      About the readers/performers:

      Amber Benson co-wrote and directed the animated web-series, Ghosts of
      Albion, (with Christopher Golden) for the BBC. The duo then novelized
      the series in two books for Random House. Her first solo novel,
      Death's Daughter, was published by Penguin in 2009, and three sequels
      featuring Calliope Reaper-Jones have since been published. She also
      wrote a children's book called Among The Ghosts. As an actress, Benson
      spent three seasons as Tara Maclay on the cult show Buffy the Vampire
      Slayer. She has also written, produced, and directed three feature
      films, including Drones, which she co-directed with Adam Busch.

      Glen David Gold received his MFA for creative writing at the
      University of California at Irvine. His first novel, Carter Beats the
      Devil, has been translated into fourteen languages. His short stories
      and essays have appeared in McSweeney's, Playboy, and The New York
      Times Magazine. He lives in San Francisco with his wife, Alice Sebold.

      Rachel Kramer Bussel is a New York-based writer, editor, blogger, and
      event organizer. She's edited over 40 anthologies, including Best Sex
      Writing 2012, Women in Lust, Fast Girls, Obsessed: Erotic Romance for
      Women, The Mile High Club, Do Not Disturb: Hotel Sex Stories, and her
      own fiction has been published in over 100 collections, including Best
      American Erotica 2004 and 2006. She writes a biweekly sex column for
      SexIs Magazine and has appeared on The Martha Stewart Show and The
      Gayle King Show.

      Malinda Lo's first novel, Ash, a retelling of Cinderella with a
      lesbian twist, was a finalist for the William C. Morris YA Debut
      Award, the Andre Norton Award for YA Fantasy and Science Fiction, and
      the Lambda Literary Award. Her second novel, Huntress, a companion
      novel to Ash, is an ALA Best Book for Young Adults. Her young adult
      science fiction duology, beginning with Adaptation, will be published
      in fall 2012.

      Sarah Kuhn is the author of the geek romantic comedy novella One Con
      Glory, which has earned kudos from io9 and USA Today/Pop Candy and is
