Publisher Description:
How do you create the types of communities you want to see more of in the world? This is the question Microcosm Publishing has tried to answer for almost a quarter century. Do it yourself, we say most often, and our books aim to show you how: read, learn, and grow your world so you can change it. But obviously it's more complicated than that. This project is dedicated to showing that baggage, working through it, and creating that ideal community that we are all in this for.

In her spare time she devours pop-culture and genre fiction like a mogwai after midnight. Follow her on twitter at @Cyn0NymSytes, Set: - Set Sytes was born in the misty, Arthurian woods of England and was raised by bears. He grew up learning how to do and be many things at the same time, including slaying monsters, rescuing damsels in distress (who turned out to be neither in distress nor, in fact, damsels), and commanding great armies (the strategy involved inevitably being "everybody charge at the enemy"). As the Real World struck with a calamitous clang, Set was found wandering around in the desolate aftermath, completely uncertain about what was now expected of him. He faffed and stumbled around for an embarrassingly long time (sometimes failing quite spectacularly) and then finally turned his hand to the only thing he remembered being any good at as a kid: writing. He was relieved to break the curse of never having finished anything in his life, when he finished his first novel. Which was okay-ish. Set has since authored many stories of darkness and weirdness and flights of fancy, including the sci-fi/fantasy/western novel WULF, the YA pirate fantasy India Bones and the Ship of the Dead, the thoroughly twisted dystopian thriller Moral Zero, and the fantasy/horror short story collections of Faces in the Dark and Born to be Weird. Set requests politely that you don't put onions anywhere near his food.Wilde, Lisa: - Lisa Wilde has a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, an M.A. from Columbia University, and an MsEd from Hunter College. She was inspired to create "Yo, Miss" after joining the staff at Wildcat Academy, a second chance high school in New York City. A Wisconsin native, Lisa moved to Brooklyn in her twenties and still lives there with her husband and son. More about Lisa can be found on her website.

The other chickens get called by various names, but it is hard to tell them apart.
