As a professional sailor, writer, scientist, and life-long gamer, writing nautical and RPG tie-in fantasy came naturally for Chris. His Scimitar Seas novels from Dragon Moon Press have won multiple gold medals from Foreword Reviews Magazine, and his Pathfinder Tales novels, Pirate’s Honor, Pirate’s Promise, and Pirate’s Prophecy from Paizo Publishing have received high praise. Aside from his pirate stories, Chris’ magical assassin, Weapon of Flesh series has become a Kindle bestseller, culminating last year with the sixth novel, Weapon of Mercy. He’s also branched into the horror genre with his novella “The Deep Gate,” an Arkham Horror tie-in story from Fantasy Flight Games. “The Deep Gate” represents two firsts in Chris A. Jackson’s writing career: it is his first contemporary sea story, and his first work of horror.
His most recent release, The Pirate’s Scourge, is the first in a new series, The Blood Sea Tales, set in his own fantasy world.
His recent short works include “Dia de Los Muertos,” in the Drawing Destiny Shadowrun anthology; “First Command,” in the Women in Practical Armor anthology from Evil Girlfriend Media; and a series of short stories for the Legendary Planets Adventure Path by Legendary Games, for Pathfinder, Starfinder, and D&D5e play.
Lastly, he has published the Cheese Runners Trilogy of satire-science fiction novellas available in digital, paper, and Audible versions.
