Bio
Jeff Duntemann has been writing science fiction for professional markets (including Omni, Asimov's SF, and the Orbit and Nova hardcover anthologies) since 1974. All of his fiction may be considered "hard" SF, where the focus is on the future evolution of technology, especially computing and artificial intelligence. In 1981, he placed two short stories on the final Hugo Awards ballot, though he did not go on to win the award itself. His first novel, The Cunning Blood, focusing on the implications of nanotechnology and human freedom, was published in 2005. Mr. Duntemann has worked as a programmer for Xerox Corporation, and was an early proponent of visual computer interfaces. Since the mid-1980s he has worked in technical publishing, writing hundreds of technical articles and serving as editor for publications like PC Tech Journal, PC Techniques, and Visual Developer Magazine. He has numerous technical books to his credit, including Assembly Language Step By Step, The Delphi Programming Explorer, and Jeff Duntemann's Wi-Fi Guide. He was one of the earliest bloggers, and has published his ContraPositive Diary since 1998. His blog and much other material may be found at www.duntemann.com. He lives in Colorado Springs with Carol, his wife of thirty years, and his bichon frise dog Quantum Bit. Jeff Duntemann is available to speak on topics including science fiction, the future of publishing, nanotechnology, and wireless networking. (Honorarium $50 for clubs and non-profit groups; for corporations and industry groups, $200 and up, depending on the topic and the length of the presentation.)
