DAVE THOMAS is a veteran animator, video game developer, musician, and tech writer who escaped the madness of Hollywood and fled back to the East Coast. A notorious foody and television critic, he spends his spare time being tortured by both his cats and the rest of humanity.

MARY SANGIOVANNI is the author of over a dozen books, including Chills, Thrall, Chaos, A Darkling Plain, For Emmy, and The Hollower Trilogy. A teacher at a New Jersey-area college, she is one of the first female authors to ever speak at the Central Intelligence Agency headquarters. She is the winner of the NECON Legend Award and has been nominated for a Bram Stoker Award.

MIKE LOMBARDO is an award-winning indie filmmaker whose movies include The Stall, Demonstration of the Dead, Womb For Two, Suburban Holocaust, and the upcoming feature-length I’m Dreaming of a White Doomsday.

GEOFF COOPER is an EMT, a model rocket enthusiast, and an author whose books include Answers of Silence, Retribution Inc., Shades (with Brian Keene), and Bum Piss & Other City Scents. He has encyclopedic knowledge — and amazing collection of — old school Arkham House-era horror fiction.

PHOEBE is Dave’s long-suffering partner. Bubbly, kind, and full-of-life, she loves animals and hates horror movies in which the dog (or any other animal) dies.

DUNGEONMASTER 77.1 is Brian’s nine-year-old son. One day, he will either save the world…or destroy it.
