David Zindell (born November 28, 1952) is an American author known for science fiction and fantasy epics. He was born in Toledo, Ohio, and resides today in Boulder, Colorado; he received a BA degree in mathematics and minored in anthropology at the University of Colorado at Boulder[1][2]. His first published story was "The Dreamer's Sleep" in Fantasy Book in 1984; his novelette 'Shanidar' , which formed the core of his first novel "Neverness", won the Writers of the Future Contest in 1985.[3] He was nominated for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer in 1986. John Clute writes that the author of "Neverness" is "romantic, ambitious, and skilled."[4], and Gene Wolfe, who is connected with Zindell in a way Wolfe himself was with Jack Vance, described Zindell as "...one of the finest talents to appear since Kim Stanley Robinson and William Gibson - perhaps the finest."[5].

In the series started by "Neverness", David Zindell probes the nature of future humanity in "an extremely ambitious tale...The young protagonist has all the necessary complexity and drivenness to occupy centre-stage 'cosmogony opera'."[3] His fantasy series, The Ea Cycle has as a theme the evolution of consciousness, through the MO of sword-and-sorcery.
