Pi, Tony

Tony was born in Taipei, Taiwan, and once lived behind his grand­father’s printing press business. In Mandarin his last name is pronounced “Bee,” but when he emigrated to Canada, it was trans­literated as “Pi,” which sounds much better as “Pie.” He studied linguistics at university and knows a thing or two about English dialects in Canada, eh? (He’ll crack a smile if you call him Doctor Pi.) But it is because of his love of books, games, and manga, that he now writes fantasy and science fiction.

He’s been afraid of heights ever since he fell off an embankment and broke his jaw as a kid, but while visiting the Grand Canyon, he finally decided to conquer his fear and tackled the glass-floored Skywalk. He found his courage by imagining he was walking on mile-high stilts and made it across, eyes open.

An active Sherlockian for more than 20 years with Calgary's The Singular Society of the Baker Street Dozen, he was designated a Master Bootmaker in 2006 by the Canada's national Sherlock Holmes Society.

Charles V. Prepolec was born in 1966 and is a native of Calgary, AB, Canada. He is a freelance writer, editor and reviewer. His articles, interviews, artwork and reviews have appeared in Scarlet Street, Sherlock, All-Hallows, and Canadian Holmes as well as fanzines Peladon Press and Into the Vortex.

Along with his friend and frequent collaborator Jeff Campbell, he has edited two previous Sherlock Holmes anthologies - Curious Incidents Vols. 1&2. He maintains his own Sherlock Holmes website bakerstreetdozen.com.

An avid reader from childhood, early obsessions included comic books, Doc Savage reprints, Burroughs’’ John Carter, Fleming’’s James Bond and John Norman’s Gor series. He has always had an appreciation for the works of Jules Verne, Victor Hugo, H.G. Wells, E. A. Poe, Bram Stoker, H.P. Lovecraft, and far too many others to mention. More recent interests include classic weird fiction and contemporary horror anthologies from small press publishers, although his favourite authors come from a variety of genres and include George MacDonald Fraser, Reginald Hill, Terry Pratchett, Kim Newman, Simon Clark, Steve Hockensmith, and Tim Lebbon.

In the mid-1980s a chance encounter with the Renegade Press Cases of Sherlock Holmes comic books and a television broadcast of the Granada Sherlock Holmes series sparked an eduring fascination with Arthur Conan Doyle's Great Detective, with a particular interest in film, television and pastiche interpretations of the character. An active member of Calgary’’s local Sherlock Holmes society The Singular Society of the Baker Street Dozen since 1987, Charles is also a member of Canada’’s national Sherlock Holmes group The Bootmakers of Toronto, who in 2006 awarded him Canada’’s highest Sherlockian honour with the designation of Master Bootmaker. He has attended Sherlockian conferences in New York, London, Indianapolis and Toronto, and also spoken about Sherlock Holmes on local and national radio. His collection of Sherlockiana has appeared on display in Theatre Calgary’’s gallery during their 2005 staging of William Gillette’’s play Sherlock Holmes.

Leaving behind University studies in History and Education in 1989 he opened Calgary’’s only, now defunct, mystery specialty bookstore Mad For A Mystery, then went on to work for Smithbooks (where he met his wonderfully understanding wife Kristen), Books on Cassette, and Positive Concepts before settling in as operations manager for The Movie Poster Shop in 2001. A major film and television buff, favourites include classic adventure, screwball comedy, mystery and horror films (Universal and Hammer), Doctor Who, Torchwood, and Star Trek. On Sunday afternoons you can frequently find Charles down the pub, Guinness in hand and cigarettes within reach, blissfully chattering with Jeff Campbell about any or all of the above.

Rimar, Mike

Mike Rimar lives in Whitby, Ontario. He lives with his wife, Kat, and two young daughters.

Beyond that, he is a man of mystery, even to himself. That he writes at all is most baffling since he can barely spell and gram­mar makes his head hurt. And science fiction! A taco puzzle wrapped in an enigma tortilla shell: only an average student in school, science was far from his best subject. He does like a good cooking show and has been observed staring at non-stick frying pans too long to be healthy.

Exactly when he got the foolish notion of becoming a writer is open to conjecture, but somehow he did and has been pub­lished in Writers of the Future XXI, Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show, online e-zines and other anthologies, as well as Tesseracts Fifteen: A Case of Quite Curious Tales.

Rebecca is a graduate of the Clarion Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers' Workshop (Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Suzy McKee Charnas, Nancy Kress, Andy Duncan, Kelly Link, Gordon Van Gelder, and Jeff Ford).

"For better or worse, I was born and raised on Earth (like many of us), where I discovered a few things: hobbits, Spock, dating, horseback riding, corporate America and Baudrillard.

"Over time, I've learned to travel and became sadly addicted. I think now, if I have the chance, I'll live in Kobe, Japan. Briefly, I've lived in lots of other places: California, Melbourne, Australia, D.C., Connecticut, Virginia and Aix-en-Provence, France. No matter where I'm living, I'm a Colorado girl, so branded behind the left knee. Denver happens to be where I am, as I write you this note.

"In-between and while working, and after kind of growing up, I did my undergrad at the University of Denver and a Master's there in Journalism/Mass Communications. I also went to the University of Southern California and received a Master's in International Relations so maybe I've developed a fetish for chalkboards and classrooms. Beyond that, well, I've done a lot of technical writing for places few people have ever heard of outside of IT, except MapQuest — where you may have downloaded a map.

"Today, when I'm not writing, I read everything and enjoy works by Haruki Murakami, Jorge Luis Borges and Italo Calvino or young adult novelists like Philip Pullman or Science Fiction authors the Strugatsky brothers, Richard Adams, Greg Egan, Sheri Tepper and ...that list is almost endless, or a fantasy novel by Susanna Clarke and shorts by Kelly Link or Bruce Holland Rogers. And then, when not writing or reading, there is the world of film with directors: Kurosawa, Tarkovsky, Kubrick, Herzog, McAbee's offbeat musical The American Astronaut, and Miyazaki's eight anime films or Otomo's Akira or Oshii's Ghost in the Shell or well, that list also is too long. Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story is a recent personal favorite. Getting outside once in a while is also a good thing so I'm a runner and also walk the dog, as long as there are no squirrels. The dog wants to dine on live squirrel; she dreams of it and even runs up trees in her sleep.

"That's probably more than you wanted to know about me so I'll stop here. If you get the chance to read Forbidden Cargo and the others soon to come, more than anything, I hope the actionquest gives you some small pleasure and strikes a flame in you for a new train of thought."

Sinclair, Alison

"I was born in Colchester, England, raised in Edinburgh, Scotland, and Victoria, B.C. I graduated from the University of Victoria with a B.Sc. Honors Chemistry, Major Physics, and from McMaster University with a Ph.D. in Biochemistry. As a post-Ph.D. fling I attended the (alas no longer extant) Writing I workshop at the Banff Center School of Fine Arts. Subsequently I worked as a postdoctoral scientist in Boston, USA and Leeds, England, before entering the University of Calgary in 1995 to study Medicine. I graduated in May 1999, having taken a study leave to write CAVALCADE, spent a year as a resident in Anatomic Pathology at Calgary and worked as the Editorial Fellow at the Canadian Medical Association Journal in Ottawa, until June 2001.

My first "novel", lost in one of those moves, was a handwritten Robinsonade entitled Shipwrecked on an Island, produced when I was eight. I glommed onto science fiction during a summer spent in Edmonton when I was thirteen, when I discovered John Wyndham’s novels in the bookshelf owned by the son of the family whose house we were renting. My first published novel, LEGACIES, came out in February 1995 from Millennium, the science fiction imprint of Orion, London - which cuts a fairly long story short, since it was five years plus in the writing and another two in the revising. It garnered good reviews and a spot on Locus’ Best of Year List. BLUEHEART was completed during my first year of medical school, and published in November 1996. CAVALCADE was published in November 1998 and shortlisted for the Arthur C. Clarke Award for that year. My fourth solo novel, OPAL, dealing with the trials and tribulations of a shamanistic practitioner on a poorly terraformed planet, has started to make the rounds of publishers and I am easing into my fifth, working title WAIORA.

As to why I write science fiction: To indulge a passion for knowledge of all kinds and science and medicine in particular. I have an excuse to read about everything from oceanography to nanotechnology, from color theory to the history of microscopy. I enjoy world-building - the devastated ecology of Burdania, the jungle of Taridwyn (both in LEGACIES), the ocean world of BLUEHEART, the alien spacecraft of CAVALCADE and the ice and tundra of OPAL, and the various worlds of WAIORA. And I like to be able to ditch all assumptions and conventional wisdom and start entirely from scratch, running my fictional "thought experiments" (Ursula Le Guin’s words) according to any parameters I please. Science fiction gives my imagination elbow room.

Before writing took over my "spare time", I fenced competitively, competing with the McMaster Varsity Squad, and studied archery and Aikido in an admittedly dilatory fashion. I have been a member of a variety of large choruses, most recently the Leeds Philharmonic Chorus and the Calgary Festival Chorus. I read voraciously and omnivorously, swim, and dabble in website building.

Alison currently lives in Montreal, Canada.
