Heathcote Williams (1941-2017)

By Steve Green: Heathcote Williams, British writer and actor, died 1 July, aged 75. Genre appearances include Slipstream (1989), Orlando (1992), Alice in Wonderland (1999), The Sandman (2000), Dinotopia (two episodes, 2002-3), and City of Ember (2008).

On a personal note, Ann and I caught him on a promotional reading tour for his verse-novel Whale Nation (1986). He was spectacular.

  1. I had the good fortune to see him perform Autogeddon a few decades ago at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. A wonderful performance.
