Chelsea Quinn Yarbro- An amazingly prolific author, Yarbro began with the first of the Charles Spotted mystery series, Ogilvie, Tallant & Moon in 1976. She has written numerous series including historical mystery/ghost (Chesterton Holte, Gentleman Haunt series), western (Jason Russell series), historical horror (The Saint-Germain Cycle), fantasy (book 2 in the Merchant Prince series) science-fiction (book four in the Crisis of Empire series) and dozens of novels and short stories, written under her own and various pen names. In 2009 she won the Bram Stoker Award for Lifetime Achievement. For me, I became acquainted with Yarbro’s work with her 1980 novelization for the 1981 zombie thriller Dead & Buried.

For decades Lansdale has been producing some of the finest fiction, writing in the mystery, crime, horror, science-fiction and western genres, and always with a wicked sense of humor.
