About the Author

After an adolescence spent in Illinois and Missouri, Christopher Howard set off with the Peace Corps for Mongolia in the late 1990s, before returning home with a severe case of giardiasis. His short story How to Make Millions in the Oil Market, published in McSweeney's and inspired by his time abroad, was nominated for the 2008 National Magazine Award in Fiction. Along with Jodi Picoult, he was one of two authors selected to provide a short story for the launch of Amazon Singles in January 2011. Howard lives in Illinois.

Reviews

"In these six pieces that range from the massacre of the Illini to Charles Manson to contemporary Middle East atrocity, Christopher R. Howard begins to fill in the details of the dark ethical border territories he began to map in his debut Tea of Ulaanbaatar. Depicting his apocalypses--both the cosmic and the man-made kind--with a rich blend of sardonic wit and ethical outrage, an unflinching eye for sensory nuance both grotesque and sublime, and a lucid prose that suggests a more cosmopolitan Cormac McCarthy, Howard is probably the greatest literary prophet of doom we have working."--Jeanne Thornton, author of The Dream of Doctor Bantam
