Christopher Harter

Born of Midwestern stock, Chris has lived within the corn-belt most of his life. He founded Pathwise Press and its literary magazine, Bathtub Gin, in 1997. Pathwise has published eleven of the best damned books ever to see the light of day.

He is a librarian by day and is currently compiling an extensive author index to a number of little magazines that originated during the Mimeograph Revolution of the 1960s/70s. After that baby has been put to bed, he will begin work on a series of descriptive bibliographies of that era's small presses.

Chris's poetry has been published in a number of literary magazines for about 10 years. He is currently working on two collections...we'll see if he ever finishes them.
