About the Journalist

Paul Fischer is an author, screenwriter, and filmmaker. He has written about subjects as varied as the North Korean community in London’s suburbs, the state of coal mining in British Columbia during the COVID pandemic, changing beer culture on Canada’s West Coast — and even the best and worst kisses in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Paul’s work has appeared in international publications including The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, The Independent (UK), The Narwhal, and Bright Wall/Dark Room. His first nonfiction book, A Kim Jong-Il Production, was chosen as one of the best books of 2015 by NPR, Amazon, and Library Journal, and was nominated for a Crime Writers Association award. His second, The Man Who Invented Motion Pictures, will be released in the spring of 2022. Born in Saudi Arabia and raised in France, Paul now lives in the United Kingdom.
