     HANA LEE is a biracial Korean American writer who also builds software for a living. She has an undying love for fantastical stories in all their forms, especially video games, and a habit of writing to moody indie rock playlists. A graduate of Stanford University, she’s always loved the dark, the gothic, and the occult, so there’s usually a picturesque ruin of some kind lurking in the background of her novels.

Her short writing has appeared in Fantasy Magazine and Uncanny Magazine, and her first novel, Road to Ruin, is out now from Saga Press (debuting at SF in SF!) It’s the first book in the Magebike Courier series, as well as a love letter to her favorite movie, Mad Max: Fury Road. She lives in California with her partner and two beloved and ridiculously fluffy cats. Learn more about this author who’s definitely off to a great start at https://authorhanalee.com/about

     SAMANTHA MILLS is a multiple award-winning author living in Southern California. Her debut science fantasy novel, The Wings Upon Her Back, is out now from Tachyon Publications. She has published a dozen short stories, appearing in Uncanny Magazine, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Strange Horizons, Escape Pod and others. In addition to winning the Nebula, Locus, and Theodore Sturgeon Memorial awards for her short story “Rabbit Test” in 2023, Sam has also been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, made the Locus Recommended Reading List and the BSFA long list multiple times, and was included in the best-of anthologies The New Voices of Science Fiction and The Year’s Best Science Fiction & Fantasy 2023.

Sam grew up in Southern California, where she still lives with her family and cats. She graduated from the University of Santa Cruz with a B.A. in Pre- and Early Modern Literature, and received a Master’s in Information and Library Science from San Jose State University. In the other half of her life, she is a trained archivist specializing in primary documents, with a particular focus on helping local historical societies and research libraries preserve and manage their collections. When Sam isn’t working, writing or taking care of children, she’s watching B-movies, binding books, and crocheting stuffed animals. You can find more about this talented author at www.samtasticbooks.com.

     CAITLIN CHUNG has lived in the Bay Area her whole life. She is a teacher, an expert eavesdropper, a fan of infomercials, and is known to be a supporter of superstitions. She has on many occasions been justly accused of being a Luddite. She lives in Oakland with her husband and their cat. Ship of Fates was her first book, and a Foreword INDIES Finalist.

Out from Lanternfish Press, Ship of Fates is a historical fantasy weaving together western fairy tales and Asian-American history and mythology. Beginning in the gridlocked harbor of San Francisco’s Barbary Coast, with a ship hung with red paper lanterns draws crowds eager to gamble and drink. Aboard it, the fates of two young women will be altered irrevocably—and tied forever to that of an ancient lighthouse keeper who longs to be free. Set against the backdrop of Gold Rush-era San Francisco’s Chinese immigrant community, Ship of Fates is a coming-of-age fairy tale that stretches across generations. We look forward to more fantastic fiction from this local author – in the meantime, learn a bit more here – https://tinyurl.com/7pwxszra
