Chris's Picks 2018

A recent transplant to Richmond, Chris is a triplet who loves Philadelphia sports and cheesesteaks just about as much as he loves science fiction and fantasy. After graduating from Catholic University, he spent the last 5 years in professional ministry and now is taking this season to call Richmond home. When he's not moonlighting as a barista or reading, he's likely listening to music or hanging out at a local comic book store, where his love for Magic the Gathering and nerdiness, in general, comes out front and center.

Chris and Andi started at the same time at Fountain and are nearing their first anniversaries!  Chris's picks this year reflect his deep love of fantasy, but also his willingness to stretch into unfamiliar genres.  We love this! 

Chris may or may not have been the bookseller to completely humiliate himself ugly-crying on a plane while reading Anatomy of a Miracle.  

Man.  We told you not to read it on the plane!
