Jo Walton is the author of Hugo and Nebula-award-winning novel Among Others, as well as several other novels. She comes from Wales but lives in Montreal where the books and food are more varied. She reads a lot and writes about old books on Tor.com. She is married to Dr. Emmet O'Brien and they live together in a charming but cluttered apartment in walking distance of the metro. Her grown up son and his girlfriend and two cats live in their own apartment nearby. It worries her slightly from time to time that while the world remains so imperfect her life is so exactly as she always dreamed it might be.
Joan Slonczewski researches bacteria in extreme environments and writes hard science fiction about women of color as scientists, and diverse sexualities. Her latest book, The Highest Frontier(Tor Books, September 2011) depicts a Cuban-American woman going to college in a space habitat. Slonczewski's Campbell-award winning classic, A Door into Ocean (Tor Books, 1986; Campbell Award) creates a world covered entirely by ocean, inhabited by an all-female race of purple people who use genetic engineering to defend their unique ecosystem. Slonczewski's early work was inspired by the works of Ursula Le Guin, Octavia Butler, Anne McCaffrey, and Tanith Lee. Slonczewski teaches biology at Kenyon College, including the notorious course "Biology in Science Fiction."
