Guests Confirmed for 2015
Emma Bull’s reputation was made with her first novel, War for the Oaks, the story of a musician caught up in a battle by the forces of Faerie for control of Minneapolis. Her third, Bone Dance, was the first book to be a finalist for the Hugo, the Nebula, the Philip K. Dick, and the World Fantasy Award―no one can decide whether it should be shelved under science fiction or fantasy. She was part of Cats Laughing, a psychedelic roots-jazz-rock band that included novelists Steven Brust and Adam Stemple, and the Flash Girls, an acoustic goth-folk duo that won the 1995 Minnesota Music Award for Best World Folk Group. She is the producer for Shadow Unit, a webfiction project she shares with Elizabeth Bear, Sarah Monette, Will Shetterly, Leah Bobet, Holly Black, Amanda Downum, and others. And yes, for everyone who asks, she is working on a sequel to Territory, her novel set in Tombstone in 1881.
In her spare time, Emma knits, runs, bicycles, and watches way too much genre TV.
Will Shetterly, author Dogland, Elsewhere, and other stories, lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota with his beloved wife, Emma Bull, and the two cats who rule them, Toby and Barnabas.
