CS ThompsonCS Thompson

CS Thompson is the author of A Season of Strange Dreams, a novel featuring Noctiviganti, which was described by author John Grant as "An astonishing tour de force of noir fantasy, characterized by some of the most beautifully lyrical, atmospheric writing I've come across in a long while." ASOSD is available from BeWrite Books.

This novel is set in the fictional city of Nottamun, "a place where black magic and gangsterism go hand in hand," which is also the setting for the short story collection Games Dead People Play. This collection was reviewed for infinity plus by John Grant, who wrote: "The tales themselves are generally of small-time gangsters... of murderers, of those who live on or beyond the fringes of the law... Some of the tales draw heavily upon the supernatural, such as the title story, whose protagonist is murdered but does not die; all give the impression that, even if the supernatural is not on stage during this particular segment of Thompson's world-depiction, it is waiting in the wings, its cold breath audible to the players." (Full review available elsewhere on this site.)

His second novel, And Then the Night, was published by BeWrite Books in 2004.

CS Thompson is also the author of a poetry collection (City at the Edge of Night), a new translation of Baudelaire's classic Flowers of Evil, and Lannaireachd: Gaelic Swordsmanship, a training manual on the use of the Highland broadsword. He is the President of the Cateran Society, an organization devoted to researching and practicing the historic Gaelic martial arts. He is a board member of the Fellowship for Celtic Tradition LLC, and a member of the Celtic Martial Arts Research Society. He is 30 years old, and lives in Portland, Maine.
