Sandra M. Odell lives with her husband, sons, and cats in Washington state. Her work has appeared in such venues as PseudoPod, PodCastle, The Drabblecast, Crossed Genres, Jim Baen’s UNIVERSE, Daily Science Fiction, Ideomancer, and Galaxy’s Edge.

A Clarion West 2010 graduate, she is currently hard at work on plotting her second novel. Or world domination. Whichever comes first.

Dagny Paul is a lapsed English teacher, failed artist, and sometimes writer who lives in New Orleans, Louisiana. She has an unhealthy (but entertaining) obsession with comic books and horror movies, which she consumes whenever her five-year-old son will let her (which isn’t often). Dagny is Assistant Editor of PseudoPod, and you can follow her on Twitter.




Theme music is “Appeal to Heavens” by Alexye Nov, available from Promo DJ or his Facebook page.
