A graduate of Georgetown University, Wilson knew from an early age that he was different. He wasn’t the only person his age that loved monsters and rocket ships. But the author could already tell that his passion for the fantastical was stronger.

He remembers walking into comic book shops and losing his mind over the amazing covers he saw. When ‘The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms’ debuted, the author made it his life’s mission to watch it.

When he dipped his toes into publishing, Wilson was tempted to pursue horror. He loves the genre because it places characters and their emotions at the center. Literary horror succeeds by showing readers the reactions of the protagonists.

But Wilson chose to prioritize science fiction because the market for horror was practically nonexistent outside of small magazines. Fortunately, the public liked science fiction, and his love for the genre was just as strong.

Initially, the notion of writing a full-length novel did not appeal to Wilson. Or rather, he had neither the patience nor the strength to write one. At that time, novels were roughly 60,000 words. But that was too long for the author.

He had spent his life writing 5000-word short stories. 60,000-word manuscripts were too much for him to tackle. Some people think the author overcame that mindset when he wrote ‘Healer,’ his first novel.

But in truth, ‘Healer’ was a series of novelettes strung together as opposed to one long cohesive manuscript. ‘Wheels Within Wheels’ was the same, a combination of short stories. ‘An Enemy of the State’ was the first true novel Wilson wrote.

It marked his transition from a short story writer to a full-blown novelist. Wilson credits John W. Campbell Jr. for giving the author his big break. He kept submitting short fiction and receiving rejection slips from editors.

The submission he made to ‘Analog’ was different. Like all the other publications, ‘Analog’ rejected Wilson’s story. However, Campbell took things a step further and explained why he had rejected the story. Additionally, he told the author to make another submission.

Wilson did just that. Campbell rejected it as well. But again, he explained the rejection. This continued until the author submitted a story that ticked all of Campbell’s boxes. Wilson has described his interactions with Campbell as an unofficial writing course.

Best F. Paul Wilson Books

The author attends numerous conventions annually. He encourages readers to talk to him whenever they see him. Wilson’s best books include:

The Keep: A Nazi commander was living his worst nightmare. Something was murdering his men. So he called for help. An elite SS extermination squad was sent to find answers. But all they found was death. An invincible foe was on the prowl, waiting for an opportunity to strike. It attacked at night, taking one victim with each assault.

Ironically, the Nazis turned to a local Jewish folklore expert. While the expert attempted to shed some light on the matter, a new entity entered the picture, a man that had awoken from a nightmare before setting off to fulfill his purpose.

The Tomb: Gia’s boyfriend hates electronic appliances. However, that is the least of Repairman Jack’s quirks. Jack is a fixer. People call him when they need a quick answer to a complicated problem. This time around, Jack’s client wants the mercenary to find a stolen necklace.

But this is no ordinary necklace. An ancient curse haunts the trinket. In the wrong hands, the necklace will unleash a horde of demons.

But surprisingly, dangerous situations are not new to Jack. While others may retreat from demonic threats, Jack faces them head-on. But things are different this time around. Gia’s daughter is in trouble.

It isn’t enough for Jack to retrieve the necklace without losing his life. He must also rescue Vicky.
