Creator: William H. Keith, Jr.
William H. Keith, Jr. (born 1950) is a prolific American fiction author with a particular taste for Science Fiction and Military Fiction (often both). He served in the United States Navy as a hospital corpsman during The Vietnam War and then worked for several years for game companies including FASA and Games Designers Workshop (the creators of Traveller and Twilight 2000 among others) as an artist and writer before turning to writing full-time. He's averaged one or two books a year since 1986 and has done both Expanded Universe material and his own original settings.

He's written under a few pseudonyms and house names, most recently (starting in 1998) Ian Douglas. Many of his older works are currently out-of-print, but may be found used.
