Bob Proehl is the author of the debut novel, "A Hundred Thousand Worlds" (Viking 2016). Publisher's Weekly said, "Proehl lovingly illustrates the world of fan culture in this debut novel, presenting an accessible story with plenty of insider shout-outs for the true nerds," and Eleanor Henderson (author of "Ten Thousand Saints") called the book "A Kavalier & Clay for the Comic-Con age...a bighearted, inventive, exuberant debut." Bob is a 2012 New York Foundation for the Arts Fellow in Fiction, and his writing has appeared in American Short Fiction, Stone Canoe, and the 33 1/3 book series. Born in Buffalo, he now lives in Ithaca, NY.
