About the Authors:
Arwen Bijker occasionally tortures herself by leaving the house without paper and pen. Besides writing, she competes in endurance riding with her horse, sails on square-rigged ships, and is trying to finish a study in International Communication. She also enjoys photography and writing about herself in third person.
Ursula Vernon is responsible for River's drawings from part 4 and onward. Arwen writes: "What you see in the Notes are some of her sketches -- she also does amazing paintings and digital work, all with a flavour of absurdism I like a great deal. You should go check out her work at www.MetalAndMagic.com."
