Whitley Strieber Biography

A former ad man, Whitley Strieber was a writer of horror novels, notably The Hunger and Wolfen, both of which were made into movies in the 1980s. In 1985 Strieber’s Communion, a non-fiction account of his abduction by extra-terrestrials became a best-seller, and his career took an expected turn: he became a UFO expert. Since then Strieber has written several books about his own continuing experiences with aliens, as well as collaborating with radio host Art Bell on a book, The Coming Global Superstorm, and on Bell’s radio show, Dreamland.

Extra credit

Strieber’s autobiographical Communion was also made into a movie, starring Christopher Walken.
