Our 25th Anniversary Season continues with all participants from the counties of Queens and Kings. Some may be recent transplants, but dat, er, that still scars one for life -- and for the better.
Brooke Bolander writes weird things of indeterminate genre, most of them leaning rather heavily towards fantasy. She attended the University of Leicester 2004-2007 studying History and Archaeology and is an alum of the 2011 Clarion Writers’ Workshop at UCSD.
Her work has been featured in Lightspeed, Strange Horizons Nightmare, Reflection’s Edge, and the upcoming anthologies Aliens: Recent Encounters and Help Fund My Robot Army. She is a clean-burning, energy-efficient engine that runs primarily off tea, the works of Peter S. Beagle and Fumito Ueda, and feedback from her readers. Follow her on Twitter @BBolander, or at her website, brookebolander.com.
Matthew Kressel is a multiple Nebula Award finalist and World Fantasy Award finalist. His first novel, King of Shards, debuts October 13th from Resurrection House. His fiction has or will soon appear in such markets as Clarkesworld, Lightspeed, Nightmare, io9.com, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Interzone, Apex Magazine, and the anthologies After, Naked City, The People of the Book, Launch Pad, and many other markets. He was the former editor and publisher of the acclaimed 'zine Sybil's Garage and he published the World Fantasy Award-winning Paper Cities. Alongside veteran editor Ellen Datlow, he co-hosts the Fantastic Fiction at KGB reading series in Manhattan. He has been a member of the Altered Fluid writers group for more than a decade, studies the Yiddish language in his spare time, and is preternaturally obsessed with the film Blade Runner.
