Meet the Author

Howard V. Hendrix’s first four published novels appeared from Ace Books (Penguin Putnam): Lightpaths (1997), Standing Wave (1998), Better Angels (1999), and Empty Cities of the Full Moon (2001). His fifth novel, The Labyrinth Key, appeared from Ballantine Del Rey in April 2004. His sixth novel, Spears of God, was published by Del Rey in December 2006.

His most widely available works of shorter science fiction can be found in his “double” short story collection Human in the Circuit/Depth of Perception (Borgo Press 2010), Möbius Highway (Scorpius Digital Books, 2001), the Full Spectrum original anthology series, Vols. 1, 4, and 5 (Bantam Books), and in The Outer Limits, Volume 1 (Prima).

He has also published numerous poems, political essays, book reviews, and works of literary criticism, including his book-length study of apocalyptic elements in English literature from Langland to Milton, The Ecstasy of Catastrophe (1990). An avid gardener, his book on landscape irrigation, Reliable Rain (co-authored with Stuart Straw), appeared in March 1998 from Taunton Press.

His degrees range from a B.S. in Biology to an M.A. and Ph.D. in English Literature. He and his wife Laurel both teach at California State University, Fresno, and live near Shaver Lake, California, where they enjoy backpacking and snowshoeing in the Sierra Nevada.
