Stan L. Zieve, a television newsfilm cameraman from Minneapolis, won national awards for story telling with his camera.
As his camera recorded births and deaths, disasters and happiness, presidents and paupers, sunspots and eclipses and love and hate, his brain was busy too, remembering it all.
Stan's imagination soared when using a computer keyboard, as he continued telling stories with “The Sending Booth”, a fascinating, open-ended, science fiction saga set 100 years into the future.
In the book, Stan's imagination created temperature controlled clothing, domed cities, robotic mannequins with human minds, wheeless vehicles swooping over growing pathways and the mother-of-all body-reclaiming searches to end all searches.
Now retired after 37 years with NBC News, Stan and his wife Felice, along with most of the offspring, reside in Southern California, where he no longer has to shovel any snow.
