F. Paul Wilson was born just across the Hudson River from Manhattan in Jersey City, New Jersey on May 17 in the year 1946. As Wilson was growing up, he was always interested in reading both novels and comic books. He was also interested in watching horror and science fiction movies and is quoted as saying that when he was young he once watched the movie version of King Kong more than ten times in one week.

Wilson did not plan to be an author at first. After attending Georgetown University and graduating in 1968, F. Paul Wilson sold his first piece of writing while he was attending Kirkwood College of Osteopathic Medicine. He has managed to juggle these two careers for all of his adult life and is still working today as a part-time physician.

Paul’s first published piece was a short story series called “LaNague Series” in Analog in 1971. There were four different stories in the series: “Higher Centers”, “The Man with the Anteater”, “Ratman” and “Wheels within Wheels”. He also had published a comic strip and another short story called “The Cleaning Machine” that same year.

Throughout the 1970s, Wilson was mostly known as a science fiction writer. His first venture into novels was in 1976 with Healer. He has now written more than forty books and over one hundred different short stories. He has gone past simply writing within the genre of science fiction and became known as one of the best horror writers of the 1980s when he released The Keep in 1981.

Today, it seems that there are no genres that Wilson has not at least dipped his writing pen into over the years. He is known for writing collaborations and even wrote the book Virgin with his wife in 1996, which was originally published under her maiden name of Mary Elizabeth Murphy. It has since been rereleased under Wilson’s name, as it turns out he did nearly all of the writing on his own.

F. Paul Wilson is best known for his Repairman Jack series. When he first wrote about this vigilante antihero, he was not planning to commit to turning this into a group of novels. The first Repairman Jack novel, The Tomb was released in 1984 and Wilson could not be pursued to write another novel about the character until over a decade later when he released Legacies in 1998. There were several short stories about Jack written and released between those years.

Since that time, Wilson has almost released a new Repairman Jack novel every year. Meanwhile, he continues to produce other writing work and has also won several awards. He has won the Prometheus Award twice, with the first time being in the year 1979 for Wheels Within Wheels and the second time in the year 2004 for his novel Sims. The short story “Aftershock” gave him a Bram Stoker Award in 1999 and he was given the Lifetime Achievement Bram Stoker Award for all of his work in the horror field. F. Paul Wilson is even included in the 50th Anniversary edition of the Who’s Who in America.

Currently, F Paul Wilson is continuing to produce new work from his home on the Jersey Shore in New Jersey. He continues to practice medicine, as he sees it as an opportunity to connect with people on a daily basis.

Repairman Jack Series

The Repairman Jack Series currently includes fifteen novels featuring the adult Jack, three young adult novels with a younger version of the character and Jack has been featured in seven different short stories. There is also a new prequel series, which started in 2012, which currently has three volumes of new Repairman Jack tales.

The story of Repairman Jack started with the book The Tomb. This follows Jack, who is more interested in repairing people’s lives than appliances, as he tracks down the thief of a cursed necklace, which holds the power to release Bengali demons. Jack’s girlfriend, Gia’s daughter Vicky gets caught up in the adventure and Jack must find the necklace in time to save her.

In Legacies, Jack’s newest client is a doctor, Dr. Alicia Clayton, who works with AIDS patients. She is trying to destroy her haunted house but everyone who tries turns up mysteriously dead. There is a secret within the house that Alicia’s brother is trying to reveal and Jack must help her keep it hidden.

F Paul Wilson in Film and Television

F Paul Wilson’s novel The Keep was the first of his long-form works to be adapted for the screen. The film was written and directed by Michael Mann and was released in 1983 starring Gabriel Byrne, Scott Glenn and Ian McKellen. F Paul Wilson did not believe that the film was a success. He saw it as visually appealing but saw something lost in the story as it was adapted for film.

Midnight Mass was made in 2003 with Wilson created as one of the screenwriters along with director Tony Mandile. This was released directly to video and starred Julie Cornish and Elizabeth Vance.

Some of F Paul Wilson’s short stories have also make their way onto the small screen and film. Three short films were compiled together into a video called Others. It includes short film versions of the short stories “Foet”, “Traps” and “Lipidlegin”. These were all created separately be different directors and compiled together at a later date.

For television, “Glim Glim” was an original teleplay written by Wilson for the television show “Monsters”. It was aired in the first series of the show and was on television in 1989. His story “Menage a Trois” was adapted for an episode of show “The Hunger” in 1994 and “Pelts” was made into an episode of “Masters of Horror” in 2006. This is the only one of his television adaptations that is now available on DVD.

The saga of turning The Repairman Jack Series into a film has been going on for several years. The rights were recently purchased by Beacon Films and Disney and Buena Vista have been brought on as distributors. It looks like this is going to made into a franchise series in the next few years. This is not surprising, as Wilson’s novels have sold more than six million copies over the years.
