Karen Joy Fowler is the author of seven novels and five short story collections. She’s written literary, contemporary, historical, and science fiction, for which she’s won two Nebulas and two World Fantasy Awards. Her most recent novel, We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, won the 2013 PEN/Faulkner, the California Book Award, and was shortlisted for the Man Booker in 2014. She lives in Santa Cruz, California, where she is currently pretending to write a new book.
Gregory Manchess combined his love for fine art and science fiction and began his freelance career painting for OMNI magazine. His versatility and broad range of interests allowed him to expand his client work to include covers for Atlantic Monthly, Scientific American, and Time Magazine, as well as spreads for Playboy, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, Smithsonian, and numerous book covers. The USPS commissioned him to paint the Mark Twain Forever stamp and the March On Washington stamp released in 2013. Gregory’s interest in history and his excellent figure work have made his paintings a favorite choice of the National Geographic Society on many occasions, including The Wreck of the C.S.S. Alabama, and recently, ten paintings for the exhibition, REAL Pirates: The Untold Story of The Whydah, from Slave Ship to Pirate Ship, still traveling to science museums around the country. Manchess has been widely awarded within the industry, including two gold and four silver medals from the NY Society of Illustrators. His peers honored him with the coveted Hamilton King Award in 1999, and the Stephan Dohanos Award for the Best Illustration of the Year by a Member in 2000. The work has garnered several silver medals and recently a bronze from the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles. He has been featured in, and on the cover of, Communication Arts Magazine and included in Walt Reed’s latest edition of The Illustrator in America, 1860-2000. Gregory teaches a week-long, intensely focused painting course along with eight other artists in Amherst, MA known as The Illustration Master Class. He currently teaches an online class in painting for SmArtSchool and lectures frequently at universities nationwide. He also holds workshops on painting at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA. Conveying emotion through rhythm and timing drives Manchess’ masterful, alla prima brushwork as the hallmark of his style. He consistently pushes the limits of the brush today, searching for renewed expressions. A video of his painting process produced in 2009, became a novel containing 123 paintings entitled, Above the Timberline, to be released in October 2017.
David Mitchell is a British writer born in 1969. He has been nominated for the Booker Prize five times and his work has appeared in over 30 languages. With KA Yoshida, he translated into English the best-selling autism memoir, The Reason I Jump by Naoki Higashida. His 2004 novel Cloud Atlas was made into a movie in 2012. His 2014 novel The Bone Clocks won the World Fantasy Award. His latest novel, From Me Flows What You Call Time, was entrusted to the Future Library Project and will not be published until 2114. He lives with his family in West Cork, Ireland.
Gordon Van Gelder published his first story in 100 Great Fantasy Short Short Stories in 1984, but the majority of his career has been spent as an editor. He worked at St. Martins’ Press for 12 years and edited The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction for 17 years. He has been honored twice with the World Fantasy Award and he also has been awarded the Hugo Award twice. He is currently the publisher of F&SF and is also editing various anthologies. He lives in New Jersey.

She has had stories in Black Gate, Realms of Fantasy, Stargate Magazine, Lightspeed Magazine, and in the anthologies Elemental, Tales of the Emerald Serpent, The Other Half of the Sky, The Gods of Lovecraft, and Mech: Age of Steel. Her new SF novella, The Murderbot Diaries: All Systems Red was released by Tor.com in May 2017.

Code of conduct
We will not tolerate harassment of the people at our convention in any form. Everyone is entitled to a harassment-free convention experience, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, race, national origin, or religion. Harassment includes but is not limited to inappropriate physical contact, unwelcome sexual attention, offensive verbal comments, deliberate intimidation, stalking or following someone, making harassing photography or recordings, and disrupting talks or other events. Anyone asked to stop any harassing behavior is expected to comply immediately. A request to “stop” or “go away” means exactly that. If anyone engages in harassing behavior, the convention committee may warn the offender, remove the offender from the room, or expel the offender from the convention with no refund, at the Chairs’ discretion.
If you feel that you are being discriminated against or harassed, or if you notice someone violating hotel or convention policies, we respectfully suggest the following: If you feel comfortable doing so, point out the inappropriate behavior to the persons involved. Often this will solve the problem immediately. If you do not feel comfortable talking with the persons involved or if talking to them does not resolve the issue, please report the situation immediately to a Convention Committee member, or Operations Staff. Try to provide a name, badge name, badge number, and/or physical description of the persons involved. In order to take action, we need to know about any incidents during the event. _____________________________________________________________
