Woodley, Richard

Tagged: Author

(1937-    ) Author, presumably US, active from the 1970s through the 1990s, who has published some twenty novels in various genres – almost all Cinema or Television Ties. Sf examples listed below are chiefly based on the television series The Man from Atlantis (1977-1978). Film ties include novelizations of It's Alive (1974) – somewhat belated, the novel not appearing until 1977 – and of the borderline-sf Volcano (1997), a Disaster story about the Near-Future destruction of Los Angeles (see California) by the eruption of the titular volcano.
