Jeff Duntemann

Jeff Duntemann


Jeff Duntemann has written professionally since 1974, in both science fiction/fantasy and technical nonfiction. His early work in both areas reflects his experience as a programmer for Xerox in the 1970s and 1980s. His stories have appeared in Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine, Omni, the Orbit and Nova anthology series, and several standalone print anthologies. Two of his short stories have appeared on the final Hugo Awards ballot.

On the nonfiction side, he has worked as a technical editor for Ziff-Davis Publishing and Borland International, launched and edited two print magazines for programmers, and has twenty technical books to his credit, including the bestselling Assembly Language Step By Step. He wrote the "Structured Programming" column in Dr. Dobb's Journal for four years, and published technical articles in many magazines. He co-founded and ran editorial for The Coriolis Group, which became Arizona's largest book publisher in 1998.

After retiring from technical publishing, Jeff resumed his career as an indie SF author. Most of his fiction involves strong AI. His first novel, The Cunning Blood, appeared in hardcover from ISFiC Press in 2005. All his subsequent titles are available through Kindle, in both ebook and print editions. Outside of writing and publishing, Jeff's interests include programming, electronics, amateur radio (callsign K7JPD), telescopes, history, psychology, and kites. Jeff lives in Scottsdale, Arizona with his wife Carol and several bichon frise dogs.
