About the Authors

Ron Collins

Ron Collins writes across the spectrum of speculative fiction, as well as the occasional thriller or crime story. His latest SF series, Stealing the Sun is available from Skyfox publishing.

His short fiction has received a Writers of the Future prize and a CompuServe HOMer Award. His short story "The White Game" was nominated for the Short Mystery Fiction Society's 2016 Derringer Award.

He has contributed a hundred or so short stories to professional publications such as Analog, Asimov's, and several other magazines and anthologies (including several editions of the Fiction River Anthology Series).

He holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering, and has worked to develop avionics systems, electronics, and information technology before chucking it all to write full-time–which he now does from his home in the shadows of the Santa Catalina Mountains.

You can learn more about him at typosphere.com, or follow him on twitter @roncollins13.


Leah R. Cutter

Leah Cutter writes page-turning, wildly imaginative fiction set in exotic locations, such as a magical New Orleans, the ancient Orient, rural Kentucky, Seattle, Minneapolis, and many others.

She writes fantasy, science fiction, mystery, literary, and horror fiction. Her short fiction has been published in magazines like "Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine" and "Talebones", anthologies like Fiction River, and on the web. Her long fiction has been published both by New York publishers as well as small presses.

Joel Ewy

Joel Ewy is centrally located for your convenience, has a wife and two kids, and took the Liberal Arts concept way more seriously than it was probably ever intended to be. He's a digital philosopher, and also fixes computers, sometimes for pay.

He's just irresponsible enough to start spending a little less time doing that and more time writing, and making weird, anachronistic computer-based art pieces. Joel has an extensive collection of classic computers from the late '70s to the early '90s and beyond, but he's still looking for that free Atari ST to fall out of the sky. Use your best faux German accent, or pretend you're Dr. Strangelove when you say his last name, and you might get it right. (Hint: Ay-Vee)

You can also find him in the Alternative Truths Anthology.


Richard Ed. Jones

Richard Ed. Jones is the author of the ferocious, fast and funny A Dude’s Guide to Babies: The New Dad’s Playbook, an Amazon bestseller in child rearing. In addition to helping first-time fathers laugh their way through learning how to care for their children, Richard also is a prolific writer of short fiction. Mostly he writes what he says he sees. Though, considering that he’s mostly writing fantasy, urban fantasy and science-fiction, there’s some doubt that he’s being anything near honest about what he sees.

Richard currently is hard at work on expanding his award-winning short story for middle-grade readers, The Mismatched Monster, into a novel. He frequently writers in the CurseWerks universe, chronicling the trials, tribulations and tintinnabulations of those who fight back against mad science, mad sorcery and vampire wiener dogs. Richard is not renowned for his ability to avoid bad humor and worse puns. His short fiction is available on amazon.com (amazon.com/author/richardejones).

M. E. Owen

M.E. Owen writes science fiction, fantasy and crime, often in the same story.

She lives on the wet side of Washington state, and when not writing, plays with honking big transportation geodatabases, occasionally kayaks and more occasionally throws knives (not all at once, but that would be cool).

Her short work has also appeared in Abyss & Apex, Fireside Fiction, Fiction River, Flash Fiction Online, and elsewhere. Her debut novel, Survival Instincts, a science fiction noir, is scheduled for publication in 2018. You can keep up with her at www.MEOwen.com.


Tami Veldura

Tami Veldura is an enby/aro/ace author of queer fiction. They have published short stories in anthologies Fresh Starts, Hauntings, Love Among The Thorns, Love Is Like A Box Of Chocolates, and they are a contributing member of the scifi magazine Boundary Shock Quarterly. They publish new work every month, crossing every genre, but always featuring queer characters and found families.
