Jason P. Hunt – a fan of science fiction since age 5, when he saw a guy in a gold shirt and a guy in a blue shirt, and the guy in the blue shirt had pointed ears… A fan of science fiction ranging from Heinlein and Asimov to Roddenberry and Rockne and everything in between, he is the producer/director of the rom-com The Apology Dance and author of the sci-fi novella The Hero At the End Of His Rope. His short film Species Felis Dominarus was a finalist in the Sci Fi Channel’s 2007 Exposure competition, and he has two awards from the Missouri Broadcasters Association along with several Addy awards and citations. He also likes dogs. And bacon.

Jennifer Wise grew up a Star Wars girl in a family of Trekkies. She’s an avid consumer of fantasy-themed media, tabletop games, DC Comics, movies of nearly any sort, and science fiction stories. She once got kicked out of 11th grade English class for arguing with her teacher over the report that her life’s ambition of “strategic use of nano-machines to gradually break down and relocate the material of the Earth, thus destroying the planet”, claiming it DID fit the criteria as ‘possible within our lifetime’.
Ironically, Jennifer went into History instead of Science, and is currently teaching high schoolers, inspiring joy and wonder through subtle use of Bill Nye episodes and Batman quotes.
Mackenna Riley grew up watching the Adam West Batman TV series with her dad and has loved all things comic book and sci-fi related ever since. Mackenna is now a cake decorator, theater goer and techie, musician, and somewhat of a Star Wars fan. She also moonlights as a galactic assassin, and many refer to her as a “professional.”
Mindy Inlow is the Intern Without Portfolio, who is still alive. She escaped from the dog park of Southern California where she served coffee to The Terminator, Buffy, and Kanan Jarrus (to name a few) and taught art to Pluto Nash’s children. Should she ever be stranded on a desert island, her science-fiction movie star companion would be Harrison Ford. With a degree in Art and English, she brings her love of wordsmithing to all things sci-fi and would eventually apply her art skills to it as well. Her passion is discovering new stories and new heroes and possibly build her portfolio.
Leslie Walker is a member of the old guard, one whose love of sci-fi flowered during those golden years in the late 70s and early 80s, when Alien, Star Wars, Blade Runner and The Terminator came to screen. Since then, her interests have expanded beyond sci-fi to include pretty much any movie, TV show, or book that contains blood or mayhem. By day, she masquerades as a quasi-normal business consultant; by night, she can be found glued to her Kindle, visiting other worlds.
Thomas Townley lives in Kingman, KS. A fan of all stuff genre. SciFi? Check. Fantasy? Check. MST3k? Pro Wrestling? Double check. MMORPG? Y.E.S. Comic books? Has long boxes full. Conventions? At least four a year. Thomas knows genre…and cookies.
After twenty years in retail bookstore management, Ann Laabs belatedly realized that bookselling was not the Road to Riches she’d once thought. Now she works in legal support, supporting people smarter than herself. Along with her spousal unit Dave Margosian, she lives with two cat/sloth hybrids in Milwaukee,near beautiful Lake Michican.
As life paths go, Dave Margosian‘s is rather similar to Mr. Harvey’s. Dave went to art school. He’s worked in bookstores since 1986, yet continues to enjoy doing so. He’s even had dalliances in the performing arts. Yet, through it all, Dave’s love for Sci-Fi in all it’s myriad forms has prevailed. His current plan is to take the voiceover world by storm, with an ultimate goal of voicing characters for Pixar.
