Howard V. Hendrix has held a variety of jobs ranging from hospital phlebotomist to fish hatchery manager to university professor and administrator.

Hendrix is the author of several novels and shorter science fiction and experimental pieces. His repertoire also includes numerous political essays and works of literary criticism in addition to a book on landscape irrigation, Reliable Rain, which he coauthored with Stuart Straw.
