About Ivan Turner

A child of the movies, I was always consumed by fantastic stories told by others and translated into adventures to be retold by me through the action figure medium. As I grew older, I put the action figures away and moved into the realm of role playing. Though I never outgrew role playing, I certainly don't have the time for it anymore. Since I was eleven years old, I've been pouring almost every ounce of creative energy I have into writing.

I graduated college in 1993 with a degree in computer science. I tried my hand at programming for a couple of years and found it pretty unsatisfying. I later became a partner at a comic book store, where I spent several years. Though it wasn't a financial success, the experience I gained from running the store and the people that I met (many of whom I'm still in touch with today) was priceless. After leaving the store, I settled into a career of teaching. I still teach at a public high school in New York. Ironically, I've picked up computer programming again, which is what I mostly teach.

I've been writing the whole time.

I released my first book electronically in 2010. Forty Leap was a turning point for me in both style and story building. The Book of Revelations, which was written earlier but released later, was sort of a midway point between the writer I was and the writer I've become. I experimented with a very odd style and a story that employed diverse characters and controversial situations.

In September 2010, I released the first installment of Zombies! Zombies! has been a tremendous success for me that came very close to being made into a television series. Since Zombies!, I have written a five part miniseries called Castes and have been working on developing tabletops games, the first of which, ApocalypZe, was published in early 2014.

Now, 6 years later, a 3rd Zombies! series is due to be released in September of 2016.

Reviews of Black Box by Ivan Turner

I can't believe such excellent book has no reviews yet. Simply breathtaking, inspiring and brilliantly written story, along with the vivid characters - that have some background and motivations for their thoughts, dialogue lines and actions (good example: Mr. Boone). The concept of recursive algorithms of time is a masterpiece on its own. I wish the story was continued. I definitely want to know what will happen after the events of "Black Box" with Ted Beckett and his crew (and mankind). Will they manage to achieve their goals on their new quest? Will the Admiralty let it go? What with those marooned? And what with "the Ghosts"? Perhaps someone will come after Rollins? There's still some good story to be told, for sure. And many time paradoxes to be explored. Regards from Poland!
