Is Melvin capable of creating a hoax? Do you think he really is behind this Barsoom fellow? Would he conceal his identity to write a secret UFO book like some on here claim? Do you know him well enough to ask him?

I can't imagine Melvin being involved in a hoax. He has always been straight about everything. I know he has an interest about the unknown and used to star gaze alot in Coal Run. But if he was writing a book on UFO's then he would just come out and say it. He would not use a fake name or trick people into giving him information. I have read his book the galactic seven. Not my cup of tea, but it is a good adventure. I heard he has another one in the works. I did not see anothing in the book that were "clues" to anything. He does like Edgar Rice Burroughs. I know he saw "The Land that Time Forgot" about seven times when it came out in the 1970's which was written by Burroughs. But I'm sure there are thousands of scifi writers that are Edgar Rice Burrough fans. I think some people on here just want to create something that is not there.

Would he be the type of person involved with the supernatural? Or at least be willing to write a book about it? I think that someone who writes scifi might be interested in UFO's. Have you asked him about these accusations? Does he know about what people are saying about him here?

Melvin is the brother of the famous Mark Wilson, who happens to be a career criminal. However, Melvin is the polar opposite of Mark.

I don't think Melvin speaks much about Mark being his brother. Mark is the blach sheep of the family. Mark and Melvin were not close growing up. I never knew them to ever do anything together. It is no suprise that people that know them both didn't know they were brothers.

In regard to Melvin and the supernatural, Melvin does have a whole section of supernatural books in his library as well as science books and history. Would Melvin actually get involved with studying the supernatural? Possibly. He would be honest about it, though, so I don't think he would chose a fake name like Barsoom to investigate it. I have never known Melvin to be anything but honest. I think all this conspiracy stuff about Melvin is hogwash. He writes scifi books only for entertainment for others. No other reason. Now, if he was inclined to writer about the so called supernatural happenings in the area, then he would do so. He would use his real name, or his author name M H Wilson, and not use a fake name. People, get real!

Why all the attention to m H Wilson?

has anyone thought that perhaps this is something that M H Wilson is doing just to promote himself. Perhaps he created this story and Barsoom just to help sell books.

If it had been anyone else, I'd be inclined to think likewise, but knowing Melvin, he probably isn't even aware that anyone is talking about him. He's a really good dude.

I agree. It isn't in Melvin's nature to be doing this just to promote a book. Besides, why would he choose Pikeville Topix to do it? I mean, there are thousands of other ways that more people would see it. Another thing, Melvin does not have a current book out right now to promote. It has been years since he has had a book out, so any self promotion right now would be a waste of time. No, this has to be the ramblings of someone's overactive imagination.

How did anyone make a connection between Barsoom and Melvin anyway? No one has ever proven who Barsoom is. Now Melvin, at least now we are finding people that know him and not one has ever suggested that Melvin would be nothing but an honest person. Not someone that would use a fake name or be investigating UFO's. So I think this story is bunk. You people need to find something else to do with your time. There is nothing to this. There is no way Melvin is connected to the federal governemt or is in any way helping them conceal secrets. Melvin is a scifi writer. I'm sure he writes fantastic things in his books, but there is where it ends. It is pure fiction. The reason he doesn't respond to this is because it is so ridiculous. It is all folly!

Yeah, I saw him at that book signing, too. I did not speak with him, but he seemed to be alright to me. He did not say anything about UFOs or anything like that. Though, is it really that much of a stretch to go from scifi to UFOs? It is odd that for a guy who supposedly is from Pikeville and lives here, that no one knows him.
