About Christopher Blankley

Seattle is my home and the backdrop of many of my books. I am not a detective, or a zombie, or living in an alternate version of the 21st Century, so my life and my books pretty much just overlap with the Seattle thing. If you like detectives, zombies, alternate histories, even Seattle, you might like my books. I do. I like you. There, I said it.

I’ve written over a dozen books, including the aforementioned ones about detectives and zombies and alternate histories. Did I mention Seattle? Seattle's in some of them, too.

Review by: Robert Arias on May 23, 2012 :
I really enjoyed the adventures of Beanie (the narrator), Flaky, and Mitty in this book. Once you accept the alternate history (global overheating discovered in the 1930s, some different affects of WWII, establishment of Corporatist State in the US), the plot follows logically. You really begin to care about these guys as the try to stick their fingers into the eye of the Concession in an alternative (and depressing) 1972.
