NATHAN MARTIN grew up in a small, mean town in a wind-swept desert atop the Rocky Mountains. He achieved impressive academic success early in life, especially considering his provincial upbringing. He has held professional posts as a writer, editor and publisher at two newspapers and two magazines in four states and two continents. He does not eat animals except for those he finds in the wild and kills himself.

AKASHA RABUT was born in water and dances like a dinosaur.
