F. Paul Wilson is the award-winning, bestselling author of fifty-plus books and nearly one hundred short stories spanning science fiction, horror, adventure, medical thrillers, and virtually everything between. His novels regularly appear on the New York Times Bestsellers List. The Tomb received the Porgie Award from The West Coast Review of Books; Wheels Within Wheels won the first Prometheus Award. His novella “Aftershock” won a Stoker Award. He was voted Grand Master by the World Horror Convention and received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Horror Writers of America. He also received the prestigious San Diego ComiCon Inkpot Award and is listed in the 50th anniversary edition of Who's Who in America.
In 1983 Paramount rendered his novel The Keep into a visually striking but otherwise incomprehensible movie with screenplay and direction by Michael Mann. The Tomb has spent 20 years in development hell at Beacon Films (“Air Force One,” “Thirteen Days,” etc.) as “Repairman Jack.” The plan has been to make Repairman Jack a franchise character. Godot might arrive sooner.
Over nine million copies of his books are in print in the US and his work has been translated into twenty-four languages. He also has written for the stage, screen, and interactive media. His latest thrillers, Dark City and Fear City star his urban mercenary, Repairman Jack. He recently wrote A Necessary End with Sarah Pinborough.
