Currently living in Antibes, on the French Riviera, Thierry Brunet began to write some scripts for short-films when he was working in Paris as an assistant director. He wrote interviews of writers and rock musicians for Spike, musical reviews in Chronic'art. His poems and illustrated texts appear in well-known French journals La page blanche, La revue x, T.A.P.I.N… In January 2007 he created Nova Cookie and Frozen Hell, an experimental journal editing only very short stories in 6 words, in any language.

Chris Allen Clark lives in Morton, Mississippi, where he writes poetry and short stories. His story here is all true: Clark had ancestors at the Bloody Angle, but he despises ketchup. He has a passion for Classical and Jazz music, especially Brubeck's "Take Five," and is also a history and art fanatic. What is life all about? Only the art of Edward Hopper can tell. 

There is not a single thing that v.e. either is or is not.
