Author has written 2 stories for Conan series.

Chris L. Adams hails from Dayton, OH circa Spring, 1969.

At about age six his family moved to VA. After only 2 years the countryside beckoned and his family moved to a horse farm in rural West Virginia where his parents yet reside.

The farm afforded plenty of opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors. There an adolescent Chris played Tarzan in the trees, and Huck Finn on the Bluestone River which surrounds his folks’ 80 acre farm.

In the wilds of the farm and surrounds he scaled cliffs, learned to shoot and ride horses and played ‘war’ with his friends where they utilized an arsenal of BB guns to heat up each others derrieres to howls of laughter and cries of pain and wrath.

Growing up without the benefit of cable and satellite he developed a love of reading early on. After devouring many of the classics of both ancient and modern literature he settled into his favorite niche of pulp authors upon discovering authors as H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, Edmond Hamilton, Robert A. Heinlein, Clark Ashton Smith, Abraham Merritt, Nictzin Dyalhis - and of course Edgar Rice Burroughs.

An avid hobbyist, he is a guitarist, having been in an out of many bands since the late 80s. Besides reading, writing and dabbling in guitar he also enjoys collecting historic militaria of mostly the WW2 era.

Chris has been employed with ABB Inc. since 1992, having worked in the Engineering department as a sheet metal designer and later as a layout person. Currently he is a Senior Systems Engineer in IS.

Chris resides in Southern West Virginia with his wife and two children.

Atlas of the Serpent Men - A Tale of Conan of Cimmeria reviews
Leaving the comforts of his kingdom, Conan, King of Aquilonia, embarks on a quest that has virtually no chance of success. With only a single retainer, he must find a relic of the ancient race of serpent men. It's of little moment to him that his own life might be the price of its capture.

Conan and Old Crem reviews
In the hills of far Cimmeria . . . Conan and his band of cutthroats perform a daring night raid in the heady days of their youth when none were safe from the ravages of... Conan the Raider. This whimsical piece of flash fiction doesn't take itself too seriously. Originally posted on SwordsOfREH as A short, lively tale of Conan, Nov 8, 2017.
