Mikey Hamm – Soft Feet

Mikey Hamm is a writer and artist living in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. He loves monsters, magic swords, psionic blasts, masked killers, death rays, and anything that opens up and oozes stuff, generally.
Mikey works as a support worker to a man with autism, and his documentary series about people with disabilities earned him a spot in Avenue Edmonton’s Top Forty Under Forty in 2016.
He is married to a hilarious woman with amazing hair named Stephanie, who is likely giving birth to their first child as you read this. I mean, only the first time you read this, not every time. She’s not trapped in a hellish, birth-giving limbo for all eternity or anything. That would be awful.
Mikey’s goals include becoming the world’s best dungeon master and losing ten pounds before the baby gets here.

Patrick Winters – Goodnight’s Alternative Carnival of Curiosities

patrick-winters-picPatrick Winters is a recent graduate of Illinois College in Jacksonville, IL, where he earned a degree in English Literature and Creative Writing. As a student, he was a co-editor in chief of the college’s literary and art magazine, Forte, and is a member of the international English honors society, Sigma Tau Delta. Winters is an avid listener of all things hard-rock and heavy-metal, a compendium of comic-book knowledge, can (and will) do a perplexing array of voice impersonations, and can bend his thumbs further back than any person should have the right/capability of doing. It is all quite odd . . .

Helena Way – The Wolf

Helena Way was born in Poland in 1994 but grew up in the North of England from the age of three. She enjoyed building imaginary worlds from an early age and started writing stories at eight years old. She moved to Australia at the age of eleven and following her parents’ divorce, moved to Poland. She attended a small private school with a heavy hazing culture, before moving to the South of England and enrolling at a low ranking state school. She wrote a story based on her experience with severe depression for the school anthology, published by First Story. She became interested in criminology following a fellow student’s failed school shooting attempt. She is currently editing her novel based on Columbine while studying Psychology and Law. Helena’s personal experience of discrimination lead to a wider interest in minority groups – she is learning the Lakota language and reading Native American mythology.

Ian Mullins – Do Nothing

Ian Mullins throws his towel into the ring from Liverpool, England. In between bouts of clerical work with a local hospital he writes stories, poems, novellas and novels in a variety of genres – anything that seems alive and almost kicking. His main meals are Campbell, Lovecraft and Ligotti, with side orders of Machen, Blackwood and Koja. The poems have found foster parents in over a hundred and fifty homes; the stories struggle to find even temporary accommodation. The novels are fast asleep on a park bench near you.
