Notes on Writers
Whose Work has been Featured on the Preceding Pages
Barzak has moved
from Ohio to California to Michigan, and back to Ohio. His fiction
has appeared in Nerve, Strange Horizons, The Icon, The Penguin
Review, The Year's Best Fantasy & Horror, as well as in LCRW.
He is happy when he's dancing.
NOTICE: Lecture, tonight only,
at the intersection of the two tall guys crossing the street and
the strangely happy Asian woman waiting for the light to change,
a lecture by ex-mathematician, ex-Sufi organic farmer, ex-alternative
medicine MD, ex-married person, ex-non-fiction book writer, Steven
Bratman, on "the unwavering determination to creatively
Brian Conn lives in
Seattle. The rest -- besides having eaten a ram's eye -- is sort
of a blur.
Timmel Duchamp ties
her shoelaces with two loops. She adores grazing on parsley hearts
and guerrilla gardens every chance she gets. Currently she is
contemplating the fact that she enjoyed only 13 years between
the last time she was carded (for alcohol consumption) and the
first time she was asked if she was a senior citizen (eligible
for a discount). She lives in Seattle.
Coleman Finlay's poetry and fiction has especially frequently
of late. Mention has been made of this in reference to the rather
unusual weather experienced of recent months. No one really thinks
the multi-talented Mr. Finlay is to blame. Not really.
Jeffrey Ford is the
author of the novels The Physiognomy, Memoranda, The Beyond
and The Portrait of Mrs. Charbuque, and a collection
of short fiction, The Fantasy Writer's Assistant & Other Stories.
Ford's stories have appeared or will appear in: The Journal
of Pulse-Pounding Narratives, ...is this a cat?, Leviathan 3,
F&SF, The Green Man & Other Tales of the Mythic Forest, and
The Year's Best Fantasy & Horror.
Geoffrey H. Goodwin
thinks his life has been (in strange cycles of alternation and
repetition): blessed, cursed, and somewhere in-between. He is
hard at work on a novel, The Gray House on 747 Comstock, and
currently teaches writing and composition at Hartwick College
in upstate NY -- but feels a beautiful hazelnut-scented wind blowing
in a Bostonly direction.
Gavin J. Grant is.
Krasnoff lives in Brooklyn and knows more about computers
than your IT department. She may in fact be your IT department.
She has written a few stories, she has published a few stories.
We expect this ratio will continue.
Link is very
surprised, very flattered, and very far away.
William Smith is divesting
himself of hundreds of 8-tracks to make space for more films.
His film column will appear regularly here and on the LCRW
Amber van Dyk resides
on the second floor of an old converted hospital with a 39 gram
wonder birdie, surrounded by stacks of unread books she hopes
won't end up as nesting. Her stories have appeared both online
and in print, and she is currently wishing very good things for
her first urban fantasy novel, As With Cages.
van Eekhout once wrecked his car and was stung by a scorpion
on the same night. A graduate of the Viable Paradise Writers'
Workshop, his short fiction has appeared or will soon appear in
F&SF, Starlight 3, Strange Horizons, and Fantasy: Best
of 2001. He is a Los Angeles native and currently lives in
