|Gary K. Wolf|
January 24, 1941 |
Gary Wolf is perhaps best known for a series of comedic mystery novels featuring the now famous Roger Rabbit, a cartoon character who inhabits an alternate universe where so-called "toons" (an abbreviation for the word "cartoons") and humans co-exist. The series begins with the novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit? (1981), which was the basis of a popular movie, Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988).
Wolf has a master's degree in advertising, given by the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign. Wolf and childhood friend John J. Myers, Catholic Archbishop of Newark, co-wrote a novel named Space Vulture, released from TOR books during 2008. Wolf and co-author Jehane Baptiste have a story named "The UnHardy Boys in Outer Space" in the annual anthology of humorous science fiction, Amityville House of Pancakes Vol 3 (ISBN 1-894-95335-5).
