Joseph F. Pamilia was born in Houston, TX on March 10, 1945. He received his B.A. in English from the University of Houston in 1967, and graduated from the UH School of Journalism in 1970. A reporter, copywriter and typesetter, he began his science fiction writing career in 1971 with the story "Niggertown", which was published as part of the 1971 anthology Black Hands on a White Face. Some of his other stories include "Willowisp" (1974), "Hung Like An Elephant" (with Steven Utley, 1974), "Forever Stand The Stones" (1975), "The Case of James Elmo Freebish" (1976), and "Myth of the Ape God" (1978).
