Working name of US author William Gregory Cox (1959-    ), who began to publish work of genre interest with "Empty Screen Lament" for Fantasy Book, May 1983. Most of his fiction comprises Ties to various comics characters; they include Iron Man, beginning with Iron Man: The Armor Trap (1995), and X-Men & Avengers, beginning with X-Men & the Avengers: Gamma Quest, Book 1: Lost and Found (1999), both Marvel Comics franchises, as well as a Daredevil film tie, Daredevil (2003); he has also contributed to the various domains of the Star Trek universe [for titles see Checklist below] and more recently has written several novelizations of films set in the DC Comics universe [again see Checklist below]. Despite this ample productivity in these fields, Cox is perhaps as well known for The Transylvanian Library: A Consumer's Guide to Vampire Fiction (1993) (see Vampires), which is well-researched and judicious; it is not a Tie.

In 2018 Cox received the Grandmaster Scribe Award for career achievement in media Ties. [JC]
