Meyers, Richard S

Tagged: Author

(1953-    ) US author who publishes also as Wade Barker. His sf novels are of relatively little interest, though the Doomstar sequence – Doom Star (1978; rev vt Doomstar 1985) and Doom Star Number Two (1979; rev vt Return to Doomstar 1985) – are moderately entertaining Space Operas. The Book of the Undead is horror [see Checklist]. Stan Lee Presents the Incredible Hulk in Cry of the Beast (1979) is a Tie to the Incredible Hulk universe. Of more interest are his nonfiction film studies, including The World of Fantasy Films (1980), For One Week Only: The World of Exploitation Films (1983) and S-F 2: A Pictorial History of Science Fiction Films from "Rollerball" to "Return of the Jedi" (1984; vt The Great Science Fiction Films from "Rollerball" to "Return of the Jedi" 1990).
