Christopher Bunn

Biography

Christopher Bunn (1969-still alive) was born in California to parents of extra-terrestrial origin. After working a long and not-so-illustrious career that did not include a stint as a mule skinner, six months lost at sea on a life raft provisioned only with a crate of bananas, two years as a prize fighter, several shameful terms in Congress, nor a brief time spent in the circus as a lion tamer, he began writing novels in order to chronicle his life and the lives of other people who did not exist. In 2006, he apparently came close to winning the prestigious Shumlo Flemsley Prize for Intergalactic Literary Excellence. As the prize, in addition to a lot of cash, also includes an immediate death sentence from the supreme judiciary of the planet Flurg, Betelgeuse System, he was grateful to have fallen short. Bunn is supposedly considering writing a comic history about the Universe titled Things That Can Be Unplugged & Other Things.
