About the Author
Stephen Baxter was born in England in 1957. He worked as a teacher of maths and physics, and in information technology. He is a Chartered Engineer, a Fellow of the British Interplanetary Society, and a Vice-President of the HG Wells Society. Stephen has been a full-time author since 1995, and his science fiction novels have been published in the UK, the US, Germany, Japan, France, and elsewhere, and have won several awards. His non-fiction includes Deep Future, Omegatropic, TheScience of Avatar, and Revolutions in the Earth: James Hutton and the True Age of the World.
Peter Watts is a former marine biologist, flesh-eating-disease survivor and felon/tewwowist whose novels-despite an unhealthy focus on space vampires-have become required texts for university courses ranging from Philosophy to Neuropsychology. His work is available in 24 languages, has appeared in 32 best-of-year anthologies, and been nominated for 59 awards. His (somewhat shorter) list of 22 actual wins includes the Hugo, the Shirley Jackson, and the Seiun. He seems disproportionately popular in countries with a history of Soviet occupation. He lives in Toronto with fantasy author Caitlin Sweet, five cats, a pugilistic rabbit, a Plecostomus the size of a school bus, and a gang of tough raccoons who shake him down for kibble on the porch every night.
Julie Nováková is an evolutionary biologist by study, active in science education and outreach, one of the many founding members of the EAI, and acclaimed author, editor and translator of speculative fiction. She has edited or co-edited four anthologies in three different languages(English: Dreams From Beyond: Anthology of Czech Speculative Fiction; Strangest of All: Anthology of Astrobiological Science Fiction; Czech: Terranullius; Filipino: Haka, co-edited with Jaroslav Olsa, Jr.). Her stories and translations appeared in Clarkesworld, Asimov's, Analog,, F&SF and elsewhere, and s he occasionally publishes nonfiction in Clarkesworld, Analog and other venues.
