Christopher Brown is the author of Tropic of Kansas, a novel of American collapse and uprising published in 2017 by HarperCollins that NPR called "frighteningly prescient...the nightly news with the volume turned up to eleven” and Booklist said reads “like Cormac McCarthy meets Philip K. Dick.” A World Fantasy Award nominee, Brown’s work explores politics, economics, ecology and technology through a speculative prism. A former staff lawyer for the Senate Judiciary Committee and General Counsel of two publicly-traded technology companies, Brown lives in a rehabilitated petrochemical brownfield in East Austin.

Roddey Reid is author of Confronting Political Intimidation & Public Bullying: A Citizen's Handbook for the Trump Era & Beyond (2017) and is Professor Emeritus, University of California, San Diego, where he taught classes on the modern cultures and societies of the U.S., France, and Japan. His latest writing has been on trauma, daily life, and the culture of intimidation and bullying in the U.S. and Europe. He hosts a personal blog called “UnSafe Thoughts” on bullying and the fluidity of politics in dangerous times. He is a member of the San Francisco chapter of IndivisibleGuide.com (now Indivisble.org), the activist group that was formed in December 2016 to pressure politicians to preserve the legacies of the New Deal and the Great Society and that now has over 6,000 chapters nationwide.
