Dominique Lamssies is obsessed with Batman, dead people and The King In Yellow (in that order). She was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, but has traveled throughout the United States, including stints in New Orleans and Boston, where she spent a lot of time roaming cemeteries. She has also lived abroad in places such as Ukraine and Japan, where she developed a deep and abiding love for Japanese ghosts and monsters. She strives constantly to have every story she writes involve some form of dead person and sound like it was written a hundred years ago.

Orrin Grey is a skeleton who likes monsters, not to mention a writer, editor, and amateur film scholar who was born on the night before Halloween. His stories have appeared in dozens of anthologies, including Ellen Datlow's Best Horror of the Year, and he's the author of Never Bet the Devil & Other Warnings and Painted Monsters & Other Strange Beasts, as well as Monsters from the Vault, a collection of columns on vintage horror films.

Philip Gelatt is a screenwriter, filmmaker and author of comic books. His first film, THE BLEEDING HOUSE, premiered at the 2010 Tribeca Film festival. He was the screenwriter on the Ray Bradbury Award nominated science-fiction film EUROPA REPORT, starring Sharlto Copley, Mikael Nyqvist, and Anna-Maria Marinca, released by Magnet Pictures in 2013.

He is also the the Head Editor of ERASERHEAD PRESS’ horror imprint, DEADITE PRESS and the host of the JEFF ATTACKS podcast. Born in the Pennsylvania backwoods, he was raised on a steady diet of Godzilla, Star Trek, and EC Comics. He now resides in Portland, Oregon.
