Ernest Cline (born March 29, 1972) is the author of Ready Player One and the second upcoming books of the series.


  • Cline's favorite video games are Black Tiger and Battlezone. They inspired him to write Ready Player One and another book, Armada.
  • When asked who would star in the Ready Player One film adaptation, as his “dream cast,” he would actually prefer a cast of unknown actors — with the exception of Wil Wheaton (who is his own character in the book).

  • He participated in a Reddit AMA on July 14th, 2015 via the subreddit /r/books.
