Fred van Lente signing Ten Dead Comedians

Fred Van Lente was raised by a mystery-loving mother and a wisecracking Woody Allen-lookalike scientist father. He is also the #1 New York Times best-selling writer of graphic novels including Cowboys & Aliens (the basis of the feature film), Odd is on Our Side with Dean R. Koontz, and several entries of the gorily funny Marvel Zombies series.

Caitlin Major and Kelly Bastow signing Manfried the Man

Caitlin Major is a Toronto-based comics writer and illustrator. Her web comics include Homesick, Peach Plum Pear, Yer a Witch Milly, and The Spirit and the Spider. Caitlin works as an animation compositor at Skyship Entertainment, an animation studio that specialises in children’s programming whose content on YouTube has over 6 million subscribers.

Kelly Bastow is a comics creator and commercial illustrator. Kelly illustrated The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy (Quirk Books, 2015); she has also drawn for the comics Lumberjanes, Adventure Time, and Capture Creatures. In 2017, her autobiographical comic Year Long Summer was nominated for an Ignatz Award.

Linda Rodriguez McRobbie signing Princesses Behaving Badly

Linda Rodriguez McRobbie is an American writer and journalist. She covers the stranger things, from surprising and unique conditions of memory to stories of alien abduction, DIY DNA labs to junk science laws, the ethics of pet ownership to whether invasive species are really so bad after all. Her work regularly appears in the Boston Globe Ideas section, the Guardian, Atlas Obscura, Smithsonian Magazine, and more.

Vic James signing Tarnished City

Vic lives in London’s Notting Hill, but her life is more action-adventure than rom-com. She studied History and English at Merton College, Oxford where Tolkien was once professor. Relocating to Rome, she completed her doctorate in the Vatican Secret Archives (they’re nothing like The Da Vinci Code), then spent five years living in Tokyo where she learned Japanese and worked as a journalist.

Anne Corlett signing The Space Between The Stars

Anne Corlett has an MA in Creative Writing from Bath Spa University and has won a number of awards for her short stories, including the H E Bates Award. Previously a criminal solicitor, she now writes full-time.

Marieke Nijkamp signing Before I Let Go

Marieke Nijkamp was born and raised in the Netherlands. A lifelong student of stories, language, and ideas, she is more or less proficient in about a dozen languages and holds degrees in philosophy, history, and medieval studies. She is a storyteller, dreamer, globe-trotter, geek. Her debut young adult novel This Is Where It Ends, a contemporary thriller that follows four teens over the course of the fifty-four minutes of a school shooting, was a #1 New York Times bestseller.
