About the Editors:

In addition to PM Press reissuing co-editor Gary Phillips' The Jook, his mystery novella The Underbelly, was recently published as part of PM's Outspoken Authors series.  He is also editor and contributor to Orange County Noir, writes a regular column on pop culture on fourstory.org, Donuts at 2 A.M., and is writing two retro spy characters—Operator 5, set in the pulp period of the Great Depression, and super spy Derek Flint in the swinging sixties—for Moonstone Comics.

Andrea Gibbons lives in London, where she is currently studying at the London School of Economics. She is an editor with PM Press, and an associate editor of the progressive journal CITY. She is a closet writer of fiction, in addition to her editing work and non-fiction articles, which have been published in various mediums.
