Christopher Rice Posts Semi-Nude Pic After Losing Literary Award

10277048_10152163544008215_977572773688410016_nCelebs posting semi-nude photos on their social media accounts is a trend we fully support. The latest to earn our enduring respect is out writer Christopher Rice, son of literary icon Anne, and a very talented novelist in his own right. Chris was nominated for the prestigious Bram Stoker Award this year for The Heavens Rise, his acclaimed Louisiana-set thriller, but unfortunately lost the prize. He’d earlier posted a note on Facebook promising his friends and fans that if he didn’t take home the award for Superior Achievement in a Novel tonight that he’d post a shirtless pic, or in his own words: “If I don’t win the Bram Stoker Award tonight expect mad shirtless selfie action in a desperate clawing bid for validation.”

While we wish Chris had won, we’re super-happy that he didn’t. As soon as he returned home from the ceremony, he peeled off his silver suit and purple tie — and apparently everything else — to keep his word, or as he put it: “A promise is a promise. Since I didn’t win the Stoker tonight it’s time to start preparing my costume for Romantic Times in New Orleans next weekend.” His loss is definitely our gain.

      Desperate. Please, Christopher, next time, think twice. You already get quite enough attention. Just say no.

      Very hot. A natural man with no ink! A winner in my book.

      @Kangol: I like when hot guys show some skin, what’s wrong with it?

      I’ve actually read a couple of his novels, but it’s been years at this point. He’s certainly gotten older since the last time I saw him, but fuck, I want that body in my bed right now. Damn he’s hot.

      He is looking good. Seems like he’s borrowing a page from Zac Efron and his shirtless promise. I tried reading one of his earlier works, and it was pretty awful. But will gladly get the new one from the library and see what it’s like.

      There’s no reason why he should’ve won the award – his books are not good at all. He’s been riding on his Mom (and Dad’s) coat tails for years, even taking ideas from Stan and some how creating novels out of them. Realy poorly written novels. Beyond that, nothing extravagant here in the pic that you can’t see on GWiP.

      I didn’t like Rice’s “A Density of Souls” at all…but maybe I’ll give his work another chance. Funny nobody has mentioned who DID win the Bram Stoker Award this year. Congratulations to Stephen King for “Doctor Sleep” are in order.

      His selfie got over 2000 likes and more than 600 comments in about 12 hours. At the same time, he’s a bestselling novelist. If anyone has a problem here, it sure isn’t Chris Rice.

      @jake3614: Well, Jake, the New York Times and millions of readers all over the world disagree with you about the quality of his work. As for “riding his Mom’s coattails,” all of his books prior to this one have been thrillers, a genre quite distinct from his mother’s, and he generated the fans of those books with no crossover from his mother’s work, for obvious reasons. I’m sure you’ll forgive me for pointing out that you sound really bitter, and like you have some personal grudge. That’s the thing about comment sections like this one—they sure do attract the jealous and the vindictive.

      The desperate need for validation with these people! It’s almost pathological!

      Nice shirtless pic on your icon, James In Cambridge. Not a bit pathological.
