Brian Salchert is a writer who lives in Gainesville, Florida. For several years he used the pen name Alden St. Cloud. He says that “since Salchert (Sallkurt is how we pronounce it) isn’t a particularly easy name for others to deal with, my wife still wishes I had chosen, say, Brian Bass rather than Alden St. Cloud, and stuck with it.”


Sallie Tisdale lives in Portland, Oregon. Her new book, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice: Inside the Modern Hospital, has just been published by McGraw-Hill.
