Biography:

Eugene DeWeese couldn't make enough money writing a science fiction column for the local paper, so he became an electronics whiz and worked for NASA, including five years on the Apollo program writing manuals and programming guidance systems for LEMs and Command Modules. His first real job, though, was a collaboration with Robert Coulson on a Man From Uncle novel under the name "Thomas Stratton". "It has the distinction," (says Gene) "of being the only sale I know of in which the title, the author's names, and the dedication were all rejected but the manuscript was accepted (except for a reference to a dirigible that wasn't house broken, which they edited out)." Since then he's whacked out forty-odd books (including five more collaborations with Coulson) in various categories including science fiction, mysteries, horror, romance, computers and...doll making ? He has written three or four Star Trek novels, a Lost in Space, and a few Dinotopia novels. His Adventures of a Two-Minute Werewolf was made into an ABC Weekend Special.

Gene was born in 1934 and died 19 March 2012.
