Eleven authors with one thing in common, we were in the Clarion West Workshop for Science Fiction and Fantasy class of 2001. Other than that, we're about as diverse as you can get. This anthology is one of the broadest samples you can find of up and coming science fiction and fantasy talent. Included are:

Ibi Zoboi - both a writer and storyteller of the oral tradition, has won "Tricky Talker of the Year", granted by the Afrikan Folk Heritage Circle, and is a recipient of grants from the Brooklyn Arts Council and the Speculative Literature Foundation (Gulliver Travel Award)

Patrick Samphire - has had stories in both the Year's Best Fantasy #6 and the Year's Best Science Fiction: 28th Annual Edition

Kiini Ibura Salaam - is about to release the collection, Ancient, Ancient, from Aqueduct Press and is a former Thomas J. Watson fellow

Allan Rousselle - career journalist and video humorist

Benjamin Rosenbaum - nominated for a Nebula for the first story he wrote at Clarion West, also a finalist for the Hugo and Theodore Sturgeon Awards

Emily Mah - blogger for The Black Gate, also an indie romance novelist under the name E.M. Tippetts

Samantha Ling - received an honorable mention in The Year's Best Science Fiction for the first short story she ever sold (to Asimov's)

Ari Goelman - will have his first novel, The Path of Names, released by Adam Levine in 2013

Raymund Eich - owner of CV-2 Books, an independent publisher

Susan Ee - the first indie author to be a finalist for the Cybils Awards, for her novel, Angelfall

Linda DeMeulemeester - author of the award winning, hit series, Grim Hill, which is now in development as an animated television show
