Editors and Co-founders:
Jonathan Laidlow currently works as a Web and E-learning Consultant at a UK University. Don’t mention Laurence Sterne to him. He attempts to write fiction these days, and occasionally blogs at jonlaidlow.com. He tweets as BurtKenobi.
Nigel Price is a freelance writer and editor who works as a partner in The Moor House Partnership, an outplacement and website consultancy. Though puzzled as to what he did to deserve it, he is immensely proud that Gene Wolfe dedicated the novels Home Fires and A Borrowed Man to him. He lives with his wife in Wiltshire, England and is still trying to finish his first novel, which he describes as a weird conflation of Conan Doyle, H. G. Wells and Jerome K. Jerome. Don’t mention Edmund Spenser to him.
Michael Andre-Driussi was born in California in 1962 and has lived there ever since, except for those two years spent in the Japanese interior, just before the bubble burst. He got into small press publishing with both a book (Lexicon Urthus) and a magazine (Aberrations, now defunct), a habit that has proven very hard to break. His fiction has appeared in Interzone, Pirate Writings, Tomorrow, The Silver Web, the ParaSpheres anthology and M-Brane SF; his essays have been published in The New York Review of Science Fiction, Extrapolation, Foundation and the Internet Review of Science Fiction. He co-edited (with Alice K. Turner) Snake’s-hands: the Fiction of John Crowley (2003), then went on to create Lexicon Urthus, Second Edition (2008), and The Wizard Knight Companion (2009).
Marc Aramini was born in Washington D.C. to military parents. Throughout his childhood, he lived in a variety of remote locations, from Madrid to Maine. He has spent most of his adult life in the American Southwest. He has a degree in Biochemistry from The University of Notre Dame and a Masters in English Literature from Northern Arizona University. He has taught college English and high-school Biology, worked in banking and in gyms, and even (amidst many permit and property negotiation roles) worked as a handstand and balancing act performer in a circus. His multi-volume study of the complete fiction of Gene Wolfe, beginning with Between Light and Shadow: An Exploration of the Fiction of Gene Wolfe, 1951-1986, was published in 2015. He currently teaches English composition and literature at Walters State Community College.
Robert Borski lives in the same American Midwest as Gene Wolfe and continues to maintain a website devoted exclusively to The Fifth Head of Cerberus. His fiction has appeared in Analog, Cosmos, and The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction; and his essays in The New York Review of Science Fiction. He has so far published two collections of his essays on Gene Wolfe. [links to follow]
After eight years as a geographer, Jeremy Crampton has just written his second ever piece on SF, a chapter on Philip K. Dick for an edited volume on the geography of SF.
Nick Gevers was born in Oxford, England, in 1965, and has lived in South Africa since 1970. His interest in Gene Wolfe dates back to the mid-1980s, when, after reading The Book of the New Sun, he resolved to write his MA dissertation on the works of Wolfe in general. After obtaining his MA, he received a PhD for a thesis including a section on Wolfe, and in the years since, he has published several articles discussing Wolfe, reviews of a number of Wolfe’s books, and two interviews with the great man. Gevers reviewed science fiction and fantasy books for Locus magazine from 2001-2008, and has been editor at PS Publishing since 2002. His SF anthologies include Extraordinary Engines (2008) and Other Earths (2009, with Jay Lake).

He now works at a college in Shropshire. He has written a number of science fiction and fantasy novels. His blog can be found at http://stephenpalmersf.wordpress.com/ and his latest novel, Urbis Morpheos, is now available on the Amazon Kindle.
