J.W. Alden is a graduate of Odyssey Writing Workshop and an active member of SFWA. His short fiction has appeared in Nature, Daily Science Fiction, the Unidentified Funny Objects anthology series, and various other publications.
Jon Lasser lives and writes in Seattle, Washington with his wife Laura and their two children. Although he's been writing since he was six, and has long been a published author of technical nonfiction, he's focused on speculative fiction for the last several years--ever since his wife told him to "put up or shut up" and take writing seriously.
When not writing, working in technology, or taking care of his family, Jon scuba dives. He prefers the Northwest's cold-water diving, but won't turn down a free trip to Hawaii or Bonaire if offered.

His poetry has appeared in various haiku magazines, and hisfiction in Writers of the Future, Nature, and Flash Fiction Online, among other places. Stewart was born in England, spent time in SouthCarolina, Japan, and California, and now lives in Oregon with hisfamily--although if anyone asks, he'll usually say he's from theInternet.

Matt Dovey is very tall, very English, and probably drinking a cup of tea right now. His surname rhymes with "Dopey"; any other similarities to the dwarf are purely coincidental.
