George Nader began a film career in 1950 and starred in Robot Monster in 1953. In the mid-’70s he was in an automobile accident, damaging an eye which effectively ended his acting career. He turned to writing.

“After damage to his eye made it difficult to endure an acting career, Nader began a career as a writer of science fiction. His groundbreaking 1978 novel Chrome is probably the first science fiction novel to center on a homosexual love affair, and the first to have substantial homosexual erotic scenes.

According to Variety Magazine’s Army Archerd, Nader had completed a book called The Perils of Paul, about the gay community in Hollywood, which he did not want published until after his death.” This book remains was published privately in hardcover in 1999.
