John Collier

Biography: A writer of ingenious short stories, some quite gruesome and others rather fey, John Collier became famous in 1930 with the publication of his first novel, "His Monkey Wife", which is about exactly what the title suggests. However, short stories were mostly what he wrote, and he combined elegant brevity with considerable wit and outrageous imagination in nearly all of them. His work was a gift to the producers of anthology TV shows and certain of his stories - "Back For Christmas", "De Mortuis", "Wet Saturday" - have been turned into TV dramas more than once. He also wrote several film scripts - "Sylvia Scarlett", "I Am A Camera" and "The War Lord" amongst them.
