W.E.B. Griffin FAQ

Q: Is Griffin a penname?

A: It is one of fourteen pennames for William E. Butterworth III. During the old days he would write pretty much non-stop, publishing three or four books per year. Libraries with limited budgets would not want to buy four books from a single author so Butterworth used a series of pennames to trick them into doing so. Other names included Edmund O. Scholefield, that borrowed from the middle name of his children.

Q:: How did he settle on W.E.B. Griffin?

A: William Butterworth wrote eleven book book adaptions of the movie/TV series M*A*S*H* and when he decided to move into other genres he knew he needed a different name so that readers wouldn’t be let down expecting one thing and getting another. The name got great success and ended up sticking.

The actual name Griffin was taken from the mythical creature called the griffin that has the wings of an eagle and the loins of a lion. Griffin has said that this is how most colonels see themselves so the name was perfect and fitting.

A: Yes, or sort of. W.E.B. Griffin is a penname for William E. Butterworth III and his co-author/son is William E. Butterworth IV.

1 thought on “W.E.B. Griffin”

  1. I suppose I’m one of the millions of WEB Griffin fans the greatly enjoyed the books the were authored by WEB and/or WEB and William Butterworth IV. When WEB passed away I have mourned the fact that IV has not continued writing books under either his name or WEB’s name, much like the Tom Clancy books. I think IV would continue the great story lines of his father. I am looking forward to the printing of the next book Rouge Asset, which I believe will be another excellent book co-authored by WEB and IV. I hope to see more books authored by IV written along the storylines of WEB. I think both were/are excellent authors. Frankly, I was a wee bit angry when WEB passed away. In my mind he was great and I really enjoyed his books.
