His father, Ed Emshwiller, was a noted visual artist, and his mother Carol Emshwiller, an award-winning author. Emshwiller graduated from MacArthur High School in 1977, attended Sarah Lawrence College (class of 1982), and married Margaret Mayo McGlynn in 1991. 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. Peter Emshwiller was managing editor of both The Twilight Zone Magazine and Night Cry Magazine from 1985 to 1989. In 1991 his Nebula Award-Nominated science fiction novel, The Host, was published by Bantam Books. 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.
