About the author

Justina Robson sold her first novel in 1999 which also won the 2000 amazon.co.uk Writers’ Bursary Award, and since then her books have been shortlisted for most major genre awards. She’s been a student and teacher at The Arvon Foundation and Clarion West, and is also the proud author of “The Covenant of Primus” – the Hasbro-authorised history and ‘bible’ of The Transformers. Her novels and stories range widely over SF and Fantasy, often combining the two and often featuring AIs and machines who aren’t exactly what they seem.

About the author

After a spectacularly unsuccessful career as a lawyer, K. J. Parker started writing for a living in 1995.

He won the World Fantasy Award for best novella two years running, and currently averages 92.8 in the SSBSA summer league. He also writes under the name Tom Holt.
