Gary K. Wolf Wikipedia
Gary K. Wolf (born January 24, 1941) is an American author and humorist. He currently resides in Boston, Massachusetts.
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 the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988).
Wolf was born in Earlville, Illinois, and 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).
