Phyllis Eisenstein is an author of science fiction/fantasy short stories and novels. She was born in Chicago in 1946, and has lived there for most of her life. She published her first two works in 1969, the first in collaboration with her husband Alex. She attended the University of Chicago during the 1960s, then returned to study and achieved a degree in anthropology from the University of Illinois in 1981.

In her lifetime, Eisenstein has published six novels and more than three-dozen shorter works in the science fiction, fantasy, and horror genres, as well as a popular nonfiction book on treating arthritis. Her stories have been nominated twice for the Hugo Award, three times for the Nebula Award.

Eisenstein has spent much of her adult life teaching. This started by assisting author Roger Zelazny at the Indiana University Writers Conference in 1977, and later in other workshops and community colleges. For more than fifteen years, she was a member of the part-time faculty of Columbia College Chicago, where she taught courses in fantasy and science fiction writing. In 1999, she received an "Excellence in Teaching" Award from this institution. In 2009, she retired from CCC to devote more time to her professional writing career.

Since 2000, Eisenstein has worked full-time in Chicago's very competitive advertising business where she is currently the executive manager of copy editors at Chicago's largest advertising agency.

Eisenstein's most recent completed novel, The City in Stone, was due to be published by Meisha Merlin Publishing before they went out of business in 2007. Eisenstein has been unable to find another publisher.[1]
