• Chris is a freelance writer, editor and graphic artist with over two decades of experience in the publishing industry, working primarily for newspapers and comic book publishers. A professional writer since 1990, he has scripted numerous independent comic books in a variety of genres, including Leonard Nimoy’s Primortals, Shadow House, The Night Driver, Kolchak the Night Stalker, the Spinetingler Award-winning Femme Noir, and the critically-acclaimed crime thriller, Gravedigger: The Scavengers.
He has also authored a handful of published short stories, including contributions to Moonstone Books’ The Spider Chronicles, The Captain Midnight Chronicles and Werewolves, Dead Moon Rising. He currently maintains several blogs and websites, including the popular 1970’s sci-fi nostalgia blog, Space: 1970 and the DVD Late Show review site.
His taste in entertainment clearly peaked when he was about 15, which certainly explains his embarrassing obsession with James Bond, hardboiled crime fiction, comic books, paperback pulps, space opera, Universal/Hammer/Toho Monsters, sword & sorcery sagas, old genre TV shows and vintage B-movies.
