Book View Cafe Welcomes Jeffrey A. Carver

Jeffrey A. Carver joins Book View Café

Jeff grew up on the Lake Erie shores of Huron, Ohio, but eventually settled in the Boston area, where he lives with his family. Currently he’s writing a new volume in his popular series The Chaos Chronicles. Another of his favorite places to spin tales is his Star Rigger universe; one story in that world, Eternity’s End, was a finalist for the Nebula Award. Among his stand-alone works are The Rapture Effect, and Battlestar Galactica, a novelization of the SciFi Channel’s miniseries. By many accounts, his work is hard science fiction, but his greatest love remains character, story, and a healthy sense of wonder.

As a teacher, Carver once hosted an educational TV series on the writing of SF and fantasy. A course that grew out of that is online, free to all, at writesf.com. In person, he’s taught at MIT, Odyssey, and the New England Young Writer’s Conference; and he is cofounder of the Ultimate SF Writing Workshop, in the Boston area.
