Ants Who Took
Away Time, The, 1978
William Kotzwinkle was born November 22, 1938, in Scranton, PA. He
became a writer of both adult and children's books. His writings for children
tend to be straightforward. He feels that much of the writing for children is
patronizing, so in his own writing he tries to respect children and avoid
looking down at them. In his collection of Inspector Mantil Mysteries, for
children, he spoofs Sherlock Holmes with a Mantis detective solving crimes
Holmes style in a world populated entirely by bugs. His novels for adults tend
to be wildly fantastic science-fiction. Critics tend to either love his work or
give it a cold reception. He was received several awards for his writing.
