Member of the Wilkie Collins Society.


The Wilkie Collins Society was founded in 1980 to promote interest in the life and works of this important nineteenth-century writer. His best known works are The Woman in White and The Moonstone. But Wilkie Collins wrote more than twenty other novels and around 100 short stories as well as a dozen plays and numerous essays and pieces of journalism. His books have attracted readers for a more than a century and a half and his unconventional lifestyle has intrigued the literary world for nearly as long. More than 3000 of his letters have been collected and the Society publishes new discoveries as they are made.
