Prolific British writer Colin Wilson passed away on Thursday, December 5. He had suffered a stroke earlier this year and had been in poor health.

Wilson will be remembered for his large body of work including those that may be familiar to Forteans and Paranormalists. He also wrote several Lovecraftian Cthulhu Mythos pieces, also about true crime, biographies of historical figures, and serial killers. Some of the popular books you may have or have come across in your library:

The Unexplained (1975)
