American fantasy and young adult fiction writer whose debut novel Half-Resurrection Blues was published by Penguin Books in the first week of 2015. By the end of January, the production company of Anika Noni Rose had optioned the television and film rights to the novel, in addition to the rights of the following two novels in the series.
In 2018 Older released his first Star Wars novel Last Shot, which serves as a tie-in to Solo: A Star Wars Story. It stars Han Solo and Lando Calrissian and takes place between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens with flashback settings before and after Solo.
In August 2014, Older started a petition to change the World Fantasy Award statuette from a bust of H. P. Lovecraft to one of African-American author Octavia Butler. In November 2015 it was announced that the World Fantasy Award trophy would no longer be modelled on H. P. Lovecraft, following the 2014 campaign that called the author out as an "avowed racist" with "hideous opinions".
