As we get closer to finalizing the line-up for the anthology, we thought it was time to start introducing you to the writers we have on board. Seeing as we have our contributors list organized alphabetically, I thought we’d work backwards this time—just for something different 😉

Sean Williams writes across the field of science fiction and fantasy, for adults, young adults and children, and enjoys the odd franchise, too, such as Star Wars and Doctor Who. His work has won awards, debuted at #1 on the New York Times hardback bestseller list, and been translated into numerous languages. He was born in the dry, flat lands of South Australia, where he still lives with his wife and family. His latest novel is TROUBLETWISTERS, the first in a new series co-written with Garth Nix.

Jeff VanderMeer has had novels published in fifteen languages, won multiple awards, and made the best-of-year lists of Publishers Weekly, the San Francisco Chronicle, theLA Weekly, and many others. His award-winning short fiction has been featured onWired.com’s GeekDad and Tor.com, as well as in many anthologies and magazines, including ConjunctionsBlack Clock, and in American Fantastic Tales (Library of America). His nonfiction has appeared in the New York Times Book Review, theWashington PostThe Huffington Post, and hundreds of others. In addition, he has edited or co-edited more than a dozen influential fiction anthologies for, among others, Bantam Books and Pan Macmillan. On the pop culture front, VanderMeer’s work has been turned into short films for PlayStation Europe and videos featuring music by The Church.

With his wife Ann, he has lectured, conducted master classes, and given workshops all over the world, including at the Brisbane Arts Center in Australia, the University of California at San Diego, and Wofford College, in South Carolina. He is a frequent guest of honor at conferences around the world, including such events as Utopiales in France, the Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle, the Brisbane Writers Festival in Australia, Finncon in Helsinki, and the Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis.
