My Online Prose Portfolio

"Write out of love, write out of instinct, write out of reason. But always for money."
Louis Untermeyer

Thank you for stopping by my Online Prose Portfolio!

My name is Eric Christ, and this site contains several of my written works, some old, some new.

You can navigate the site through the buttons on the left, or use the links below.


Check out some of my short stories, including two that have been published. There's even a poem. Also check here for announcements and links to published stories.


This page contains some essays and other papers I've written, mainly for college classes. 

Book Reviews

The most frequently updated page, this section contains reviews of virtually all of the books I've read since August 2000. I'm an avid reader, so there's a lot of them.

The latest: Quicker Than The Eye

Weekly Muse archives

From August 2001 to February 2002, I wrote a weekly column on politics and current events. It was a lot of fun, but started eating into my novel-writing time, so I dumped it.

Occasional Muse archives

Some time after putting the kibosh on the Weekly Muse, I started the Occasional Muse, an infrequent column on current affairs. But that also went the way of the dinosaur when I made the decision to focus almost entirely on my fiction-writing.
