Eliot Fintushel

Eliot lives between the horse stables and transmission shops in Santa Rosa, California. He makes his living as a writer and as an itinerant solo performer. He won the US National Endowment for the Arts' Solo Performer Award twice and has performed solo shows at The National Theater, among thousands of venues, including once, for diplomats, under the anti-aircraft gun of a German ship in NY harbor. He has published scores of short stories, mostly in Asimov's Science Fiction. His fiction has appeared in many Best Of anthologies, and his novel "Breakfast With The Ones You Love" is available from Random House. He was a nominee for Nebula and Sturgeon Awards. Says Harlan Ellison: "Eliot Fintushel and his nifty stories have been an ongoing joy for me for years."

Eliot studied Zen for many years with teachers Philip Kapleau and Toni Packer, working on koans at the goad of the stick. He was pictured among "the graduating class" of the Rochester Zen Center in New Age Magazine.
