Cameron Scott Kirk is interested in travelling the world looking for lost treasure, meeting alien life, and wielding a sword against horrific monsters. In lieu of the real thing, he writes about it. Kirk has been published in over a dozen magazines including Antipodean SF, Aphotic Realm, and Alcyone magazine to name but a few. A winner of Best of Fiction at Across the Margins magazine (another publication starting with "A"), Cameron lives with his wife and daughter, who both think he should give up his silly writing and get a real job.

Kirk's debut novel, The Mad Trinkets, is scheduled for release Summer 2021 by The Mage's Lantern.




Mariana Palova is an enthusiastic alchemist who, from time to time, likes to do a bit of magic. Born in Jalisco, Mexico, she decided to dedicate her life to a constant search for her own personality, which has led her to become a self-taught writer and artist. With a special weakness for nature, occultism, and folk music, and a disastrous degree in graphic design, her visual work (a mixed media of photography, oil, and digital painting) has been nationally awarded and exhibited in more than fifty shows around the world. Nowadays, her biggest dream is to get a comfy cabin in the woods and live peacefully happy as a creator.


Palova's debut novel, Nation of the Beasts: The Lord of the Sabbath, was released in 2019 by The Mage's Lantern and was awarded Gold Winner for Fantasy in ForewordINDIES Book of the Year awards.

Book Two of the Nation of the Beasts series, Legend of Fire and Lead, is scheduled for release Fall 2021 by The Mage's Lantern.
