Daryl Gregory's first novel, PANDEMONIUM, appeared from Del Rey Books in 2008 and won the Crawford Award for 2009. It was also a finalist for several other awards, including the Shirley Jackson Award and the World Fantasy Award. His second novel, THE DEVIL'S ALPHABET, appeared in November, 2009, and was named one of the best books of the year by Publisher's Weekly.

Alex Ross first came to prominence as the illustrator of Marvels before producing the award-winning Kingdom come. With a graphic novel for Vertigo (Uncle Sam), several projects for Marvel Comics and six oversized graphic novels starring DC's iconic heroes (collected in The World's Greatest Heroes), he continues to bring comics to a broader audience. In 2003, Ross was the subject of a retrospective of his work for DC Comics, Mythology (Pantheon Books), written and designed by Chip Kidd.
