Growing up in the suburbs of Philadelphia had perks: Six (count 'em 6!) TV channels, specialty SciFi & Fantasy shows like Gene London and Dr. Shock, and plenty of paperback books. I've been addicted to reading fantastic stories since eighth grade. There's little better than hunkering down with a good book (or audio book), entering the world of "what-if," and unleashing your imagination and creativity with every turn of the page. I am thrilled to share some my stories and hear your thoughts. Visit me at www.JimSteinBooks.com, and as always, happy reading!
Jim Stein’s hunger for stories transporting the reader to extraordinary realms began under one meager bulb, a towel stuffed beneath his door to avoid parental censure. He huddled with Tolkien, Asimov, and all the greats and unknowns plucked from the drugstore shelves to spin tales of the imagination. After writing short stories in school, two degrees in computer science, and several decades as a Naval officer, Jim has returned to his first passion. He writes speculative fiction advocating the underdog and embracing protagonists with strong moral fiber, often overlaid with supernatural elements and a few dark twists. Jim lives in northwestern Pennsylvania with his wife, Claudia, and his muse, Marley the Great Dane.
