About the Author

Ray Russell was born in 1924 in Chicago, Illinois, and served in the U. S. Army in the South Pacific during World War II. After the war, he attended the Chicago Conservatory of Music and the Goodman Memorial Theatre and soon became executive editor of Playboy, where he played a vital role in turning the magazine into a showcase for imaginative fiction. His first novel, The Case Against Satan, was published in 1962, and his best known work, Sardonicus, was called by Stephen King "perhaps the finest example of the modern gothic ever written." Russell received the World Fantasy Award for Lifetime Achievement in 1991. He passed away in Los Angeles in 1999. Laird Barron is an award-winning writer of horror fiction. He has received three Shirley Jackson Awards, for his collections The Imago Sequence and Other Stories and Occultation and Other Stories and for his novella Mysterium Tremendum. He has also been nominated for the Crawford Award, Sturgeon Award, International Horror Guild Award, World Fantasy Award, and the Locus Award.
