A Life of Toil or Leisure by Tris Matthews
A Life of Toil or Leisure.png

Tris Matthews is a London boy (in an achy man's body) who lives in a rapidly developing borough. A natural pessimist, he takes deliberate pleasure in forcing himself to imagine how the future could be bright. He has had a career that skirts around both wordy, artsy stuff and formal science, and is now happily working for a science publishing company. He also loves to read and write sci-fi.

Olga Werby, Ed.D., has a Doctorate from U.C. Berkeley with a focus on designing online learning experiences. She has a Master’s degree from U.C. Berkeley in Education of Math, Science, and Technology. She has been creating computer-based projects since 1981 with organizations such as NASA (where she worked on the Pioneer Venus project), Addison-Wesley, and the Princeton Review. Olga has a B.A. degree in Mathematics and Astrophysics from Columbia University. She became an accidental science fiction indie writer about a decade ago, with her first book, “Suddenly Paris,” which was based on then fairly novel idea of virtual universes. She writes about characters that rarely get represented in science fiction stories — homeless kids, refugees, handicapped, autistic individuals — the social underdogs of our world. Her stories are based in real science, which is admittedly stretched to the very limit of possible.

The Raid’s Remains by Cameron Bloomfield
The Raid's Remains.png

Cameron is currently brushing up on his Japanese for an upcoming teaching interview and wrote this to procrastinate when he really should have been hitting the books. In his spare time he jams out on his guitar, reads, enjoys killing his friend’s characters as a merciless Dungeon Master, and occasionally volunteers as a grief counsellor. He has written two horrendous novels that will never see the light of day, but is currently seeking representation for his comedy fantasy which his test readers adored (and he is sure that they are in no way biased…). He is sorely out of touch with his generation and has only just joined social media. Say hi on twitter @TheWorstAuthor.
