His most famous work, Logan’s Run, was made into a major MGM film and a CBS television series and is now in pre-production as a remake for Warner Brothers. Voted a “Living Legend in Horror/Dark Fantasy,” by the International Horror Guild, Nolan is a two –time winner of the Edgar Allan Poe Special Award.
