Christopher Allen, a native Tennessean, teaches English in Germany--when he's not traveling. Allen is obsessed with seeing, and perhaps understanding, the world.
His fiction and non-fiction have appeared online at The Smoking Poet, Full of Crow and Bootsnall Travel, among others. In print, Allen's work has been featured in Chicken Soup for the Soul and several other anthologies. He is an editor at Metazen, a literary ezine that publishes mainly metafiction and prose/poetry containing elements of the surreal or the absurd. Allen writes about his travels at www.imustbeoff.blogspot.com.
