McCoy, Max

Tagged: Author

(1958-    ) US journalist and author whose novel – Jesse: A Novel of the Outlaw Jesse James (1999), in which the outlaw survives to tell his story to Mark Twain – veers close to Alternate History. Of his other work, a series of Ties to the Indiana Jones Shared World series, derived from but not replicating the film stories, begins with Indiana Jones and the Philosopher's Stone (1995), intelligently applying Pulp-magazine idioms to tales with sf content; the third volume of the sequence, Indiana Jones and the Hollow Earth (1997), takes Jones into a traditional Hollow Earth inner landscape.
