About the author (1993)

Writing in the popular science fiction/horror genre, Greg Cox knows how to please readers with the right combination of humor, action, and gore, with good inevitably triumphing over evil. Within the wide readership of Trekkies, Cox is probably best known for his ambitious trilogy written for the Star Trek: The Next Generation series. In Q-Space, Q-Strike and Q-Zone (1998), the Starship Enterprise visits the exotic locale and ever-present aliens of the Q Continuum. The author has also written and co-written more than eight other titles. Marvel Comics fans also recognize Cox's contributions to their series of cult heroes, avengers, and villains in titles such as Iron Man: Operation A.I.M (1996) and Spider-Man: Goblins Revenge (1996). Cox's approach is well-illustrated in two horror titles he has edited: Tomorrow Sucks (1994), a scientific history of vampirism and Tomorrow Bites (1995), a scientific history of lycanthropy. In the Transylvanian Library: A Consumer's Guide to Vampire Fiction the author has compiled a bibliography of 250 authors, dating from 1819 and including synopsis, critical evaluation, and notes on film and television adaptations. Greg Cox was born in 1959 and is an editor at Tor Books. He is a frequent contributor to The New York Review of Science Fiction.
