FRANCESCA MYMAN, Senior Editor, grew up in Point Reyes Station in a dome house located adjacent to what was once Philip K. Dick’s writing studio, which no doubt explains her early otherworldly dreams. She is a graduate of Yale University, and has two graduate degrees in English and creative writing, interdisciplinary with classes in art, design, film, and criticism. She has done over 90 Locus covers, all but three with her original artwork. Among other strange and wonderful tasks associated with Locus, she handles interior and spot art, convention coverage and photography as needed, event planning for the Locus Awards, and art book acquisitions and wrangling. In addition to SF/F fiction, her interests include art and non-fiction, fashion, cephalopods, jazz, and social justice. For more, visit
