About the Author
Francis Breakspear often wishes he was merely a convenient fiction, but while he is sometimes far more real than he thinks he should be, he has trouble with consensus reality at the best of times. He is often not sure if someone `else' is `writing him'; which gets him into all sorts of painful, and ultimately irresolvable, Cartesian gymnastics. His novel about `Evil' Black Magicians in 1990s Britain has been a work in progress for years and will perhaps see the light of day sometime in this decade, although Francis said that in the 1990s too, so don't hold your breath waiting. Francis and Dave were born in the same year and town, were educated at the same places and have been variably good friends or at each other's throats since childhood.
A social scientist, writer, inventor, amateur chemist, painter, pagan and magician, Kate Hoolu was born in France in 1971, and has dual nationality due to having one English, one French and one Danish parent. Her interests include liminal writings, radical politics, anthropology, sociology, surrealism, entheogenics, semiotics, memetics, emetics, emic-etics, film/theatre, golf, drinking vodka and lying at least once in any biography. She grumbles when labeled as a feminist, but tends to grumble at being labeled at all.
In addition to being a published academic researcher of various magical areas and writing for various websites and magazines worldwide Dave Evans is an ordained Pope of the Discordian Society and a Reverend of the Universal Life Church (both very serious non-serious religions), enjoys traveling and eats a lot of peanut butter.
