An esteemed monstrologist and contributing editor of The Journal of Comparative Creature Studies, Dr. Sturm lives in a coffin beneath a schloss outside Hotzenplotz. Artist and adventurer Baron Ludwig Von Drang had a creature change in his childhood that led to an ongoing preoccupation with the supernatural. ''Mad'' Ludwig lives in a wood near a castle in Bavaria. Illustrator Bruce Waldman is an adjunct professor at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
