Biography:

(1929 - 1967) Born Charles Leroy Nutt.
Beaumont began publishing in 1951 with "The Devil, You Say?" Beaumont was a major writer who brought horror and fantasy into the mainstream. He was all over the place, writing for Playboy, the movies, television, and even Walt Disney. He wrote eighteen episodes of The Twilight Zone and screenplays for nearly as many movies, including The Seven Faces of Dr. Lao. Beaumont liked to collaborate, as many busy writers do, and worked with Chad Oliver and William F. Nolan, among others.

More than twenty years after his death, a collection of Beaumont's short stories published by Dark Harvest in 1988, entitled Charles Beaumont: Selected Stories, won the 1989 Bram Stoker Award for Best Collection. A volume of his uncollected stories was published in 1999 by Subterranean Press.
