David Gerrold

David Gerrold has been writing professionally for half a century. He created the Sleestaks for Land Of The Lost. His most famous novel is The Man Who Folded Himself. His semi-autobiographical tale of his son’s adoption, “The Martian Child” won both the Hugo and the Nebula awards, and was the basis for the 2007 movie starring John Cusack and Amanda Peet. He also wrote some things for Star Trek once.


“David Gerrold is one of those gee-whiz-bang writers
who’s written for Star Trek, Babylon 5, and Sliders,
Land of the Lost, and When HARLIE Was One,
and won Hugos and Nebulas for his Martian son.
(And really, to answer the question that wearies,
he promises there’s a book 5 in the series).
Even at “middle age” his skill isn’t diminishing,
there are plenty of tales to be told before finishing.
If someone dislikes this rhymed form of his writing,
he has special parts of his buttocks for biting.”
