Recommended Internet resources for Colin Wilson

The Phenomenology of Excess

The Phenomenology of Excess, compiled and published by Philip Coulthard, is by far the best of several websites dedicated to Colin Wilson's work. It contains twelve pages: the first being an introductory essay about the man and his work with interlinks explaining various philosophical terms. The Philosophy page discusses his New Existentialism. Pages headed Crime and Occult assess his contribution to these subjects whilst the 'Fiction' page looks at the novels he has written in a variety of genres. The site contains essays by Wilson himself on two of his important books: Introduction to the New Existentialism (1966) and Beyond the Outsider (1965). Podcasts of Wilson speaking about various aspects of his work are available if you have QuickTime installed on your computer. There are also booklist and links pages for further study.
