About the readers/performers:

Colin Dickey is the author, most recently, of Ghostland: An American History in Haunted Places (Viking), an exploration of some of the country's most haunted places, and what they tell us about the darker side of our history. He is also the author of Cranioklepty: Grave Robbing and the Search for Genius, which details the fates of several famous skulls that were stolen in the nineteenth century, and Afterlives of the Saints: Stories from the Ends of Faith. He is also the co-editor of The Morbid Anatomy Anthology, and has written for The Believer, The New Republic, Lapham's Quarterly, and elsewhere. He currently teaches creative writing at National University.

Jiz Lee has worked in the adult film industry for over a decade, spanning independent erotic films and hardcore gonzo pornography. A versatile performer and key player in the queer porn movement, Jiz has received industry nods and feminist porn awards, and in 2015 was honored at The Trans 100. (Jiz is nonbinary and uses the pronouns they/them.) Their writing has appeared in The Feminist Porn Book, Best Sex Writing, and Global Information Society Watch: Sexual Rights and the Internet. They are the co-editor of the Porn Studies Journal Special Issue: Porn and Labour. Their first book, Coming Out Like a Porn Star was named “Best Sex Work Books” by Reason Magazine and is the largest collection of essays written by porn professionals about their industry. Learn more at ComingOutLikeaPornStar.com. (They also urge you to vote NO on Prop 60.)

Juliana Delgado Lopera is an award-winning Colombian writer/educator/oral-historian based in San Francisco. The recipient of the 2014 Jackson Literary award, and a finalist of the Clark-Gross Novel award, she’s the author of ¡Cuéntamelo! an illustrated bilingual collection of oral histories by LGBT Latin@ immigrants awarded the Regen Ginaa Grant from Galería de la Raza and a 2014 National Queer Arts Festival Grant from the Queer Cultural Center. Her work has been published in Four Way Review, The Bold Italic, Weird Sister, Revista Canto, Transfer Magazine, Raspa Magazine, Black Girl Dangerous, and SF Weekly among others.

Wonder Dave is a writer and performer from Minneapolis, MN, now living in California. He has toured the country performing at poetry venues, comedy shows, schools, cabarets, science fiction conventions, burlesque shows, and bowling alleys. He is the host of San Francisco’s Literary Pop. He is a fixture at the underground variety show Tourettes Without Regrets. Find him online at WonderDave.org

The Los Angeles Times called Micah Perks’ first novel, We Are Gathered Here (1997, St. Martin’s), “a tightly woven story that is as fanciful as it is grimly real.” Her memoir, Pagan Time, came out in paper in 2009 from Counterpoint, has been translated into Korean and is an audio book from audible.
