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, King of the Undies World, The Underpants Tree, Sanctioned. and the collection of short stories Un-Tall Tales.
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 owner — of Kansai Scene magazine. He has contributed to TalkRadio, the 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.
Chris is also an occasional artist, illustrator, cartoonist. Which brings us to the t-shirts. As most writers do, Chris is now designing and selling t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, phone cases and all sorts of stuff. And you can find the store here.
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.
This site is about fiction, writing, publishing, curiosities, oddities and ends, and distracting things. We hope.
