About The Authors

ROBERT DENTON III lives in the New River Valley of Virginia with his wife and three spoiled cats. He’s written extensively for the Legend of the Five Rings setting, including dozens of short stories, contributions to the fourth and fifth editions of the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Game, and his first novella, The Sword and the Spirits. As an author of tabletop roleplaying games, his works include Tiny Taverns: A Slice-Of-Life Fantasy Roleplaying Game and the underwater fantasy setting Destiny of Tides.

MARIE BRENNAN is a former anthropologist and folklorist who shamelessly pillages her academic fields for inspiration. She recently misapplied her professors' hard work to The Night Parade of 100 Demons and the short novel Driftwood. She is the author of the Hugo Award-nominated Victorian adventure series The Memoirs of Lady Trent along with several other series, over seventy short stories, and the New Worlds series of worldbuilding guides; as half of M.A. Carrick, she has written the epic Rook and Rose trilogy, beginning with The Mask of Mirrors

D G LADEROUTE lives in Ontario, Canada. Besides writing official fiction for the Legend of the Five Rings setting, he has been an extensive contributor to the roleplaying game for both AEG and FFG. His first novel-length work, a young-adult fantasy entitled Out of Time, was short-listed for the Prix Aurora Award.
