John Collier

a.k.a. John Henry Noyes Collier

Author Code: EJHC

Born: May 3, 1901 - London, England

Died: Apr. 6, 1980 - Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles, California, USA

Privately educated primarily by his mother and uncle, Collier was supported by his father for a number of years while he attempted to become a poet. It wasn't until his publication of His Monkey Wife in 1930, that Collier's reputation was secured. During the early 1930's, he produced a few novels with some success. In 1935, he moved to Hollywood, under contract to RKO, and began a very successful career as a screen writer. He returned to England in 1936 and wrote numerous short stories over the next five years, which were primarily published in the New Yorker. In 1941, Collier took American citizenship and lived in Hollywood until 1953. Thereafter, he returned to Europe and settled in France for the next 25 years. In 1979, he returned to California. He died the following year of a cerebral thrombosis. In addition to his numerous short stories and screenplays, his work includes No Traveller Returns (1931), Gemini (1931), Green Thoughts (1932), Tom's a-Cold (1933), Defy the Foul Fiend (1934), Presenting Moonshine (1941), Fancies and Goodnights (1951) and Pictures in the Fire (1958).
