Stephen Cox (writer)
Stephen L. (Steve) Cox (born January 26, 1966) is an American freelance writer. He is the author of more than twenty books specializing in popular culture, film and television. He is best known for his 1989 tribute to The Wizard of Oz entitled The Munchkins Remember, which led to many personal appearances throughout the USA for the oft-neglected little people.
His 2006 coffee-table biography of Stooge Larry Fine has received much acclaim from fans of the enduring comedy team, The Three Stooges. Culling materials from Fine's personal archives, including hundreds of unpublished photographs, the project remains the definitive account of the middle Stooge.
He has written for TV Guide, The Hollywood Reporter, US magazine, and has contributed feature stories to Los Angeles Times. Raised in St. Louis, Missouri, Cox graduated from Park College (now Park University) and has been interviewed on programs such as CNN and Biography.
