Gary K. Wolf

I wrote my first short story when I was in the third grade. Our teacher told us to write about our summer vacation. I wrote about my trip to the moon! I always did have an over active imagination. I've gone back to the moon many times since. Also to places in the galaxy far, far beyond that. I've written many short stories and ten novels. I'm well known for two kinds of writing. My science fiction novels include Killerbowl, A Generation Removed, The Resurrectionist, Space Vulture an old-school, throwback, pulp science fiction novel which I co-wrote with my childhood friend Catholic Archbishop John J. Myers,, and my newest Typical Day. Hollywood seems to especially enjoy my work. Both Killerbowl and The Resurrectionist are currently in production as major motion pictures. My other kind of writing isn't as easily categorized. I call it fantasy fiction. I was told early on by a marketing executive at a major publishing house that this kind of writing wouldn't sell. Because there was no place for it on the bookstore shelves. It's not a regular novel, not crime, not science fiction, not romance. I asked him what he would do if he got Gulliver's Travels, The Wizard of Oz, or Alice In Wonderland? He thought for a moment and told me he couldn't sell those either. Well, he was wrong. My fantasy novel, Who Censored Roger Rabbit? did indeed get published. It went through sixteen printings. It became a visual reality in Disney/Spielberg's $950 million blockbuster film Who Framed Roger Rabbit. The film won four Academy Awards and the Hugo Award. Walt Disney Pictures has also purchased film rights to my sequel novel Who P-p-p-plugged Roger Rabbit? I currently live in Boston but regularly travel around the world.
