Alexander Jablokov, a prolific American science fiction writer, was born on December 29, 1956, in Russia. He later immigrated to the United States, where he became known for his imaginative and intellectually rich contributions to the science fiction genre.

He emigrated to the United States in 1968, a period marked by significant cultural and political shifts. Educated at Harvard University, Jablokov studied physics and astronomy, but his passion for writing eventually led him to pursue a career in literature. He earned an M.A. in Creative Writing from Johns Hopkins University.

His literary career took flight with the publication of his first novel, Carve the Sky, in 1991.

His novels, including Nimbus (1993), River of Dust (1996), and Deepdrive (1998), showcase his ability to blend speculative elements with deep character development.

In addition to novels, Jablokov has contributed numerous short stories to science fiction magazines and anthologies. His short fiction has been recognized with award nominations, and his stories frequently explore unconventional concepts and ideas within the science fiction landscape.

Beyond his accomplishments as a writer, Jablokov has also been involved in the broader science fiction community. He has served on the Board of Directors of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA), contributing to the advocacy and support of fellow writers in the genre.
