On August 20, 2013, in Podcast, by Patrick Hester

PattersonIn the 157th episode of the Functional Nerds podcast, Patrick Hester and John Anealio welcome back author Chris F. Holm to talk about stuff and probably get Patrick in loads of trouble.  Seriously.  He’s screwed at this point.  Yup.  Screwed.  Sigh.

About Chris:

Chris F. Holm was born in Syracuse, New York, the grandson of a cop who passed along his passion for crime fiction. His work has appeared 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 an Anthony Award nominee, a Derringer Award finalist, and a Spinetingler Award winner. His Collector novels, published by Angry Robot books, recast the battle between heaven and hell as Golden Era crime pulp. He lives on the coast of Maine with his lovely wife and a noisy, noisy cat.

  1. A really good and detailed discussion, with opposing and interestingly put viewpoints, guys.

    I admit a part of me is still chasing a Hugo nomination. Just a nomination would be enough, but I should accept that its never going to happen, and move on.

    And I loved the Harrison medley closing out, Patrick. 🙂

  2. And I do need to try Chris’ novels…

  3. I’ve his first book sitting next to me waiting to be read after the floor to ceiling pile is done away with. The book has received a lot of praise – I hope it lives up to it because over the last year, books that have received a lot of praise on various blogs, for me, have turned out to be utter rubbish.
