In Christopher Fahy’s novel, Gone from the Game, a shell-shocked World War I veteran and former Red Sox pitcher sets out to kill Babe Ruth during a ballgame. In The Christmas Star, a real estate developer is involved in an auto accident that radically changes his life for the better. And in Chasing the Sun, a cantankerous aging poet returns to his hometown to receive an honorary degree and creates havoc.
Fahy’s Limerock: Maine Stories is used in English classes in Maine colleges. His stories, poems, articles, and reviews have appeared in many publications, including Down East, Transatlantic Review, Puckerbrush Review, The Beloit Poetry Journal, and The Twilight Zone Magazine. His poetry and fiction have been included in a number of anthologies, among them Maine Speaks, Traveling America with Today’s Poets, Beyond Lament: Poets of the World Bearing Witness to the Holocaust, and The King is Dead: Tales of Elvis Postmortem. He has won the Maine Arts Commission Fiction Competition, judged by Mary McCarthy, and a grand prize in Atlanta Review’s International Poetry Competition. He is a founding member of the University of Maine at Augusta’s Terry Plunkett Maine Poetry Festival.
Fahy lives in Thomaston with his wife, children’s book author Davene Fahy.
