Steve Berman is a four-time finalist for the Lambda Literary Award for his editorial releases (including the annual HEIRESSES OF RUSS and WILDE STORIES series) and a finalist for the Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy for VINTAGE: A GHOST STORY. He has sold nearly a hundred articles, essays, and short stories. He is also the owner and publisher of Lethe Press, which began in 2001. He resides in southern New Jersey.

In 1992, Richard Bowes began writing a series of semi-autobiographical stories narrated by Kevin Grierson. These stories were published primarily in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, and later became the novel MINIONS OF THE MOON. One story, “Streetcar Dreams,” won the World Fantasy Award for Best Novella. The novel itself won the Lambda Literary Award and has just been reissued (with a brand new Grierson story) by Lethe Press. His fiction has a decidedly “New York” sensibility.

Tom Cardamone‘s edgy weird fiction has earned him two spots as a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award. Publishers Weekly wrote of his novella, GREEN THUMB: “evocative prose and detailed settings to capture the hypnotic rhythms of the sea, then takes a darker, more erotic and psychedelic turn….” His newest book is PACIFIC RIMMING from Chelsea Station Editions.

Sam J. Miller is a writer and a community organizer. A graduate of the 2012 Clarion Writers Workshop, he co-edited, with Aviva Briefel, HORROR AFTER 9/11, a critical anthology published by the University of Texas Press, which was included in the “Brilliant/Lowbrow” quadrant of New York Magazine’s famed “Approval Matrix.” His short stories have appeared in such venues as The Minnesota Review, Strange Horizons, Fiction International, Arts & Letters, The Rumpus, and the spring volume of Icarus: the Magazine of Gay Speculative Fiction.
