Chris Holm



Chris F. Holm was born in Syracuse, New York to a mother from a cop family and a father from a long line of fantasy and sci-fi geeks. He wrote his first story at the age of six. It got him sent to the principal's office. Since then, his work has fared better, appearing in such publications as Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, Needle: A Magazine of Noir, and THE BEST AMERICAN MYSTERY STORIES 2011. He's been longlisted for a Stoker Award and nominated for an Anthony, a couple Derringers, a Silver Falchion, a pair of Spinetinglers, and a handful of House of Crime and Mystery Readers' Choice Awards, even racking up some wins along the way. His Collector novels recast the battle between heaven and hell as old-fashioned crime pulp. Chris lives on the coast of Maine with his lovely wife, writer and reviewer Katrina Niidas Holm. No, she hasn't reviewed his books.

Chris Holm recommends

Marshall Conrad (2014)
Sean Cummings
"Sean Cummings is a member of the dark fantastic. His writing brims with soul, guts, and a dark wit sharp enough to draw blood."

Riot Load (2015)
Bryon Quertermous
"A breakneck tale that manages to both send up and pay homage to the tropes of the crime drama."
