ABOUT STEPHEN WEINSTOCK
For years I had the idea of a novel puzzling out an intricate past life history between a group of souls, but only with the epiphany of using the ancient frame tale structures of The Thousand and One Nights did I receive the inspiration to attempt it. 1001 is an eleven-book series about a qaraq, a group of intertwined souls who share 1001 lifetimes.

PRAISE FOR 1001: THE QARAQ, Book One of The Reincarnation Chronicles
"A love spat between two atomic particles, that tickled me--it could get dangerous!"--Eric Van Lustbader, bestselling author, Jason Bourne, Nicholas Linnear series
"Stephen Weinstock's imagination is fevered, surreal, fantastical. It will take you places you never dreamed you would go." --Barry Jay Kaplan, author, Black Orchid
"The kind of book that keeps you up later than you intended at night!"
"Whether you believe in reincarnation or not, this is a book which will expand your universe."
"It's amazing to have so many different tales within one book - and so much juicy variety."
"Mr. Weinstock delivers passages of exquisite lyric prose that I will go back to read numerous times."
"Where in the name of Heaven did all this come from? It is Symphonic."
In my past life before 1001, I created music for theater companies (Magic Theater, Eureka Theater), choreographers, and dance studios (Merce Cunningham, Martha Graham). My theater works included the experimental sound theater piece Mt. Quad in San Francisco, and the musical Rock and Roy, with writer Barry Jay Kaplan, about the double life of Rock Hudson. I have worked as a musician/teacher on the dance faculties of UC Berkeley, Princeton, Juilliard, and the 'Fame' school, as well as at the NYU Musical Theater Writing Program. By day I still bring dancers to ecstasy with my improvisations, but at night I enter the world of metempsychosis, time-honored storytelling, and worlds ranging from historical fiction to romantic fantasy.
I have published a number of online stories, and now the first two books in the 1001 series are available: The Qaraq, and The Qaraq and the Maya Factor.
