New Author Spotlight: Chris Holm

New Author Spotlight is a series designed to introduce authors with 3 books or less in the different SF/F subgenres. Today's spotlight shines on Chris F. Holm, who has written numerous short stories, but whose debut novel, Dead Harvest was published by Angry Robot Books earlier this year. Here's the cover copy...

Meet Sam Thornton, Collector of Souls.
Sam's job is to collect the souls of the damned, and ensure their souls are dispatched to the appropriate destination.
But when he's dispatched to collect the soul of a young woman he believes to be innocent of the horrific crime that's doomed her to Hell, he says something no Collector has ever said before.

If you like books about collecting souls, check out these:

  • Black Wings by Christina Henry (Ace)
  • On a Pale Horse by Piers Anthony (Del Rey)
  • Soul Trapper by F. J. Lennon (Atria Books)

Thanks, Jessica, for the mention! I keep meaning to check out the Piers Anthony; Charles Ardai recommended it to me when he so graciously blurbed my book. Guess I oughta pick it up!

Hi Chris,

Glad you liked your spotlight. I've read the first Anthony book in the series, but have to read the rest some time. I've got your book on my tbr pile. Hope to get to it soon.
