James Kahn’s storytelling has transcended mediums and thrilled audiences for over 30 years, and he’s just getting started. 
Kahn wrote novelizations of blockbusting films like Poltergeist, Return of the Jedi, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and The Goonies before extending his writing talents to the small screen on shows like
St. Elsewhere, E/R, and Melrose Place
As a singer-songwriter, Kahn released four albums of original material with famed producer David West that include well known players like Gabe Witcher on fiddle, Matt Rollings on piano, and John McFee on pedal steel, among others.  
Kahn's science fiction novels, comprising the New World Trilogy, were recently reissued due to demand and his new thriller novel, Incarnate, is due out at the end of 2014.
