Gary Brandner

ob-main-brandner2Gary Brandner (May 31, 1930 – September 22, 2013) was best known as the author of The Howling, but met with great success with many of his works throughout the 1970s and 1980s. He sold his first story to Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine while working as a technical writer in 1969.  His success with The Howling in 1977 made him the publishing company Fawcett Crest’s cornerstone in the genre during the horror fiction boom years with novels such as Walkers, Hellborn, Carrion, Quintana Roo, and Cameron’s Closet, which was adapted to film using his screenplay in 1988. He was the author of over 30 novels and more than 100 short stories, mostly horror, but also the Big Brain series and a few non-genre works.  He lived in Nevada, and died of esophageal cancer at the age of 83.
