ORDER THE HEAVENS RISE NOW
By the age of 30, Christopher Rice had published four New York Times bestselling thrillers, received a Lambda Literary Award and been declared one of People Magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive. His first novel, A Density of Souls, was published when he was just 22. The controversial bestseller was greeted with a landslide of media attention, much of it due the fact that Rice’s mother is a legendary vampire chronicler who shares his last name. He served as a contributing columnist to The Advocate for many years and his additional criticisms and witticisms have been featured in The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Review of Books, Salon.com and his own Facebook page, which currently hails over 70,000 subscribers. The Hetrick Martin Institute honored Rice with an Emery Award for his activism on behalf of LGBT youth, and the New York City Public Advocate’s Office invited him to be their keynote speaker during their annual Gay Pride celebration. The members of the InsightOut Book Club selected his novel Blind Fall as one of the best novels of 2008, and his noir thriller Light Before Day was hailed as a “book of the year” by mega-best selling thriller novelist (and Jack Reacher creator), Lee Child. Gallery Books, a division of Simon & Schuster will be publishing The Heavens Rise, his latest novel and his first work of supernatural suspense, in 2013. He recently served on the board of directors of the West Hollywood Library Fund, which was instrumental in securing private funds to build a brand new state-of-the-art library in the heart of the city he now calls home. Now that he’s not 22 anymore, Christopher thought it was time to fulfill his lifelong dream of having a radio show.
