Chris is the author of Severance (Apex 2014) and Thaw (Apex 2016).

Three vitally important things about Chris:
  • He is a columnist and editor at His articles are a broad mix of short fiction, pop culture over-analysis, and spectacularly bad advice.
  • He's also a full time video game writer, working at Stardock, where he's worked on a variety of games including Sorcerer King, Galactic Civilizations III, Ashes of the Singularity, and the upcoming Star Control reboot.
  • In all of his novels and works, he has carefully buried clues to a hidden treasure, there to be uncovered by a reader intelligent and dedicated enough to buy multiple copies of each.

Chris's five essential books:
  1. The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams
  2. John Dies At The End by David Wong
  3. Use Of Weapons by Iain M Banks
  4. Anathem by Neal Stephenson
  5. Pale Fire by Vladimir Nabokov
