K.L. Young is a writer and the Editor of Strange Aeons Magazine. He is also the screenwriter of several short and feature films.

Dick Lupoff discovered HPL when he smuggled an Avon paperback into church in 1946, hid it inside a hymnal and read "The Dunwich Horror". In later years he co-edited and published the Hugo-winning fanzine Xero with his wife, Pat. Working at Canaveral Press, he became the posthumous editor of Edgar Rice Burroughs. His own books include Sun's End, Marblehead: A Novel of H. P. Lovecraft, The Great American Paperback, and the Lindsey and Plum mystery series.

ROSS E. LOCKHART is an author, anthologist, editor, and publisher. A lifelong fan of supernatural, fantastic, speculative, and weird fiction, Lockhart is a veteran of small-press publishing, having edited scores of well-regarded novels of horror, fantasy, and science fiction. He edited the anthologies The Book of Cthulhu I and II, Tales of Jack the Ripper, The Children of Old Leech (with Justin Steele), Giallo Fantastique, Cthulhu Fhtagn!, Eternal Frankenstein, and the forthcoming Tales from a Talking Board (October 2017).

Andrew S. Fuller writes and edits horror, fantasy, and science fiction. His work appears in magazines On Spec, Crossed Genres, The Pedestal, anthologies FISH, Swords v Cthulhu, and several short films, including an HPLFF award-winner "Effulgence." Since 1999, he's edited the fiction magazine Three-Lobed Burning Eye. Once from the Midwest, he dabbled in heavy metal and theater, and now lives in Portland, Oregon between a volcano and two rivers, where he commits archery, design, and cocktail quaffery.
