Rabe Phillips

Rabe Phillips would do anything for a plot...

But he wouldn't write that.

A writer for more years than he can count (because he's bad at Math) Rabe has turned to dark fiction in the last few years, finding moderate success with two stories already seeing print at Dark Moon Rising (Feb 02) and Shadow Keep (June 02) and another planned for publication at Alternate Realities.  He is currently fighting with the internal editor on his dark supernatural novel Not All Dreams and trying to find his other novel so he can start the fireplace on those cold winter nights.

Daniel Karasik is a young writer from southern Ontario, Canada. He has tried a ridiculous number of times to write something Mainstream—-capital M—-but has always managed to stray back into the realm of the just-off-center. His work has appeared or will soon appear in Whistling Shade, The Ultimate Hallucination, The Dream People, and an upcoming Web-stories.net anthology. While younger than most readers expect (he is about a year short of his driver’s license), Daniel writes from the gut; that is, that magical place lodged in between the spleen and the editor’s slush pile. When his gut fails him, he writes from the gutter..

Paolo Honorificus

The author is alive. (Sometimes I wonder.) He lives alone inside a mind threatening to cave in on itself. A daydream junkie, improbable fantasies are his stalk in trade; like imagining finding a publisher who will pay for his work. He is most profound when profoundly asleep. Nothing gets finished. The author may be lazy. Two things he says most often to himself: "Did I write that?" or "Where could I have stolen that from!"
