Looking at their website, it seems they don’t include author bios, let alone author photos, on the same page as a short story. They don’t even appear to link to a contributors page or anything. That’s wonderful. No wonder the site feels so quiet and bookish.

The “Art of Fiction” series is great. Just black text on a white background—the interviewee is allowed to set the tone.
