If March comes in like a lion, does it have to be cowardly? Perhaps so, if our theme is Oz Reimagined: New Tales from the Emerald City and Beyond; a new anthology co-edited by Doug Cohen and JJA. And look what Toto dragged in — two of the best writers working in speculative fiction today: Robin Wasserman and Ken Liu!
Ken Liu is an author and translator of speculative fiction, as well as a lawyer and programmer. His fiction has appeared in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Asimov’s, Analog, Clarkesworld, Lightspeed, and Strange Horizons, among other places. He has won a Nebula, a Hugo, a World Fantasy Award, and a Science Fiction & Fantasy Translation Award, and been nominated for the Sturgeon and the Locus awards. He lives with his family near Boston, Massachusetts.
Robin Wasserman is the author of several books for children and young adults, including The Book of Blood and Shadow, the Cold Awakening Trilogy, the Chasing Yesterday Trilogy, and Hacking Harvard. Her books have appeared on the ALA Quick Picks and Popular Paperbacks lists as well as the Indie Next list, and her Seven Deadly Sins series was adapted into a television miniseries. She is a former children’s book editor who lives and writes in Brooklyn. Find her at robinwasserman.com or on Twitter @robinwasserman.
John Joseph Adams is the bestselling editor of many anthologies, such as The Mad Scientist’s Guide to World Domination, Epic: Legends of Fantasy, Other Worlds Than These, Armored, Under the Moons of Mars, Brave New Worlds, Wastelands, The Living Dead, The Living Dead 2, By Blood We Live, Federations, The Improbable Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, and The Way of the Wizard. Forthcoming work includes Wastelands 2, Dead Man’s Hand, and Robot Uprisings. John is a four-time finalist for the Hugo Award and the World Fantasy Award. He has been called “the reigning king of the anthology world” by Barnes & Noble, and his books have been lauded as some of the best anthologies of all time. In addition to his anthology work, John is also the editor of Lightspeed Magazine and Nightmare Magazine, and he is the co-host of Wired.com’s The Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy podcast.

Many illustrations he solicited for the magazine have appeared in the prestigious Spectrum Art series. Douglas is also a writer. His stories have appeared in or are forthcoming in Fantastic Stories of the Imagination, Interzone, and Weird Tales. He recently finished writing his first novel. Oz Reimagined marks his first anthology. Find him on Twitter @Douglas_Cohen.
