Jeffrey A. Carver is the author of more than a dozen character-driven SF novels, ranging from hard SF grounded in chaos theory (THE CHAOS CHRONICLES) to the more fantastic far-future star travel stories of the Star Rigger universe (STAR RIGGER'S WAY, DRAGONS IN THE STARS, DRAGON RIGGER, and others).
His work has been called "dazzling, thrilling, innovative..." by Kirkus Reviews. Booklist said, "Carver's new yarn has all the ingredients for well-deserved popularity: an original creative angle using the budding science of chaos theory; an intriguing alien life-form in the symbiotic quarx, Charlie; and an irresistibly readable story line." Publishers Weekly said, "Carver masterfully captures the joy of exploration."
Carver was for two seasons the developer and on-air host of SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY WRITING, an interactive television production broadcast to middle school classes across the nation.
A native of Huron, Ohio, Carver has lived in New England since graduating from Brown University in 1971 with a degree in English. He has been a high school wrestler, a scuba diving instructor, a quahog diver, a UPS sorter, a word-processing consultant, a private pilot, and a stay-at-home dad. He lives with his family in Massachusetts, where he is a member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America and The Authors Guild. His interests include science, religion, nature, underwater exploration, and flying.
