Russell Bittner's work has been widely published in print and on the 'Net. His first novel, Trompe-l'oeil, appeared at both Amazon-Kindle and Smashwords this past March, as did his two collections of short stories and one novella (in each): Stories in the Key of C. Minor. and The Dead Don't Bitch. His memoir, Girl from Baku - previously published by the very gracious and (even in motherhood) desirable Rachel Kendall via ISMs Press - also appeared at both Amazon and Smashwords in the same merry month of March, 2011. He believes, with Hobbes, that "life is short, brutish and nasty." He also believes, with Donne, however, that art is long; and that no man is one, entire of itself - either an island or a work of art. And so, his new working motto is: "Publish while ye can; for tomorrow, your little piece of the Continent may indeed become an island. Set adrift. In a sea of anonymity and noise."

Ken Poyner spent his first act publishing in the print magazines as, back then, there was no Internet. Now, in the second act he has a definite preference for web based publishing.

Fabio Sassi has had several experiences such as music (he used to play harp in a blues band), photography, writing. He has been a visual artist since 1990 making acrylics with the stencil technique on canvas, board, old vinyl records or other media. He uses logos, icons, tiny objects and shades to create weird perspectives. Many of his subjects are inspired by a paradox either real or imaginary and by the news. Often he thinks about new subjects while cycling! He lives in Bologna, Italy.
W L N Smith is a Manchester based Teessider who writes poetry and poetic narratives which he sees as sort of bulletins to no-one in-particular, but would hope that anyone, everyone (or even someone) would hear something singular in. He likes to write at turns emotively and sinisterly, to make mischief at times, and at others be consoling. This may be because he has a short attention span and low serotonin. He often aims to reach altered states through sleep deprived, caffeine stimulated typing sessions. He has been published once in a magazine called Wig and has just started reading at live venues, performing at Withington's Paradox and Matt and Phreds open mike.
Nicole Votta is an editor and writer who has logged a lot of very mundane bylines, and a few more satisfying ones. She likes consistent proofreading marks, semi-colons, her indolent habits, and psychedelic sci-fi/fantasy book covers from the '60s and '70s. She dislikes 9th chords, whisky served in Styrofoam cups, and frantic notes from people wondering what happened to their Oxford commas (although she likes Oxford commas).
