German-born Curt Siodmak is perhaps best known for his cult classic sci-fi and horror movies, such as The Wolf Man and Son of Dracula. This outstanding writer, one of the founding members of the Writers Guild of America, has also written 26 novels, in English and his native language. Among these, Donovan's Brain was hailed by Stephen King as a unique work that surpassed even the originality of Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke. Not only was it filmed four times, but Orson Welles adapted it into a radio presentation. A gifted writer, screenwriter, and director, Siodmak recently received the Commander's Cross of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany. In his autobiography, he recalls being forced to emigrate to the United States in the 1930s as the Nazis took power in Germany. As a Jewish immigrant, Siodmak's experience of adjusting to his new home amid the turmoil of World War II powerfully affected his perception of freedom and of human dynamics. Wolf Man's Maker describes how this writer, through the genres of sci-fi and horror, created stories which reflected this historical perspective and his search for a truth which affects all of his viewers.
