Michael Coleman Talbot was an American author of several books highlighting parallels between ancient mysticism and quantum mechanics, and espousing a theoretical model of reality that suggests the physical universe is akin to a hologram based on the research and conclusions of David Bohm and Karl H. Pribram. According to Talbot ESP, telepathy, and other paranormal phenomena are a product of this holographic model of reality.

Talbot was originally a fiction/science fiction/Horror author. He also contributed articles to The Village Voice and other publications.

Talbot attempted to incorporate spirituality, religion and science to shed light on profound questions. His non-fiction books include Mysticism And The New Physics, Beyond The Quantum, and The Holographic Universe (freely available at the Internet Archive).

Although Talbot is not known to have made it much of a political issue, he was openly gay, living with a boyfriend, and has become a role model for gay intellectuals. In 1992, Talbot died of lymphocytic leukemia at age 38.
