Josh Roseman (not the trombonist; the other one) lives in Georgia (the state, not the country). His writing has appeared in Asimov’s, Escape Pod, and the Crossed Genres anthology Fat Girl in a Strange Land. His fiction has been reprinted by the Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine and StarShipSofa, and his voice has been heard on two Escape Artists and all four District of Wonders podcasts. He is a 2013 graduate of the Taos Toolbox writing workshop. When not writing, he mostly complains about the fact that he’s not writing.

Ibba Armancas is an emerging filmmaker from Seattle, WA. She was raised by historical swordfighters, and despite their protests for martial and historical accuracy, the experience forever tied her to the fantasy/science fiction genres. She’s had a script at the Austin Film Festival, and in 2012 won the Jeff Arch Screenwriting Award. She is currently in postproduction for her first feature film, a dark fantasy set in the Pacific Northwest.
