Michael Arsenault has been writing screenplays, almost exclusively, for the past six years. Two of them, Twist of the Wrist and It Won’t Bring Her Back, placed quite high in Hollywood’s prestigious Nicholl Fellowship screenplay competition. Since 1996 he has been writing and illustrating pieces for What the F***? ‘zine (Chompers Comics). He is also one of the ‘zine’s co-editors. From 2007 to 2008 he wrote and drew “Untitled Conversations,” a monthly comic strip for MensuHell Magazine (Francis Hervieux Productions). Most recently, Michael had a story published in Frankenstein Réassemblé, an anthology by Rotor/400 Coups.

Michael Arsenault has no website, no blog, no Facebook page. Clearly, the man has something to hide.

Teresa Frohock Raised in a small town, Teresa Frohock learned to escape to other worlds through the fiction collection of her local library. Although Teresa has been reading fantasy and science fiction since she was twelve, her fascination with the grotesque extends back into childhood. Whenever she went to a carnival, she was the first one at the tent that housed the freak-show. She wanted to see the two-headed (chicken, snake, fetus, fill-in-the-blank) and was always disappointed when it wasn’t alive–it seemed like such a rip-off.

Our friends over at FBC posted an article about us.

“I’m always looking out for new, cool projects on Kickstarter and this one titled “Winter In The City” caught my eye. Here’s what it says on their main page:

“The City. Noisy, crowded, ever in motion, the City is an unrecognized character in Urban Fantasy. Much more than just a setting, the City is the ever-present constant companion to the characters in the genre. Sometimes antagonist, sometime protagonist, the city surrounds and engulfs a good Urban Fantasy yarn.”

“Winter in the City: A Collection of Urban Fantasy Tales will be a celebration of stories that take place in different cities around the world during the bleak—sometimes harsh—season of winter.”

With such an intriguing setup and my interest in urban fantasy, I asked author R.B. Wood if he could tell us about the inception of this anthology…”
