Richard Kadrey is a freelance writer living in San Francisco, whose current novel, The Everything Box, is being closely followed by the release of The Perdition Score: A Sandman Slim Novel, in June. He is the author of dozens of stories, plus ten novels, including Sandman Slim, Kill the Dead, Aloha from Hell, Devil Said Bang, Kill City Blues, Metrophage and Butcher Bird. His Wired magazine cover story, “Carbon Copy,” was made into one of the worst movies of 2001. It starred Bridget Fonda. Sorry, Bridget. He has been immortalized as an action figure. “Kadray [sic]: The Invincible Wizard” was a villain in an episode of the Blackstar animated TV series. Kadrey created and wrote the Vertigo comics mini-series Accelerate, which was illustrated by the Pander Brothers. He plans to do more comic work in the near future. He has written and spoken about art, culture and technology for Wired, The San Francisco Chronicle, Discovery Online, The Site, SXSW and Wired For Sex on the G4 cable network.​ ​Richard has no qualifications for anything he does.

Thomas Olde Heuvelt is the Dutch author of five novels and many short stories. His work has appeared in many languages, including English, Chinese, Japanese, Italian and French. In 2015, his story, “The Day the World Turned Upside Down” was the first ever translated work to win a Hugo Award. His other stories have been nominated for both Hugo and World Fantasy Awards. In 2016, Olde Heuvelt’s critically acclaimed horror novel, Hex, which became a bestseller in The Netherlands, was launched in the US, the UK and Australia, followed by a six week US promotional tour in June-July. Ten publishers in fourteen countries have obtained the rights for the book, and Warner Bros. is currently developing a TV series based on the novel.
