Gail Carriger writes comedies of manners mixed with paranormal romance (and sexy queer joy as G L Carriger). Her books include the Parasol Protectorate, Custard Protocol, and Supernatural Society series for adults, and the Finishing School series for young adults. She is published in many languages and has over a dozen NYT bestsellers. She was once an archaeologist and is fond of shoes, octopuses, and tea.
Matthew Bright is a writer, editor and designer who is uncomfortable writing in the third person, but soldiers on regardless. His short fiction has appeared or is forthcoming in a number of venues, including Tor.com, Nightmare's Queers Destroy Fiction, Glittership, Harlot Magazine, Clockwork Iris, Queen Mob's Teahouse and others. He is the co-author of Between The Lines, an experimental novella, with Christopher Black. He is also the editor of several anthologies, including The Myriad Carnival, Threesome: Him, Him and Me, Clockwork Cairo: Steampunk Tales of Egypt, Gents and the forthcoming A Scandal in Gomorrah. With the release of Threesome, Publishers Weekly declared him 'unambiguously...an editor to watch', which is faintly sinister the more you think about it. By day, he pays the bills as a book cover designer in Manchester, England.
