DERRICK FERGUSON hails from Brooklyn, NY which as all right thinking people know is the true and proper Center Of The Universe.  The son of Leroy and Corine Ferguson, he was introduced by them to movies and books which soon became the twin passions that ignited his desire to tell stories of his own.  Inspired to become a rule-breaking writer, he dedicated himself to learning the rules so that he might break them more fully and artistically.  Derrick’s manic obsessions are carefully monitored by his wife, Patricia.

JOEL JENKINS lives with his wife and children in the misty, heron-haunted reaches of the Great Northwest, shadowed in the perpetual gloom of the Rainier Mountains. This former rock vocalist for Static Condition, and Red Die #5 enjoys weightlifting, weapons collecting, and concocting a good tale.

JOSHUA REYNOLDS  is a freelance writer of moderate skill and exceptional confidence. He has written a bit, and some of it was even published. For money. By real people. His work has appeared in anthologies such as Cthulhu Unbound 2, and in periodicals such as Innsmouth Free Press.

PERCIVAL CONSTANTINE hails from the mythical land of Chicago, where he grew up consuming movies, comics, novels, and video games at a rate that physicians agree isdangerous to one’s sanity. Proving too strange for America, he moved to Japan where he fits right in. Prior to blackmailing his way into becoming a writerfor PulpWork Press, he self-published two novels and began a freelancelettering career. He divides his time between writing books, lettering comics,and teaching small Japanese children how to curse in English.

RUSS ANDERSON can usually be found in the suburbs of Baltimore, where he lives with his wife, his daughter, two beagles, and a very old, very angry cat. When he’s not working for the man, he enjoys bicycling, making up stories, and pie. He is the editor of How The West Was Weird.

TOM DEJA writes. He talks about movies and comics. He has lived in New York City all his life. This last fact is not his fault. He can be found these days in Fangoria magazine or on the Better in the Dark and DJ Comics Cavalcade podcasts. His story, “Don Cuevo’s Curative”, appeared in How The West Was Weird.

BILL KTE’PI spent the last year writing about the economy so he could move to New Mexico, only to have to cancel the move because of the economy.  When he’s not embodying irony, he works as a writer for textbooks and reference books, and makes as much time for fiction as possible.  His webpage includes links to other work. His story, “Out South of Borachon Creek” appeared in How The West Was Weird.

MIKE MCGEE is the writer/co-creator of EL GORGO!: The World’s Most Awesome Comics Magazine. Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, he now lives in Virginia. His story (co-written with Chris Munn), “The Town With No Name” appeared in How The West Was Weird.

IAN MILEHAM was born in Cambridge, England and currently lives in Northampton where he’s working hard to become a published author. He is 35 years old, married to Emma and father of one 4-year-old daughter, the implausibly charming Francesca. His story, “You Need To Know What’s Coming” appeared in How The West Was Weird.

CHRIS MUNN is a Kentucky born madman with over a dozen warrants out for his arrest. An up-and-coming writer that works in the social service field, helping care for adults with mental disabilities, Chris is thankful for any opportunity to attach his name to a project he has no business being a part of. He has no wife and no children (that he’s aware of), so he spends his devotion on his dog Corky and an increasingly expensive addiction to cigarettes. Also, he once shot a man in Reno just to watch him die. His story (co-written with Mike McGee), “The Town With No Name” appeared in How The West Was Weird.

BARRY REESE has written for Marvel Comics, Wild Cat Books and West End Games. He is best known for his stint on the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe and his series of pulp adventure novels starring the Rook. Barry lives in Georgia with his wife (artist Cari Reese) and their son, Julian. His story, “Sins Of The Past” appeared in How The West Was Weird.

IAN TAYLOR always preferred playing the Indian to his friends’ cowboys as a kid, which made him very popular with the other kids and very suspicious to the adults. He was born in Roanoke, but currently hangs his hat in rural Montana, within spitting distance of Little Bighorn. He is married to a beautiful woman and also to his day job. His story, “Space Miners” appeared in How The West Was Weird. This is his first published work.
