Christopher C. Fuchs

I’m Chris, author of the Earthpillar world of books and short stories (half-tales, I call them), which are set on an Earth that evolved differently. New continents and seas. Dozens of distinct societies. Materials like some metals have alternative properties. And technologies sometimes develop sooner. The world of Earthpillar spans from prehistory to the steam age, but all are connected in some way.

I call my writing “epic adventure” because it has flavors of epic fantasy, action & adventure, historical fiction, and steampunk, but lacks magic. I enjoy blending adventure and political intrigue, fictional continents and materials, and customized medieval and early modern technology.

I like to describe of my writing style with these comparisons:

  • the depth and detail of Tolkien, but with persons of morally gray persuasion;
  • the swashbuckling adventure and old-world language of Alexander Dumas;
  • the realism of Guy Gavriel Kay;
  • and the political intrigue of George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones, but with less graphic bloodletting.

Indeed, Kirkus Reviews and another reviewer have compared my writing to Game of Thrones. Another compared it to Terry Pratchett's Discworld.

As you’ll see on my Goodreads bookshelf, my personal interests are broad, from medieval history and philosophy, to astronomy and particle physics. I take an interdisciplinary approach to writing that is influenced by these topics and extensive travel, degrees in history and political science, and a touch of engineering experience.

As the owner of Loremark Publishing, I work with freelance editors, proofreaders, and illustrators to bring my novels and other writings to life. I opted for this middle route between traditional and self publishing because I wanted to ensure high quality books but also retain full control of my writing career. And now, after about a decade of writing and editing, I’m concluding a “rapid release” of three novels during autumn/winter 2019-2020. Some half-tales are already available, and I have draft and concept material for much more!

This is my piece of the ‘net, so look around, explore, and immerse yourself.
