Fahy, Christopher

Tagged: Author

(1937-    ) US author whose first works – like The Compost Heap (1970) – convey in mundane contexts a quiet enragedness that can seem scattershot. After his first story with genre content, "Carnival" for Gallery in August 1980 – assembled with much of his short fiction of fantastic interest in Matinee at the Flame (coll 2006) – most of his later work of interest is Horror, though The Lyssa Syndrome (1990) introduces a focusing sf element in its description of a closed venue – the isolated town typical of horror novels of recent decades – decimated by a mutant strain of rabies. Red Tape (2009) is a Satirical fantasy. [JC]
