Bernie Mojzes is the author of The Evil Gazebo and a passle of short stories in various anthologies and magazines, including Daily Science Fiction, Dead Souls, Dragon's Lure, Crossed Genres and the Bad-Ass Faeries Series.

A.C. Wise is the author of over thirty published short stories, which have appeared in venues such as Clarkesworld, Strange Horizons, and ChiZine among others. She grew up in the wilds of Canada, where the insects are much smaller, due to the cold. She currently lives on the outskirts of Philadelphia with her husband, two cats, and a very short dog. All evidence to the contrary, she really doesn't like bugs that much at all. For more information, visit www.acwise.net.
Linda Saboe is an artist, herbalist and nature-lover. When she is not making colorful messes with paints and clay, she volunteers her time feeding and caring for baby and/or injured raccoons, skunks, squirrels and other critters. Athough she rarely feeds insects, she does like them and encourages them in all their endeavors. She resides in the suburbs of Philadelphia with her husband, Bernie Mojzes and their dog, parrot, and a couple of cats that suddenly appeared and have decided to stay.

Cynthia Baumann has been a Belly Dancer, Fortune Teller, Cafeteria Worker, Librarian, Sunday School Teacher, Office Manager, and Admin Asst to a variety of geeks turning their grammar-challenged documents into something readable enough for a layman to understand. She also sells eco-friendly vegetable-based candles, which she loves because they are the only scented candles she has found that don't give her an allergy attack. She is currently out of work due to downsizing and procrastinating on her own novel by proofreading fiction that other people have actually completed. (Oh yeah, she's also working on putting a website together.)
A Note About Our Sponsor
Sir Reginald F. Grump, XXIII
At the tender age of eight, Sir Reginald F. Grump XXIII was discovered raiding his mother's stocking drawer for what he had thought was butterfly netting and was placed immediately into therapy, where he was to remain for years. The bartender at Calin's Pub contends that this pivotal and traumatic experience was directly responsible for Sir Reginald's obsession with all things silk, particularly regarding the pervasive eroticisation of spinnerets in his fiction.
As of this writing, Sir Reginald remains an avowed bachelor. His father, Sir Reginald F. Grump XIII, despairs of his son's prospects, and fears that his own mathematical incompetence in naming his only child, the ninth Reginald in the series, has thrown the entire future of their lineage into doubt. Sir Reginald has chosen to remain abstinent until a solution for this numerical dilemma can be found. Qualified candidates (Ph.D. or equivalent experience required, practical experience in real-time error-correction preferred, red hair highly regarded) may submit their Curriculum Vitae through Sir Reginald's agent, at the pub.
Nota bene: No bugs, spiders or other critters were harmed in the making of this website.
