Amelia Gray is the author of AM/PM (Featherproof Books) and Museum of the Weird (FC2). Her first novel, THREATS, is due Winter 2012 from Farrar, Straus and Giroux.

Matthew Simmons lives in Seattle with his cat, Emmett. He is the author of A JELLO HORSE (2009, Publishing Genius Press) and THE MOON TONIGHT FEELS MY REVENGE (2010, Keyhole Press). More things about him can be discovered at themanwhocouldntblog.blogspot.com.
