Creator: Patrick McManus

An American humorist who writes about outdoor activities such as hunting and fishing; for many years he contributed short stories to (and served as an "editor-at-large" for) Outdoor Life magazine. Said stories, which have also been reprinted in several book collections, usually focus on his misadventures in the outdoors or recount highly-fictionalized anecdotes from his youth, which was mostly spent in the small town of Sandpoint (aka "Blight"), Idaho.

In recent years, he turned to writing a series of comedic mystery novels set in an even more fictionalized modern-day Blight; the sheriff protagonist's elderly father is essentially an Author Avatar. The series has been officially concluded, and McManus has announced on his own webpage that he now considers himself essentially retired.
