MADELEINE E. ROBINS' first novel, The Stone War, received excellent reviews,
and she has two more books forthcoming.  Her short fiction has appeared in
Asimov's, F&SF, and original anthologies.  She worked in the production
department at Tor Books, and a few years later moved on to Acclaim Comics as
editor of Armed and Dangerous, Magnus Robot Fighter, Shadowman and others.
Since 1998, Ms. Robins has worked as a freelance writer and editor. 

NANCY SPRINGER has published over 30 YA novels, at least an equal number of
short stories, and a handful of poems, earning critical acclaim and numerous
awards.  Her best known books include I Am Mordred, and The Hex Witch of
Seldom.  Ms. Springer loves horses and frequently writes them into her
books, and describes herself as a pushover for kids and animals.  Her life
motto is "Conform, go crazy, or become an artist."

ELIZABETH WEIN is the author of The Winter Prince, and has a PhD in Folklore
from the University of Pennsylvania. Her short stories have appeared in
Writers of the Future Vol. IX and in a young adult collection titled Not the
Only One, and The Horns of Elfland. During her years as a graduate student
in Philadelphia, Ms. Wein learned to ring churchbells in the English style
called "change ringing," and can boast of having performed in every ringable
bell tower in Oxford (there are nineteen).... 

December's readers will be William Shunn and Jack Womack, guest curated by
Constance Ash.
