Welcome to my webpage!

My first published story, "TeleAbsence," which appeared in the July 1995 issue of Analog, was nominated for the Hugo Award and was chosen by the readers of Analog as the best short story published by the magazine in 1995. Two years later, I won the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer at the 1997 World Science Fiction Convention, LoneStarCon2.

I've also received Hugo nominations for "Broken Symmetry," "Cosmic Corkscrew," "Kaddish for the Last Survivor," "Spaceships," "Paying It Forward", "Decisions," "Time Ablaze," "Seventy-Five Years," and "TelePresence"; a Nebula and Sturgeon nomination for my novella "Reality Check"; and Nebula nominations for "Kaddish for the Last Survivor" and "I Remember the Future."

From 1998 to 2000, I somehow found the time to serve as Secretary of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. This webpage gives you a little introduction to my work.

Coming in August 2023, from Fantastic Books, my new anthology, Jewish Futures, with stories by Harry Turtledove, Esther Friesner, E.M. Ben Shaul, Shane Tourtellotte, and many others!
