NEWARK, N.J. - How's this for an eclectic resume? John J. Myers, archbishop of Newark and co-author of "Space Vulture."
Myers, the 65-year-old conservative spiritual leader of 1.3 million Roman Catholics, achieved every aspiring author's dream by landing a book contract. He co-wrote a science-fiction novel with longtime friend and author Gary K. Wolf, creator of the "Roger Rabbit" cartoon character.
Wolf, who has three science-fiction novels to his name, said the book is a fast-paced intergalactic tale about a heroic marshal and a con man who team up with a widow and her two children to fight Space Vulture, the "most villainous marauder in the cosmos."
Wolf and the archbishop will split the money for the 400-page book, which is scheduled to be published by Tom Doherty Associates later this year or early in 2008. The total deal is in the low six figures, said Moshe Feder, the book's editor.
