Rick Wilber is an award-winning writer, editor, poet, and professor. He is the author of four novels, four short-story collections, a memoir about caregiving for his parents, four college textbooks on writing and the mass media. He has edited several anthologies for Night Shade/Skyhorse, New Word City, and Tachyon Books. He has published more than seventy short stories, many of them in Asimov’s, including the novella, “The Death of the Hind” (co-authored with Kevin J. Anderson) in the current issue of that magazine. The story is a sequel to their award-winning novelette, “The Hind,” which won the magazine’s Reader Award in 2021 and won last year’s Canopus Award for Best Interstellar Fiction – Short Form. His novel Alien Day was a finalist for the 2017 John W. Campbell Memorial Award for Best Novel. He is perhaps best known for including characters with Down syndrome in his stories, reflective of his son with Down syndrome, and for including elements of baseball in his stories, reflective of his father’s career as a major-league player, scout, coach and, very briefly, manager. The story he’ll be reading for SF in SF is a new one, inclusive of both of those elements.  Rick is a visiting professor in Western Colorado University’s low-residency Graduate Program in Creative Writing in the Genre Fiction program

E. Lily Yu is the author of the novel On Fragile Waves, which won the Washington State Book Award, the story collection Jewel Box, and Break, Blow, Burn, & Make, forthcoming in 2024. She received the Artist Trust LaSalle Storyteller Award in 2017 and the Astounding Award for Best New Writer in 2012.

Chaz Brenchley is a British writer of novels and short stories, associated with the genres of horror, crime and fantasy. Some of his work has been published under the pseudonyms of Ben Macallan and Daniel Fox. Chaz also serves as one of three hosts, with Jeannie Warner and John Schmidt, of the podcast Writers Drinking Coffee. Winner of the British Fantasy Society’s August Derleth Award in 1998 for Light Errant (and not, as often stated, the Outremer series), he has also published three books for children and more than 500 short stories in various genres. His time as Crimewriter-in-Residence at the St Peter’s Riverside Sculpture Project in Sunderland resulted in the collection Blood Waters. Brenchley has also been writer in residence at the University of Northumbria. Charles de Lint praised Dispossession as “one of those increasingly rare books that remind you just how satisfying fiction can be.”  He currently resides in the South Bay with his wife, author Karen Brenchley, one of the original founders of the SF in SF authors series (along with Terry Bisson), cats, and many, many cookbooks.
