If you are a fan of George Nader, then you would definitely know that he was an author as well. With two books under his belt Nader made quite a name for himself in the literary field. Writing a book was never a part of the plan for George Garfield Nader when he started his acting career.
However, circumstances were such that in the end he was left only with writing to showcase his creativity. George Nader after 15 years of successful acting career found himself unable to work under bright lights. This was the result of a car accident and an eye surgery which rendered him with Glaucoma.
In 1978 Nader wrote his first book ‘Chrome’. The novel was a homosexual science fiction fantasy. Even today, Chrome is a big hit with Nader fandom. The plot revolved around the same sex relationship between a man and robot. The struggles and run scenes were portrayed in a very graphic manner by Nader. The ending of the book was unfortunate with both humanoid and man being banished and cast into space.
Many people say that George Nader came up with this end as a masquerade to his own life. During the time he wrote this book, one of his best friends, Rock Hudson passed away from a complication resulting of AIDS. George who himself was a homosexual never came out in the open during his entire career.
However, after the successful launch of Chrome and the passing away of his dear friend, Nader and his partner Mark Miller released a public statement regarding their homosexuality.
There was another book written by George Nader which was co-authored by Mark Miller. This was called ‘Perils of Paul’. Again written on homosexual lines, ‘Perils of Paul’ was different from ‘Chrome’. It was a collection of real life stories of Miller and Nader from the time of Hollywood. Needless, to say there were many names which were changed to protect privacy. However, the details which Nader and Miller described regarding the homosexual scene in Hollywood were staggering.
The publication as per Nader’s request was to be delayed until after his death, however, in 1999 both Nader and Miller released the book in a quiet self-publishing effort.
