Steve A. Zuckerman

Steve Zuckerman has had several interesting careers, first as a writer of educational songs and animated "letter commercials" for Sesame Street, Children’s Television Workshop. That led to a long career as a freelance music composer (Most notable work was a toss-up between "Spawn of the Slithis" and "Winnie the Pooh and a day for Eyeore"), which he pursued simultaneously along with a career in advertising. As a jingle and copywriter he was responsible for unleashing "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and "The Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers onto several generations of unsuspecting children, and has written over 500 television commercials. As an orchestrator he has had quite a diverse array of credits. In addition to several seasons of Hercules and Xena, he served as part of the "Futurama" staff for the entire run on Fox (2 seasons) and has orchestrated several popular video games such as "Myst IV", "Myst V", "Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb" along with many others. He has also orchestrated many feature films. Most recently, he has fancied himself as a writer of fiction.

Titles Available from Steve A. Zuckerman



Djinn and Tonnick is a story about magic, technology, cynicism and love, though not necessarily in that order. A wisecracking, world-weary PI ends up working with a 4000 year old Genie to search for a dangerous ancient artifact. They both find out that they need one another, not only to get the job done, but perhaps to get on with their lives.

The end of a day disastrous. The end of a cataclysmic century. The end of a fateful era. The falling apart of a fragile relationship. The fall of a fractured empire. The demise of a deal demonic. Plans gone awry. Your final fight for that last breath. "Aaaaaaaagh...." Okay, how poetic can a last gasp be?

As we launch into this sixth book of the TWISTED TAILS anthology series, I am reminded of Michael Crichton’s debut novel, THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN. Why? Because his first and quite likely his best published novel gave us a look at the possible and horrendous result of the introduction into our happy little home of an unknown biological entity from out there somewhere. Before we go on, some clarification is needed here. Although he is best-known for revived dinosaurs, ANDROMEDA STRAIN was his first published book under his own name ([JOHN] MICHAEL CRICHTON). Published in 1969, Crichton was still in medical school and was in his early twenties. Amazing.
