Rachel Swirsky and P. H. Lee

Rachel Swirsky holds an MFA from the Iowa Writers Workshop where she, a California native, learned about both writing and snow. Last year, she traded the snow for the rain of Portland, Oregon, where she roams happily under overcast skies with the hipsters. Her fiction has appeared in venues including Tor.com, Asimov’s Magazine, and The Year’s Best Non-Required Reading. She’s published two collections: Through the Drowsy Dark (Aqueduct Press) and How the World Became Quiet (Subterranean Press). Her fiction has been nominated for the Hugo Award and the World Fantasy Award, and twice won the Nebula. Visit her website at rachelswirsky.com or support her Patreon at patreon.com/rachelswirsky.

P. H. Lee’s fiction has appeared in World’s Without Master and Disabled People Destroy Science Fiction. They live together with four housemates and three cats and only talk to their family when they want to.
