About Christopher L. Bennett

I am a science fiction author (novels and short fiction) living in Cincinnati, Ohio.  I attended Walnut Hills High School and the University of Cincinnati.  I have written multiple Star Trek novels including Ex Machina, Orion’s Hounds, The Buried Age, and Over a Torrent Sea; the Marvel superhero novels X-Men: Watchers on the Walls and Spider-Man: Drowned in Thunder; and assorted works of original fiction.

I am seeking employment, ideally as a writer, proofreader, or copyeditor in a work-from-home capacity or in the Cincinnati area.  My resume is available here:

    I love the Typhon PAct series and the evolving Trek-universe past the post-Dominion era. Im a little annoyed that Im sitting in Norway right now, and dont seem to be able to buy a download for the new typhon book…

    is there gonna be a time when the new typhon pact book you wrote is going to be in mass market paperback?

      Mass-market format is unlikely, since it’s only novella-length. If they do more e-books, then maybe it’ll be included in a trade paperback collection several years down the road, but there’s no way of knowing at this point.

    Hello Mr. Bennett,

    I really liked Your Star Trek DTI books and just ordered Rise of the Federation. As I see it already has a few very positive reviews.

    The reason why I write to you is not only to give praise, but also to ask you if you’re allowed to finish this series. I couldn’t bear another Michael A. Martin book, especially with this important time period of the Star Trek universe. It would really be nice to know.

    Best Regards,
    Thomas Bahr

      I’m currently working on the second book in the series; beyond that, nothing’s been decided yet, but I do hope to continue.

        Good for you! As well as for us readers I believe. I’m still waiting for “A choice of futures” to be shipped. I live in Germany and apparently amazon didn’t have it in stock here. Looking forward to read it and for the ENT legacy to continue! My favorite series with VOY actually.

        Wishing inspiration and a steady wordflow!

    Mr. Bennett I’m currently going through “A Choice Of Futures”. I like it so far but I do have a quibble. In Naval tradition a ship class is named after the 1st ship of the class to be launched. In that tradition the refit NX-class would be called the Endeavour-class, not Columbia since there is currently no Columbia in service, let alone being the 1st out of the dock with the refit.

      I am, of course, aware of that custom, which is why I specified that it was given that name at Archer’s insistence in order to honor Erika Hernandez’s lost ship. I thought that made it clear enough that it was an exception to the rule.

      Then again, if that rule were applied diligently in this timeframe, then NX-01 would’ve itself been called Enterprise class rather than NX class, wouldn’t it? So that does suggest that naming a class for the first ship in service is not a universal rule at this point in history.

    Love your Star Trek: DTI series. Quite excellent stories. Different from the norm, which i like.

    Hi, sorry to intrude, but I just finished X-Men: Watchers on the Walls, and I just wanted to say I loved it! The story was creative and compelling, and the characters captured perfectly in their essence. I’m a huge fan of all things Marvel (and, well, just books in general – I have more books than I can fit on my bookshelves) and I will definitely be on the look out for more of your works!
