Rebecca Jane Garner was born in 1982 in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire. She was an avid poet and fiction writer from an early age, spurred on to pursue creative fantasies on an electric typewriter she was given for her ninth birthday. Rebecca received her undergraduate and Master’s degree in English Literature at Cardiff University. She went on to study a part-time PhD in Gender and Madness in Victorian Gothic short fiction, whilst working at an animal rescue centre. Pursuing a second interest, she put the PhD on hold and recently moved to a career as a web content editor. Despite some years of neglect, she has taken up the pen for the purpose of fiction again and is easing herself back into writing.

I was born in Madrid, where I lived until the age of 18. Then I decided to move to France for a year, to study French and gather my thoughts about what I wanted to do with my life. Four years later I graduated in European Studies and Russian Language at the University of Manchester. Currently I work as a freelance translator and I am saving money to move to Taiwan and learn Chinese . The first story I got published was by Almond Press in the previous ebook collection, since then I have won the Guardian’s short story competition, Protest! Already available in Amazon, and I have been honoured with a second publication with Almond Press…so I guess that makes three out of three. I have also recently created a blog of short stories, called “Digital Pulp” (La Pulpa Digital), however, it is in Spanish and pretty much empty so far.
Paul S. Huggins hails from the United Kingdom within the history and witchcraft rich county of Suffolk. He resides there with his Wife, two daughters and a familiar called ‘George’. His introduction to the genre was being scared to death at an early age by a movie called ‘Dawn of the Dead’. It changed his whole aspect on the apocalypse, and now thinks when not if! With numerous short stories published and three self-published books, Paul would say horror is in his blood, but thankfully, he is still living.
