This small collection is now SOLD OUT. We have no plans at this time to go back to press.
Janet Jia-Ee Chui is an illustrator from Singapore whose normal
life was derailed when she discovered the genres of fantasy art and
literature. Growing up where she did, attempting a career in the arts
(much less the fantastic arts) was considered a madwoman's dream.
Things haven't changed much, but she is less easily discouraged now.
Her fantasy art has appeared in children's card games and various
magazines like Challenging Destiny and Vogue Australia.
Chui recently won the illustration categories in the Strange Horizons 2003 Readers' Choice Awards.
She has drawn and painted subjects ranging from children's portraits to
humorous cartoons to fantasy role-playing games for the big kids. She
also produces paintings for private collections. Chui moved to North
Carolina in February 2004 to be with husband and writer Jason Erik
Lundberg. She is almost constantly working on paintings, and writes
during her free time. Her story "Black Fish" was recently published in
the zine Say..., and received an Honorable Mention in volume 18 of The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror.

Jason Erik Lundberg once read all of Stephen King's The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon
and got shot at in the same afternoon. (He also once visited a
Singaporean mangrove swamp and ate raw eel during a different
afternoon.) He was born in Brooklyn, but has called North Carolina home
for the past sixteen years. His fiction and non-fiction have appeared
in such places as Strange Horizons, Fishnet, The Green Man Review, Fantastic Metropolis, Intracities (ed. Michael Jasper), Electric Velocipede and the Serbian fiction magazine Znak Sagite. His story "Songstress" garnered an Honorable Mention in volume 17 of the Year's Best Fantasy and Horror.
Lundberg is a graduate of the 2002 Clarion Writers' Workshop,
and recently completed his M.A. in Creative Writing at NCSU. In March
2004, he was married to artist and writer Janet Chui, whom he met at
Clarion, and they live in the Raleigh area with their pet dwarf
hamsters and many books. He has taught fiction writing at the NCSU Young Writers' Workshop, and participated in the 2004 Strange Horizons Workshop at Rockaway Beach, Oregon.
