea and received a polite reply

Hey,

I wanted to say thanks for the heads-up on the passing of Colin Wilson. He has been an important writer in my life and it is sad to hear that he is no longer with us.

Thanks again.

Another great thinker gone (or as he might say, 'changed and no longer obviously active in our common "living" environment').

His works are very enlightening, entertaining and hold some truly revolutionary (at the time) thinking. He is another who has had massive influence on our collective pool of ideas and is largely under-the-radar. He had a huge effect on my generation's view of reality.

Well, now he can find out if poltergeist's are human mind creations (or tulpas) or actually external spiritual entities (if either exist independently of one another).

The world is even dumber now. Thanks for the (possibly) melancholy news.

And I use 'possibly melancholy' as a caveat in the sense that a couple breaking up can be seen as a joyous time when each is free of a horrible situation, and thus life might be a 'bad relationship' for all we know, and death a time of celebration...

His books had a big impact on my life as well...Especially the Sci Fi classic The Mind Parasites and his non-fiction works....
Before the internet there were not very many sources of information about the kind of topics that Wilson wrote about....
