About the Author

For more than thirty years, William Sleator has thrilled readers with his inventive books that blend real science with stories that explore our darkest fears and wishes. His House of Stairs was a groundbreaking book for young adults, and was named one of the best novels of the twentieth century by the Young Adult Library Services Association. Critics call his writing clever and engrossing . . . and just plain fun (Booklist) and gleefully icky (Publishers Weekly). He divides his time between homes in Boston and Thailand."
