About Jacob Zimmerman
I'm your classic ADHD Gen Xer. Defense Analyst by training. IT Ops/Cloud Computing architect by profession. Spacenik (and Spacetweep). Sci-fi nutjob since age 6 or so. Private Pilot. In case it wasn't obvious from my first published book here, New Yorker by birth, upbringing and choice. Although I Did My Time in another city for 10 or 15 years, I finally managed to come home several years ago only to find the City had gone on without me, forcing me to go wander and relearn everything I thought I knew.
I've always written fiction to keep myself (relatively) sane. I inflicted my work on my friends, my family, my classmates, my colleagues - then I found other writers on the internet, and could finally avoid having those who knew me in real life run screaming when I started talking about story problems.
The New York Magician started out as a series of shorts and became longer and longer story arcs. It's my own small way of paying homage to the city that raised me, and I'm unbelievably tickled (and flattered) that my recollections and experiences, well stirred with tropes and dreams, are managing to bring fun to folks out there on the Net. Michel isn't finished - a second collection of stories and a unitary novel are on the way!
Spacelore is the result of my deep love of classic sci-fi story collections, and is my homage to those paperbacks which got me through high school and college. It is a collection of my shorts which share the common theme of space travel.

Spacelore is a collection of original science fiction short stories which share the common theme of space travel, with several having horror elements as well. The collection is presented in homage to the single-author short collections of the 1950s-1980s, with settings ranging from the early spaceflight era to the distant future and from Earth to unknown star systems.
