"I'm often drawn to a fabulist approach, influenced by writers like Kelly Link, George Saunders, Karen Russell, Colson Whitehead, Aimee Bender, Angela Carter, Jose Saramago and Jorges Luis Borges, all of whom employ elements of sci-fi, fantasy and detective fiction — not for escapism but to defamiliarize and limn the workings of our world."
Christian Moody's fiction has been published by Esquire magazine, The Cincinnati Review, The Collagist and other literary journals.
