Chris Page: editor, writer of fiction and non-fiction; expatriate (or exile?); cat person; red wine for blood and cheese in his soul.
He is author of the novels Weed and King of the Undies World, and the collection of short stories imaginatively titled Shorts (ebook) and Un-Tall Tales (paperback), which is all the stories from his ebook Shorts, with a couple of extras.
Chris is a freelance writer who has been living and working in Japan since 1989. From 2001 to 2012 he was the editor — and, for a while, the publisher — of Kansai Scene magazine. He has contributed to BBC World Service, CBC TV News (Canada), The Japan Times, Time Out Kyoto City Guide, The London News Review, Kansai Scene, Tokyo Scene, The Gloucester Citizen, Kansai Time Out and various non-commercial publications and web sites.
What else? Born in Vänersborg, Sweden. Brought up in the UK and went to school (but didn’t pay much attention) at The King’s School, Gloucester. College was at Middlesex Polytechnic (Literature and Philosophy). Then there was a year dossing around in New York and his first and only art exhibition at Downtown Beirut (the bar in NY, not the city in Lebanon). There were just a couple of blurry years in London after that before moving to Osaka. He is currently living in Nara prefecture with his wife, three kids and big, fat black and white cat. And that’s that.
Chris is also an occasional artist, illustrator, cartoonist.
This site is about fiction, writing, publishing, curiosities, oddities and ends, and distracting things. We hope.
