What Hollywood Taught Me about Prose Fiction

by Steven Gould

Steven Gould is the author of Jumper, Wildside, Helm, Blind Waves, Reflex, Jumper: Griffin’s Story, 7th Sigma, Impulse, and Exo, as well as short fiction published in numerous magazines and anthologies.

 Jumper was made into a 2008 feature film with Samuel L. Jackson, Jamie Bell, Rachel Bilson, and Hayden Christensen. In 2013 Steve was hired to help develop four movie sequels to James Cameron’s Avatar, as well as write five novels based on the films. Impulse is currently being made into a TV pilot for YouTube Red

The recipient of the Hal Clement YA Award for SF, Steve has been a Hugo, Nebula, Prometheus, and Compton Crook finalist, but his favorite distinction was being on the ALA’s list of Top 100 Banned Books 1990-1999. Right there at #94 between Steven King’s Christine and a non-fiction book on sex education. Then Harry Potter came along and bumped him off the bottom of the  list.
