Description Edit | History

William H. Keith, Jr. (born August 8, 1950) is an author from Western Pennsylvania who has written the six-book Warstrider series. During the Vietnam era, he served in the U.S. Navy as a hospital corpsman.

From his personal website (updated 15 May 2009):

I am an SF and military writer with eighty-three published books so far, plus numerous short stories, games, and gaming modules, for a total—so far—of 135 published titles. If you had one copy of each, you'd have about 35,000 pages' worth, and if you bought them all at list price you'd have spent over a thousand dollars by now. And then there's the books now at the publishers' offices, one currently being written, four more under contract, and a couple more ideas percolating around that will become books in due time.

William Keith wrote for and illustrated RPG's from 1979 to 1987. Since then he has mostly written fiction and during the 1990's even some video game guide books.

William is the brother of fellow game designer and author J. Andrew Keith.
