Vol. 5, No. 1

Volume 5, Number 1
Spring 2001

Robert Olen Butler has written ten novels and four volumes of short fiction, Tabloid Dreams, Had a Good Time, A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain, which won the 1993 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, and Severance, due in fall 2006. A collection of his lectures on creative writing, From Where You Dream, was published last year. He also has won two National Magazine Awards, one of them along with Zoetrope: All-Story for his story "Fair Warning," which he subsequently developed into a novel. He has written nine feature-length screenplays for six different studios and teaches creative writing at Florida State University.

Peter Greenaway was born in England. He trained as a painter, and began working as a film editor in 1965. In 1966 he started making his own films, including The Draughtsman's Contract; The Belly of an Architect; The Cook, The Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover; Prospero's Books; and The Pillow Book. His most recent film is Eight and a Half Women. His painting and artwork have been featured at galleries around the world, and his "Blackboard Paintings 1999," the basis for the artwork in this magazine, were most recently featured in a one-man show at the Galerie Fortlaan in Ghent, Belgium.

Kathy Hepinstall's novel, The House of Gentle Men, is available in paperback from HarperPerennial, and she is working on a new novel, To the Butterflies. "Queen Devil" is dedicated to Terry Brooks.

Sara Powers was raised in New England. She attended Bard College and Columbia University. Her stories have appeared in VLS, Story, Zoetrope: All-Story, and other magazines, as well as in the anthologies High Infidelity, New Stories from the South, and the Zoetrope: All-Story anthology. A former resident of New York City and Austin, Texas, she now lives in Venice, California.

Peter Rock is the author of the novels This Is the Place and Carnival Wolves. Originally from Utah, he now lives in Philadelphia with his wife, Ella. While they did honeymoon in a U.S. Forest Service cabin in Idaho, the character Melissa in "Stranger" bears no resemblance whatsoever to Ella.

James Thurber (December 8, 1894–November 2, 1961) joined the staff of the New Yorker in 1927. His contributions to that magazine, both as a writer and as an artist, were instrumental in changing the character of American humor. His work has been collected in more than thirty volumes and has spawned adaptations for the stage, television, and film. Thurber House (www.ThurberHouse.org) continues his legacy and has awarded the Thurber Prize for American Humor to such writers as Ian Frazier, Jon Stewart, Alan Zweibel, Joe Keenan, and Calvin Trillin.
