Although he is usually known for his cartoons, Wilson contributed some book reviews to ''F&SF'', and his story "[The title is an inkblot]" was included in Creator/HarlanEllison's anthology ''Literature/AgainDangerousVisions''. The titular inkblot (which is drawn in his distinctive style) plays an integral part in the story. He also did the illustrations for Creator/RogerZelazny's NebulaAward-nominated novel, ''Literature/ANightInTheLonesomeOctober''.
