Mistress of Ceremonies

Stephanie Osborn

Stephanie Osborn is a former payload flight controller, a veteran of over twenty years of working in the civilian space program as well as various military space defense programs. Stephanie is retired from space work and has moved on to be a heck of a writer. She sometimes clams she's still fairly new at this "author stuff," but if so you wouldn't know about it by looking at the body of her work. Her website—www.Stephanie-Osborn.com—lists over a dozen novels (some co-authored with Travis S. Taylor or Darrell Bain) and a small handful of anthology appearances. Stephanie was such a big hit as our Mistress of Ceremonies at Con†Stellation XXX in 2011 that we've asked her to do it again :-)

In addition to her website, you can follow her on Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, or any of several other social sites listed on her links page.

Special Guest

D.B. Jackson

D.B. Jackson (the new pen name of an established, award-winning author) specializes in historical fantasy. D.B. is the author of Thieftaker Chronicles, forthcoming from Tor Books in July 2012. TC—the first book in the new series Thieftaker—is an urban fantasy set in pre-Revolutionary Boston. The second book in the series, Thieves' Quarry, is currently scheduled for 2013. You can see sample chapters from both books on D.B.'s website—www.dbjackson-author.com—or you can sample his work in the short story "The Tavern Fire," which appears in the 2011 anthology After Hours: Tales from the Ur-Bar, Joshua Palmatier and Patricia Bray, eds. After Hours is a DAW book and includes fifteen tales of fantasy, history, and intrigue.

In addition to his website, you can check out DB's Facebook page, follow him on Twitter, or read his blog. Sharp-eyed observers may notice a strong resemblance between D.B. and another Con†Stellation guest.
