To celebrate the 60th anniversary of The Outsider, Nottingham University will be hosting a Colin Wilson Conference with four speakers (to be confirmed) plus an exhibition of Wilson materials from their Manuscripts and Special Collections Department. Full details on how delegates can attend and who will be speaking will follow later but places are strictly limited to just 50. The cost per delegate will be £27.50 plus VAT. Free car parking, refreshments and lunch will be provided. Those who think they might like to attend should contact Colin Stanley although no final decision or money will be required from them until January 2016. This will be an important event and places are likely to go well before the anniversary date!
Wilson’s long out of print work on music, The Brandy of the Damned, has been reissued by Foruli Classics. “Dedicated to bringing the best music and popular culture books back into print.” I’m not sure if this is the shorter UK version or the expanded US version, but it incorporates some of the artwork from the UK version of the latter (confused?) which was published by Pan as Colin Wilson on Music. Phew! Meanwhile, Geoff Ward provides an introduction to a very welcome reissue of The Glass Cage. Published by Valancourt, it’s also available for Kindle.
