One look at the title “A Roll of the Dice” and readers will have a good idea of how the anthology, the second from the Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Writers of Spokane, came together.

Six local authors rolled a set of story dice and used the elements on the dice – a clock, the world, flames and a turtle – as inspiration for a short story, interpreting the elements as broadly or as literally as they wanted.

The resulting anthology is now available to read, and the following authors will sign copies of “A Roll of the Dice II” at Auntie’s Bookstore on Saturday.

Brett Bunge is a freelance writer and film critic whose “Sword of Shadows” appeared in the first Roll of the Dice anthology. He has also written for the Mighty and the Portalist and earned a B.A. in English from the University of California, Davis.

Georgette Graham is a writer and blogger who started the Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Writers of Spokane in 2016.

Bob Jenson has written two novels, is happily married and is the father of two daughters.

Bill Link is a lifelong resident of Spokane and Spokane Valley. He published “Creeping Shadows,” an anthology of short horror stories, and was featured in the first Roll of the Dice anthology. He is currently working on a horror novel.

Mel Murphy was born in Monterey, California and raised in rural northern Nevada. She has since lived in and traveled throughout London, Sydney and the Pacific Northwest. She was worked as a wildland firefighter, janitor, organic farm worker, seasonal postal carrier and newspaper reporter.

Angel Vansant has been writing for as long as she can remember and likes to explore darker themes and sit “comfortably with the uncomfortable.”
