Gini Koch: Columnist

Gini Koch lives in Hell’s Orientation Area (aka Phoenix, AZ), works her butt off (sadly, not literally) by day, and writes by night with the rest of the beautiful people. She writes the fast, fresh and funny Alien/Katherine “Kitty” Katt series, the Necropolis Enforcement Files series, the Martian Alliance Chronicles, and more.

She listens to all kinds of music 24/7, and is a proud comics geek-girl willing to discuss at any time why Wolverine is the best superhero ever (even if Deadpool does get all the best lines). She speaks frequently on what it takes to become a successful author and other aspects of writing and the publishing business. Gini can be reached through her website

News Team Field Reporters Needed

Slice of SciFi has a few field reporter openings available.

We need game enthusiasts who keep up with the latest gaming news, and are interested in providing game reviews;

We need comics enthusiasts who can help keep up with the latest comics news from both mainstream and indie publishers;

We could use a few more people willing to submit reports from the scifi and horror conventions they attend, and the news they may learn there;

And we can always use more in-house movie, television and DVD reviewers.
