Melvin Eisenstadt graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Mechanical Engineering way back in 1952. After a six month stint as an engineer in an oil refinery, his ROTC caught up with him and he became a communications officer in the Air Force for two years. During his second year, he was in charge of the group that provided electric power for a radar squadron in Korea.

After being discharged, he obtained a PhD and pursued careers in aerospace engineering and academia. Then he enrolled in Law school at the U. of New Mexico, received his law degree land passed the bar. In addition to practicing law, he spent ten years as the part-time municipal judge of Corrales, New Mexico. Finally he retired to write fiction and make jewelry from semi-precious stones and silver.


Navajo Afterglow, Creative Arts Book Co., Berkeley, CA, Copyright 2000. Unfortunately, the publisher went broke. I have copies and will gladly sell them for $16 each. The story is about two Navajo uranium miners who contracted lung cancer because of what the feds didn't do and they took some revenge--good revenge. It falls somewhere between action-adventure and a historical novel. The time frame is 1950 to 1970.

Noah's Millennium, PublishAmerica, Frederick, MD, Copyright 2005. This can be ordered from any local bookstore, or can be obtained from or Barnes and The novel concerns Global Warming, and illustrates what will happen if we don't start solving the problem. It is action-adventure and takes place from 2050 to 2090. It is not science fiction.

The Dynamite Campaign, PublishAmerica, Frederick, MD, will be out in the latter part of 2006. This novel is about a political campaign in which a man blows up a building and is elected to Congress, all in a very logical way, of course.

Introduction to Mechanical Properties of Materials, Macmillan Co., 1971. This is an engineering textbook and not of interest to reading groups(usually).

I've also got a bunch of academic type papers, both engineering and law,covering, among other things, solar energy and legal problems of solar energy.
