Phil Temples was born and raised in Bloomington, Indiana, but he’s lived and played in greater Boston, Massachusetts for nearly four decades.
Phil Temples began writing flash fiction and short stories in the 1990s for his own amusement. He’s had over 140 titles appear online and in print. His first novel, The Winship Affair, was published in 2014 by Blue Mustang Press. In 2017, Big Table Publishing Company accepted two additional works for publication: a short story anthology, Machine Feelings, and the paranormal horror-mystery, Helltown Chronicles. Phil’s first novella, Albey Damned, was published by Wapshott Press in late 2017. The second in the Carrie Bloomfield Novel series, The Allston Variant, is now available from Moonshine Cove Publishing. His third Carrie Bloomfield installment, Uncontacted Frontier, is currently a work in progress.
Phil Temples’ professional career spans the fields of software engineering and computer systems administration in the .com, .org, and .edu sectors. For the past 16 years, he’s worked as a computer systems administrator at a Boston-area university.
In addition to his day job and writing activities, Phil is a ham radio aficionado, and a singer in a garage band.

Gregory Wolos lives, writes, and runs in a small New England town. More than seventy of Gregory’s short stories have been published or are forthcoming in print and online journals such as Glimmer Train, The Georgia Review, The Florida Review, The Baltimore Review, The Pinch, Post Road, The Los Angeles Review, PANK, and Tahoma Literary Review. His work has earned six Pushcart Prize nominations and his stories have won awards sponsored by Solstice, Gulf Stream, New South, and the Rubery Book Awards. His fiction collection Women of Consequence was released by Regal House Publishing in 2019. Gregory holds a doctorate from the University at Albany. More often than not, his writing reflects Kafka’s assertion that a literary work “must be an ice ax to break the sea frozen inside us.”
