TRINA ROBBINS is an American cartoonist. She was an early and influential participant in the underground comix movement, and one of the first few female artists in that movement. Both as a cartoonist and historian, Robbins has long been involved in creating outlets for and promoting female comics artists. In the 1980s, Robbins became the first woman to draw Wonder Woman comics. She is a member of the Will Eisner Hall of Fame, and was recently honored by Prada with couture based on her drawings.

NANCY JANE MOORE jumps around within the speculative fiction genre. Her work ranges from straightforward science fiction to fantasy to slipstream and varies in length as well as subject. She has published five books with Book View Cafe and has also published with PS Publishing and Aqueduct Press, which is releasing her science fiction novel, The Weave. Her short fiction has appeared in numerous anthologies and in magazines ranging from the National Law Journal to Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet. She holds a fourth-degree black belt in Aikido. A native Texan, she now lives in Oakland, California after spending many years in Washington, D.C.

Each author will read a selection from their work, followed by conversation and Q&A with the audience, moderated by author Terry Bisson. Books for sale courtesy of Borderlands Books; feel free to bring titles for signing.
