About the Author

Nicholas Meyer is a screenwriter, producer, author and director, most known for his bestselling novel The Seven-Per-Cent Solution, and for directing the films Time After Time, two of the Star Trek feature film series, and The Day After. He was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay. He has also been nominated for a Satellite Award and three Emmy Awards, and has won four Saturn Awards.


Academy Award-nominated screenwriter and writer and/or director of Star Trek movies II (The Wrath of Khan), IV (The Voyage Home), and VI (The Undiscovered Country), Meyer delivers a graceful and self-reflective memoir. Unlike Julia Phillips's acerbic You'll Never Eat Lunch in This Town Again, Meyer's account of his 40 years in Hollywood testifies to the industry's generosity. He traces the arc of his creative progression from university newspaper film critic through his Seven-Per-Cent Solution breakthrough to Star Trek and later projects. Verdict Laden with anecdotes and insightful commentary, Meyer's story is far more than the obligatory addition to the Star Trek canon. Meyer is smart and funny, and he excels at making meaningful connections between his art and life. A rich and textured story that will endear itself to film fans and Trekkies.-Barry Miller, Austin P.L., TX Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

"Essential reading for any Star Trek and movie fan." "An engaging read that's all the better for his insights into directing The Day After... Meyer also writes about adapting his best-selling novel The Seven-Per-Cent Solution, for which he was Oscar-nominated in 1977, and making his directorial debut with 1979's Time After Time."--The Gazette (Montreal)
