BENJAMIN NAPELEE is a writer living in the hot desert of Arizona. He is currently a columnist at Maudlin House, where he searches far and wide through the Internet for writers who deserve to be noticed. He can't wait for the day when he'll be able to put "bestselling author" in his Twitter bio. He is currently in the process of polishing up his first novel.
RALKA F. SKJERSETH is a card-carrying Lacanian whose soul is made of Valyrian steel. She loves Tolstoy’s idea of anarcho-pacifism that anarchism should be manifested with no coercion, and her music preference could switch from Trash Talk to Balmorhea really quick. She writes for zines and publishings sometimes when she’s not revolting, and her misadventures can be found at @raijaarseth.
