Calah Singleton

Calah Singleton is a writer and editor originally from the east coast of the United States. When not writing or reading, she enjoys playing Irish trad music on her fiddle and continuing her (so far fruitless) search for a glimpse of a hedgehog. She lives in London with her husband and their spirited cat.

Her debut novel, WISTERIA CHUMLEIGH, is a pleasant blend of cosy crime, fantasy and millennial ennui.

Cassidy Ellis Salter

Cassidy (they/them) is the author of two novels for younger readers, THE BONE SNATCHER and WHERE THE WOODS END (published as Charlotte Salter). They are currently working on a dark fantasy trilogy which is heavy on bones, sarcasm, and intelligent people making noticeably unintelligent decisions.

Cassidy graduated from the University of Warwick with a BA in English Literature and Creative Writing in 2012 and an MA in Writing in 2015. After stints in a digital agency and as a freelance copywriter, they now work in marketing at the same time as writing books. When they’re not busy writing about bones and queer power struggles they can be found roller skating, performing as their very occasional drag king persona, or mudlarking in the Thames. One day they will find a way to do all three at once.

Kari Sperring

Kari Sperring grew up dreaming of joining the musketeers and saving France, only to discover that the company had been disbanded in 1776 and anyway never admitted women. Disappointed, instead she studied Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic at Cambridge University, going on to do a PhD in the same department about 11th century Welsh foreign policy (yes, really).

As K.L/Kari Maund she has written and published five books and many articles on Celtic and Viking history and co-authored a book on the history and real people behind her favourite novel, The Three Musketeers (with Phil Nanson).

Alongside this, she went on writing fiction (she completed her first novel at the age of 8 – it was 12 pages long and about ponies), and began selling short fiction in 2007. Kari’s first novel, LIVING WITH GHOSTS, was published by DAW Books in March 2009. It was awarded the Sydney J. Bounds Award for Best Newcomer 2010 by the British Fantasy Society, was short-listed for the IAFA William L. Crawford Award 2010, and made the Honor List for the 2010 James Tiptree Jr Award. Her second novel, THE GRASS KING’S CONCUBINE, was also published by DAW, in 2012.

Kari is currently at work on a sequel to THE GRASS KING’S CONCUBINE, and on a medieval, Welsh-themed Sekrit Projekt.

Brandon Sanderson

United Kingdom and British Commonwealth only: Represented in these territories on behalf of  Jabberwocky Literary Agency.

Brandon Sanderson is the author of six novels. His debut novel a stand-alone  fantasy, ELANTRIS, was published by Tor in 2005 and was followed by the highly acclaimed Mistborn Trilogy,  comprising THE FINAL EMPIRE (2006), THE WELL OF ASCENSION (2007) and THE HERO OF AGES (2008). In 2011, Tor published a fourth book in the Mistborn universe, THE ALLOY OF LAW. He has also written two YA novels for Scholastic with further titles in the pipeline. The four Mistborn novels were published in the UK by Gollancz (2009-11).

Following the death of fantasy author Robert Jordan in 2007, Brandon was chosen to complete the final volumes in Jordan’s huge and epic sequence The Wheel of Time: THE GATHERING STORM (2009), TOWERS OF MIDNIGHT (2010), and A MEMORY OF LIGHT (2013). Published by Tor in the US, they were published by Orbit Books in the UK.

Brandon’s newest fantasy series, The Stormlight Archive, began with THE WAY OF KINGS, published by Gollancz in 2010.
The fourth novel in the projected ten-book series, RHYTHM OF WAR, was published in 2020. The first two Stormlight novels won the Gemmell Legend Award (in 2011 and 2015).

In addition to Brandon’s adult fantasy novels, Orion has published his Alcatraz series in 2013: ALCATRAZ VERSUS THE EVIL LIBRARIANSALCATRAZ VERSUS THE SCRIVENER’S BONESALCATRAZ VERSUS THE KNIGHTS OF CRYSTALLIA, and ALCATRAZ VERSUS THE SHATTERED LENS. The novels were also collected as an Omnibus. In May 2013, Orion Children’s published THE RITHMATIST.

Gollancz also published two of Brandon’s novellas in the UK – LEGION and THE EMPEROR’S SOUL – as eBooks and a collected Hardcover. Starting in September 2013, Gollancz has been publishing Brandon’s new Reckoners super-hero series (published in the US by Delcorte Press).

In 2023, Gollancz started publishing Brandon’s ‘Secret Project‘ novels, which were originally launched in a record-breaking Kickstarter project.

Sanderson’s eerie second fantasy (after 2005’s Elantris), set in a mist-haunted, ash-ridden world, pits Kelsier, “the Survivor of Hathsin,” against the immortal Lord Ruler’s 1,000-year domination of both the Great Houses and their serflike “skaa.” Through Allomancy acquired in the Ruler’s most hellish prison, Kelsier can “burn” 10 metals internally, fueling superhuman powers he uses to assemble rebels in a loose plan to destroy the nobility, the empire and the Lord Ruler himself. Kelsier uses Vin, a street urchin with the same Mistborn powers Kelsier possesses, to infiltrate the Great Houses’ society, where she falls in love with philosopher prince Elend Venture. This mystico-metallurgical fantasy combines Vin’s coming-of-age-in-magic and its well-worn theme of revolt against oppression with copious mutilations, a large-scale cast of thieves, cutthroats, conniving nobles and exotic mutants. The fast-paced action scenes temper Vin’s interminable ballroom intrigues, while the characters, though not profoundly drawn, have a raw stereotypic appeal.’ — Publisher’s Weekly.
