Aldridge

SOUTH BELOIT - Fiction, fantasy, science-fiction and horror author Chris Aldridge will write on just about any topic, including guides to his religion: modern Ancient Greek.

The author recently moved to South Beloit from North Carolina and is looking to share his work and spiritual practices with those in the Stateline Area.

He has written two novellas and more than 20 short stories for magazines on a variety of topics. Most recently he has been writing for "Dark Dossier," a monthly magazine featuring a collection of fiction and nonfiction stories about darkness and the supernatural. One of his more recent stories published in the magazine is called "The Cellar Chronicles."

"The moral of the story is death doesn't discriminate," Aldridge said. "If you want to hear death laugh, talk about how rich you are."

Aldridge said he grew up Christian but was interested in Ancient Greek since he watched the film "The Odyssey" at a young age. He's been with his wife for 10 years after they met through having similar YouTube channels where they discussed their religion.

He said his belief was really confirmed for him when he believes the "old gods" helped his son, who was born prematurely, breathe on his own.

He has written a few books on his faith which he hopes will serve as a guide for those interested in the modern Ancient Greek religion, as he said there was previously little to no literature on his religion.

He said the Paganism is a movement that continues to grow across the globe, including here in the Stateline Area. For more information, go to www.caldridge.net.
