Chris Howard’s Portfolio

Just a creative human with a pen and a paint brush, author of Seaborn (Juno Books, 2008), Salvage (Masque/Prime Books, 2013), Nanowhere (Lykeion, 2005), and a shelf-full of other books. I mostly work in digital, but also in watercolors, ink, charcoals, and other traditional media. I write and illustrate the comic Saltwater Witch and Salvage.  My art has appeared on dozens of book covers, in Shimmer, BuzzyMag, various RPGs, and on the pages of books, blogs, and other interesting places. My short stories and essays have appeared in several magazines and anthologies, including “Lost Dogs and Fireplace Archeology” in Fantasy Magazine and “How to Build Worlds Without Becoming the Minister for Tourism” in Now Write! Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror (Penguin Random House, 2014). My story “The Mermaid Game” appeared in the Paula Guran edited anthology Mermaids and Other Mysteries of the Deep (Prime Books, 2015), and “Hammers and Snails” was a Robert A. Heinlein Centennial Short Fiction Contest winner.
