Gideon Marcus is the founder of Journey Press. A professional space historian and award-winning science fiction author, he is the editor of the Rediscovery: Science Fiction by Women series and the author of the Kitra saga. His time machine to 55 years ago, Galactic Journey, has been a finalist for science fiction's most prestigious award, the Hugo, for three years running.
Though Gideon and his family live in San Diego, Hawaii is their second home: his wife's grandfather was a doctor on Kaua'i for twenty years, and though he passed on in 2013, they have continued to visit every year. Gideon was a guest at last year's Kawaii Kon, and he hopes this whole COVID thing will be done in time for him to attend Kauai Comic Con in December!
