Stine, Jean Marie

Tagged: Author

Working name of the US writer, born Henry Eugene Stein (1945-    ), whose name was legally changed to Jean Marie Stein and who has published under the surname Stine throughout. Season of the Witch (1968) as Hank Stine interestingly blends sf and erotica in the story of a man biologically transformed into a woman as a punishment for rape and murder, but who eventually finds her/his true role and contentment as a transsexual (see Transgender SF); it was filmed as Memory Run (1996). Other sf novels as Hank Stine are Thrill City; Or, the Dugpa (1969), set in a City devastated by World War Three, and a novelization tied to the Television series The Prisoner, The Prisoner #3: A Day in the Life (1970). Stine was editor of Galaxy Science Fiction for two issues in 1979. She has assembled short fiction as Herstory & Other Science Fiction (coll 2010).

From the 1990s on she has been active as an anthologist, beginning with Reel Future: The Stories that Inspired 16 Classic Science Fiction Movies (anth 1994) with Forrest J Ackerman. One of her several nonfiction books, Ed Wood: The Early Years (2001) is a study of the legendary bad film director Ed Wood, whose Plan 9 from Outer Space (1959) has been loved for generations.
