Christopher Rowe's story collection, Telling the Map, will be released by Small Beer Press in July 2017. He will also launch a new middle grade series, the Supernormal Sleuthing Service, co-written with his wife, author Gwenda Bond, that month. He is currently hard at work on Sarah Across America, an unusual fantasy novel about maps and megafauna, among other things. His first novel Sandstorm fulfilled a childhood dream of writing a Dungeons & Dragons novel and was published by Wizards of the Coast (teenage Christopher is beaming, somewhere).
He has also published a couple of dozen stories, and been a finalist for the Hugo, Nebula, World Fantasy and Theodore Sturgeon Awards. His work has been frequently reprinted, translated into a half-dozen languages around the world, and praised by the New York Times Book Review. His story "Another World For Map is Faith" made the long list in the 2007 Best American Short Stories volume, and his early fiction was collected in a chapbook, Bittersweet Creek and Other Stories, by Small Beer Press. His most recent stories are "Jack of Coins" at Tor.com, selected by editor Ellen Datlow, and "Nowhere Fast" in Candlewick's young adult anthology, Steampunk!, edited by Kelly Link and Gavin Grant.
He lives in a hundred-year-old house in Lexington, Kentucky, with wife Gwenda Bond, Hemingway the Cat, Izzy the Dog, and Puck the Dog.
