Steven Lyle Jordan

Science Fiction Author, Futurist

Banner 2018

“Ranks up there with the best scifi writers of the past century.”

About Me:

I’ve been a fan of science fiction all my life: My formative years were filled with NASA’s manned space program accomplishments, the science fiction TV and movies, and the environmental movements of the 1960s and 70s.  I developed an early devotion to science and the future, as well as a passion for the technology behind the special effects in my favorite movies and TV shows.

As a writer I was a pioneer of the ebook format, championing it and selling my books online in the 2000s before most readers (or publishers) had even heard of ebooks, gaining a 4.4-star rating on Amazon, and resulting in a New York Times interview for an article on ebook formats.  My novels and the commentary on this blog highlight my interests in technology, humanity, nature and the future.

And I love to talk about science, technology, futurism and SF in books, television and movies.  A lot.  I hope you enjoy my work.

Some say:

“Jordan has several other novels that I’ve read, and I have found them all to demonstrate him to be a diverse and talented author. I look forward to more from this author.”

“You have a true talent for creating a future that can be envisioned…”

“Ranks up there with the best scifi writers of the past century.”

“This guy can tell a tale.”

“I found myself turning the last few pages in the desperate hope that it was not going to end yet.”

“Standing in the glow of Clarke, Pohl and McDevitt…”

“Trust me on this, old Steven Lyle Jordan can tell a story, and in my opinion, that’s what counts.”

“Steven Lyle Jordan can load mercury with a pitchfork.”
