Warwick Collins

Posted at 7:27AM Tuesday 12 Feb 2013

As well as being a talented novelist, screenwriter, poet and evolutionary theorist, Warwick Collins was a cantankerous bugger. He was so sure of his own talent that he pretty much refused to be edited. This was not a problem when it came to Gents (previously published by someone else) or The Sonnets (it really didn't need very much work) but it did mean that we disagreed about a fair bit of his remaining unpublished work. I was keen to publish some of the mini-novels but not all of them. I was very interested in his book about evolution but wanted it written in a more accessible style. I did not think his epic poem, Tony Blair: The Accidental Fascist, would be overly popular and told him so. We didn't speak much after that.
