Mike Massa

Mike Massa writes science fiction, military SF, fantasy and post-apocalyptic fiction, in addition to non-fiction articles for publication. His most recent novel, co-written with John Ringo, is the national bestseller River of Night (2019), book six in the NYT best-selling Black Tide Rising series. Since 2016, he has written two novels, a novella, and a dozen short pieces which have been included in ten anthologies. In addition to his writing, Mike works for an award-winning research university, integrating machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies into practical applications for logistics, predictive maintenance, and cyber-defense. Or, you know, Skynet. Whichever comes first.

Before he began writing, Mike lived an adventurous life, including stints as a naval officer (1130), an investment banker, a security and anti-fraud expert and a tech entrepreneur.

He has lived outside the US for several years, plus the usual military deployments. Mike is married and enjoys the challenges of three sons and a growing cohort of grandsons all of whom check daily to see if today is the day they can pull down the old lion. Not yet…

Gray Rinehart

Gray Rinehart writes stories, songs, and other things. He is the only person to have commanded an Air Force satellite tracking station, written speeches for Presidential appointees, and had music on The Dr. Demento Show. He is currently a contributing editor (the “Slushmaster General”) for Baen Books.

Gray is the author of the lunar colonization novel Walking on the Sea of Clouds, and his short fiction has appeared in Analog Science Fiction & Fact, Asimov’s Science Fiction, Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show, and multiple anthologies. As a singer/songwriter, he has two albums of mostly science-fiction-and-fantasy-inspired music.

During his rather odd USAF career, Gray fought rocket propellant fires, refurbished space launch facilities, “flew” Milstar satellites, drove trucks, encrypted nuclear command and control orders, commanded the largest remote tracking station in the Air Force Satellite Control Network, and did other interesting things. His alter ego is the Gray Man, one of several famed ghosts of South Carolina’s Grand Strand, and his web site is graymanwrites.com.

Steve White

Steve White was born in Norfolk, VA, in 1946 and served as a Naval Intelligence officer in the Mediterranean and in the Vietnam War Zone. He is a graduate of the University of Virginia Law School and an associate member of the Virginia Bar. He is well known for the best-selling Starfire military science fiction series with David Weber and, more recently, other collaborators. In addition, he has written a number of popular science fiction adventure novels for Baen, including the Jason Thanou series of time travel adventures that began with Blood of the Heroes and continues through Gods of Dawn, the sixth novel in the series. His other solo novels include Saint Antony’s Fire, an alternate-history fantasy set in Elizabethan times, and, most recently, Her Majesty’s American and Her Majesty’s Rebel, stories of interstellar intrigue set in the future of an alternate timeline in which the British Empire spans the stars. Steve lives in Charlottesville, VA. He is married and has three daughters, the youngest of whom he and his wife found and adopted in Russia… but that’s another story.
