    Kate Tyte was born in Bath, England. She worked as an archivist for over ten years, before moving to Lisbon where she works as an English teacher. Her non-fiction has appeared in various British history and genealogy magazines. Her essays have appeared in Slightly Foxed, and her fiction in STORGY, Riggwelter, The Fiction Pool, and in Madness Heart Press's anthology ‘Ghastly Gastronomy’. She is a book reviewer for STORGY and The Short Story.


    Alexandra is a bilingual voice actress and writer who lives in the Netherlands. She loves everything to do with stories, especially creative and playful horror. Her favourite voices to do are witches, goblins and crazy computers. When she is not voicing, writing or mummy-ing (which is all the time, really) she directs plays that she adapted from classic novels such as Pride and Prejudice, Death on the Nile and One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest.
    She also has a BA in Japanese Language and Culture and a Film and Photographic Studies Master.

    Duncan is one-half of the editing team on The Other Stories, and he occasionally writes stories that no-one reads. But mostly he makes music that no one listens to, as part of his indie record label, Temporal Recordings. All of this music is free, and can be found at temporalrecordings.wordpress.com.
