William F Wu


(William Franking Wu)
USA (1951 - )

William F. Wu has been a 5-time nominee for the Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy Awards. He is the author of the six-volume young adult science fiction series Isaac Asimov's Robots in Time and the rollicking, satiric cyber-western, Hong on the Range, among many other books. He is best known for his contemporary fantasy stories, such as "Wong's Lost and Found Emporium," a multiple-award nominee that was adapted into an episode of the Twilight Zone, and reprinted for the ninth time in A Century of Fantasy: Best Stories of the Decade, 1980 - 1989, edited by Robert Silverberg.
