BIOS

Dayvid Figler is a former judge and current capital defense attorney in Las Vegas, which is also where he was raised and seems to be trapped...forever. He's done commentaries on All Things Considered, play-by-play on Court TV and is currently a contributor to Pando Daily. But that's all a hobby. He hates it when his friends become successful.

Virgie Tovar is a fabulous fat girl with an appetite for misandry and poop jokes. She's currently monogamous. She has also been interviewed by the New York Times and Ricki Lake sent HER a friend request on Facebook. Yeah. Find her online at www.virgietovar.com.

Alia Volz is a lousy sleeper. She's written stories and essays for Tin House, Threepenny Review (2016), Utne Reader, ZYZZYVA and other fine lit rags. The spawn of dope-crazed California hippies, Alia has crossed Spain on foot, seen Fidel Castro speak in a downpour, made love at the feet of Easter Island’s Moai—and she keeps rolling home to good old SF.

Michael Wharton edits New York Times bestselling authors such as Neil Strauss and Steven Kotler. He used to work for Aol. When he managed the Broun Fellinis, he was known as Don Miguel. Winner of the Best Supporting Actor in the New York Independent International Film Festival for a film that opened somewhere in Eastern Europe, he lives in San Francisco by the ocean.
