About the Author

J.W. Alden grew up along the coasts of Florida, where he learned to hate the sun and love the shade. While most kids his age spent their weekends at the beach or on the basketball court, he buried himself in books. He now lives just outside West Palm Beach with his wife Allison, who doesn't mind the odd assortment of musical instruments and medieval weaponry that decorate his office (as long as he tries to brandish the former more often than the latter).

J.W. Alden is a graduate of Odyssey Writing Workshop and an active member of SFWA. His short fiction has appeared in Nature, Daily Science Fiction, the Unidentified Funny Objects anthology series, and various other publications.

Jon Lasser
lives and writes in Seattle, Washington with his wifeLaura and their two children. Although he's been writing since he wassix, and has long been a published author of technical nonfiction, he'sfocused on speculative fiction for the last several years--ever sincehis wife told him to "put up or shut up" and take writing seriously.

When not writing, working in technology, or taking care of his family, Jonscuba dives. He prefers the Northwest's cold-water diving, but won'tturn down a free trip to Hawaii or Bonaire if offered.

Stewart C Baker is an academic librarian, haikuist, and speculative fiction writer. His poetry has appeared in various haiku magazines, and hisfiction in Writers of the Future, Nature, and Flash Fiction Online, among other places. Stewart was born in England, spent time in SouthCarolina, Japan, and California, and now lives in Oregon with hisfamily­­--although if anyone asks, he'll usually say he's from theInternet.

Christoph Weber is an arborist and author in Reno, Nevada. His work has appeared in Nature and other venues.

Matt Dovey is very tall, very English, and probably drinking a cup of tea right now. His surname rhymes with "Dopey"; any other similarities to the dwarf are purely coincidental.
