Script error

Peter “Stoney” Emshwiller (born Peter Robert Emshwiller, February 5, 1959) is a novelist, artist, editor, filmmaker, and actor.

He was born in Levittown, New York. His father, Ed Emshwiller, was a noted visual artist, and his mother Carol Emshwiller, an award-winning author.[1] Peter graduated from MacArthur High School in 1977 and from Sarah Lawrence College in 1982. Peter married in 1991 and he and his wife Margaret (née McGlynn) have two children. His work has appeared under his own name as well as P.R. Emshwiller, Stoney Emshwiller, Peter McGlynn, Stoney McGuinn, McGuinn Stoney, and Peter Roberts.

Writing & Editing

Peter Emshwiller was Managing Editor of both The Twilight Zone Magazine [2] and Night Cry Magazine from 1985 to 1989. [3]

In 1991 his Nebula Award-Nominated science fiction novel, The Host, was published by Bantam Books. [4] In 1992, its sequel, Short Blade, was released (also by Bantam). Both works have repeatedly been optioned as feature films since they were published (notably by Jerry Bruckheimer from 2004 through 2007), but never made into movies.

Peter’s humorous poetry appears regularly in issues of Asinine Poetry[5] and he has had non fiction articles published in many magazines including The Writer, The New York Obverver, Locus, and The Long Island Tribune. [6] In 2008 he co-wrote the screenplay for As Advertised, a sitcom pilot.

Mr. Emshwiller is represented by Chris Lotts at The Vicinanza Literary Agency for novels and, for screenwriting, Vince Gerardis of Created By.


Performing under the name Stoney Emshwiller, Peter has been acting since he was a child. He has appeared in numerous stage productions in both New York (off Broadway) and Los Angeles, as well as in films and on TV.[7] From 1988 to 1991 he sang with the 12 person choral ensemble The Euterpeans, including performing a concert at Carnegie Recital Hall.

In 2004 he signed with the William Morris Agency as a voiceover actor. In 2008 he moved to AKA for his voiceover representation and The Pinnacle Agency for commercials. Much of his current voice work is for radio advertisements and video games.

In 2005 Peter co-founded DANGERdanger, a comedy improv troupe which performs at such venues as iO West[8], The Westside Eclectic, and Second City Los Angeles. [9]


In 1985, Peter’s oil paintings were exhibited in a show at 380 Gallery in Greenwich Village, NYC. Since then his art has been sold to private collectors and his painting, illustrations, and cartoons have been published in various magazines, including Gallery Magazine, Mongrel Literary Journal, and Twilight Zone Magazine.[10]

His artwork has also appeared in movies such as Star Kid, The Empty Mirror, Hellraiser: Bloodline, Indictment: The McMartin Trial, as well as episodes of Maybe It's Me (TV series), The George Lopez Show, Arli$$, and many other film and TV projects.

He also worked for many years (1992 – 2004) as a set dresser, lead man, set decorator, and art director for movies and television.[11]
