cats, Seuss, Lilly, Jupiter, Tesseract, Luna, and Josey. He has a B.A.

"This appearance in Pulp and Dagger marks Chris’s sixteenth published short story; he’s also published stories in magazines with such cool titles as The Ecphorizer, The Agincourt Irregular, and Blue Murder.
"Chris’s influences are as diverse as Lloyd Alexander, Clifford D. Simak, Daniel Pinkwater, John Steinbeck, Kurt Vonnegut, Vladimir Nabokov, Robert A. Heinlein, Bruce Coville, and many others, and, of course, the pulps--before returning to the state of near-poverty that full-time graduate studies and
part-time teaching entails, he was trying to assemble a collection of all 99 issues of STARTLING STORIES.
"Finally, Chris has, as should now be apparent, a great zeal for writing about himself in the third person."
