About the author:
Lisa Janice (LJ) Cohen (editor) is a poet and novelist, blogger, local food enthusiast, Doctor Who fan, and relentless optimist. LJ lives just outside of Boston with her husband, teenage sons, two dogs (only one of which actually ever listens to her) and the occasional international student. Her debut novel, The Between is available in all the usual places.

Talib S. Hussain (editor) has been writing speculative poetry and short stories for many years, mostly for his own enjoyment and more recently for sharing with his children. His interest in the scientific future is his day job too, where he has researched machine intelligence, evolved neural networks, and created games to train and assess human performance.

From the Icelandic coast of Vík, where a Troll ship
waits entombed in stone for the hand of the artist
to free it, to a boy who, with the help of his alien
friend, learns to create entire worlds, the stories
in Pen-Ultimate showcase tales of fantastic visions,
alien perceptions, and emerging awareness.

This speculative fiction anthology contains eleven stories written by graduates of the Boston area Ultimate SF Writing Workshop. All proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to the SFWA (Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America) emergency medical fund.
