G. C. Skelton – The Water Opens Wide and Swallows
Gorey Skelton lives a simple life of quiet dread, accompanied by a growing sense of unease and the feeling of an indefinable loss. This sometimes results in stories, which are now for the first time available to the unsuspecting public. An emerging writer based in L.A., Skelton enjoys horror and science fiction, and stories infused with a sense of the surreal and melancholy.

Thomas Wood – Let Out What’s Inside
Thomas Wood grew up in Ohio in the 1980s and while he wonders about the appropriateness of his early introduction to horror, he remains grateful for its influence on his writing (and career choices). He now lives in Wisconsin, and only scribbles sparingly on account of the two little boys who rule his home.

Kurt Jarram – Cannibals of the Hereafter
Kurt Jarram is 30 and lives in Chester in the UK. After obtaining a BA Hon degree in literature with sociology he went on to train towards teaching in the lifelong learning sector but has recently abandoned a teaching career in order to focus on writing.
Drawing inspiration from a number of different genres, his work combines the supernatural with a gritty urban realism in an attempt to blur the lines between the fantastic and the every day. Maybe your local crack house is haunted. Maybe your toilet is watching you. Where does kebab-meat really come from? Where do lost children really go?
He lives in a not too terrible flat with his boyfriend and pet praying mantis.

Julian Cardona – A Translator of Souls
Julian Cardona is an emerging writer who has always been intrigued by the intersection of Horror and Fantasy. Clive Barker’s Books of Blood and Hubert Selby Jr’s The Room impressed him so much that he realised that reading was not enough, so he decided to start writing at the age of 23. His idea of trying to blend fantastical elements with psychological horror has never really changed, but perhaps it has become a little less gory and a little more thoughtful throughout the years. At the moment Julian is finishing his debut Dark Fantasy novel which he hopes to send for publication at the end of 2018 and studying hard to improve his writing craft. When not writing, Julian teaches Statistics and Economics at a higher education institute. He lives in Malta with his wife and their enormous Great Dane, Pedro.
