Whitley Strieber began his writing career with The Wolfen and The Hunger, for which he earned renown as one of the best of the “new wave” of horror writers. Both of these novels were made into films, the latter starring Catherine Deneuve, Susan Sarandon and David Bowie.
     In the mid-1980s Strieber received national attention with the New York Times bestseller Warday (co-authored by James Kunetka), and an award winning young-adult novel, Wolf of Shadows, each depicting the harm our country could suffer in even a “limited” nuclear war.
     He may be best known for the third phase of his career, which began with the 1987 New York Times bestseller, Communion, an auto-biographical account of his experiences with strange alien “visitors” who came to his cabin in the New York countryside.
     Related works include Transformation and Breakthrough as well as fiction informed by his Communion experiences such as Majestic and The Grays.
     He has written several thrillers including Cat Magic and a pair of sequels to The Hunger.
