John C. Wright is a retired attorney, newspaperman and newspaper editor. The spectacular unsuccess of these ventures drove him into science fiction writing. He presently works as a writer in Virginia, where he lives in fairytale-like happiness with his wife, the authoress L. Jagi Lamplighter, and their three children: Orville, Wilbur and Just Wright. His works include The Golden Age (2002), Last Guardian of Everness (2004) and Nebula Award finalist Orphans of Chaos. His authorized sequel to A. E. van Vogt’s World of Null-A is called Null-A Continuum. His short fiction has appeared in anthologies and magazines, including Year’s Best SF 3 (David Hartwell, Ed.), Year’s Best Science Fiction (Gardner Dozois, Ed.), Year’s Best Short Novels (Johnathan Strahan, Ed.), The Night Lands (Andy W. Robertson, Ed.), Absolute Magnitude and Asimov’s Science Fiction.
Pop culture devotee Leigh Adams Wright is often teased about the size of her purse but, curiously, no one ever complains when they need a Band-Aid or a nail file. See her previous work in other Smart Pop anthologies Finding Serenity, Alias Assumed and Totally Charmed.

Larry Yaeger uses computers to solve hard and interesting problems, from flow fields over the space shuttle to special effects for “The Last Starfighter,” “2010” and “Labyrinth”; to providing a computer “voice” for Koko the gorilla; to developing the world’s first usable handwriting recognizer for second-generation Newtons and Mac OS X’s “Inkwell”; to evolving machine intelligence in an Artificial Life system called Polyworld. He teaches programming and Artificial Life at Indiana University, and plays videogames and reads and watches entirely too much science fiction. And is eternally grateful to Levi for putting up with him!
