Noah Beit-Aharon a.k.a. N.S. Dolkart is a fantasy author and stay-at-home dad, as well as co-chair of this year's programming committee. His Godserfs series from Angry Robot Books consists of the novels Silent Hall (2016, Gemmell Award nominee), Among the Fallen (2017), and A Breach in the Heavens (2018). Works-in-progress include a YA historical fantasy about holy war and high-stakes cooking, a middle-grade story about girl naturalists protecting ecosystems from destructive adventurers, and a secondary-world potion heist. In non-writing life, he has taught dementia care and Israeli folk dancing (but not at the same time), sung as Darth Vader in an opera, and cooked some damn fine meals. His pizza is acceptable. His website is, and his Twitter handle is @N_S_Dolkart.
