Fortean Times CW obituary… with help from VIZ Comic

The latest issue of Fortean Times (FT310) has an excellent and lengthy (two full pages) obit by Gary Lachman which puts most of the attempts in the nationals to shame. Reading Wilson, Lachman concludes, “makes our inner gears a little bit stronger.” The letters page has a brilliant cartoon of CW from VIZ cartoonist Davey Jones who says that “I’m not the only person whose teenage ennui was eased by reading The Mind Parasites.”
Gossip also tells me that none other than Dame Edna Everage herself – well, Barry Humphries, anyway – is an admirer of Wilson. Perhaps we should guessed from this Edna quote – “There is, perhaps, no more dangerous man in the world than the man with the sensibilities of an artist but without creative talent. With luck such men make wonderful theatrical impresarios and interior decorators, or else they become mass murderers or critics.”
