Steve Perry.

Steve C. Perry[1] (born August 31, 1947) is an American television writer and science fiction author who wrote the novels Aliens: Earth Hive, Aliens: Nightmare Asylum and Predator: Turnabout. He also co-wrote the novels Aliens: The Female War and Aliens vs. Predator: Prey with his daughter S. D. Perry and wrote the short story Rematch for the anthology Predator: If It Bleeds.

Perry has also written books in the Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Conan the Barbarian universes, as well as all of the Tom Clancy's Net Force series. However, he is perhaps best known for his original Matador series. He is a practitioner of the martial art Silat, which inspired him to create the fictional martial arts Sumito and Teräs Käsi, both of which are essentially fictionalized versions of Silat.



  • As well as his daughter Stephani, Steve Perry has also collaborated with his son Dal on several books.
