He is the recipient of the Hal Clement Young Adult Award for Science Fiction and has been on the Hugo ballot twice and the Nebula ballot once for his short fiction, but his favorite distinction was being listed among the American Library Association’s Top 100 Banned Books of 1990–1999. “Jumper was right there at number 94 between Stephen King’s Christine and a nonfiction book on sex education.” Steve lives in New Mexico with writer Laura J.
