Biography's Source:

Elliot S. Maggin has written stories about his heroes-both real and made-up ones-since he was very young. He started publishing them at sixteen, when a boys' magazine accepted his time travel story about Winston Churchill and the Boer War. He has written at least five hundred comic book stories, including serving, on and off, as a principal writer of Superman comics from 1971 until 1986. He has written television, film, animation, journalism, speeches, and technical manuals, and designed software games. He is the author of two earlier bestselling Superman novels, Last Son of Krypton and Miracle Monday. Kingdom Come is his fifth novel.

Mr. Maggin has also raised horses, run for public office, taught at various high schools and colleges, and spent several winters skiing to excess. If he had not become a writer and still had managed to escape law school, he would probably have been a cowboy. He is the father of two and the husband of one. Like many of the characters whose company he enjoys best, he has grave primal doubts and knows very little for certain, but he essentially believes in everything. Even you.
