T. Chris Martindale

T. Chris Martindale is an author of horror novels about whom I’ve been able to find precious little online. His most well-known novels appeared between 1990 and 1993. His first horror novel, Nightblood was published in 1990 by Warner Books, followed by Where the Chill Waits in January 1991. After a publisher change, Pocket Books released Demon Dance in September 1991. His last horror novel during this period was The Voice in the Basement, published in 1993.

Nightblood was nominated for the 1990 Bram Stoker Award for First Novel, but lost to Bentley Little’s The Revelation.

It appears T. Chris Martindale is the author of a TSR Endless Quest book, Duel of the Masters, which was published in 1984 as by Chris Martindale (no “T”). If this is the same author, he also wrote Curse of the Werewolf, an Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Adventure Gamebook in 1987, and a second book in the same series, Prince of Thieves.

One thought on “T. Chris Martindale

  1. I just read your post about Bob San Souci, sad to hear. I met him many years ago in airport we were stuck in. Ended up sharing a table at a very crowded resturant. He told me about Mulan, I told him about my wife and I adopting from China. He was a very nice guy, even sent us a bunch of Mulan related prints and book along with bunch of children’s books. I had tried to contact him over the years but figured he was busy. Sad to hear, May he RIP. Our sympathies to his brother.
