Esmerelda Weatherwax was born and bred in East London and has lived there all her life so far. Since retiring from the Civil Service, earlier than she anticipated because of the cull of her generation of loyal and competent ‘old school’ officials, she has had time and energy to devote to other matters, of which the creep of Sharia and Islamisation is one.  As well as her posts at the Iconoclast she manages the London Office of the New English Review Press. Mrs Weatherwax blogs at The Iconoclast and her New English Review articles are archived here.

Christopher DeGroot—essayist, poet, aphorist and satirist—is a writer from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His writing appears regularly in New English Review, where he is a contributing editor, and occasionally in The Iconoclast, its daily blog. He is a columnist at Taki's Magazine and his work has appeared

G. Murphy Donovan is a former Intelligence officer and veteran of Catholic schools, USAF Intelligence, CIA, DIA, NSA, Vietnam, Korea, and the East Bronx. He usually writes about the politics of national security. However, he occasionally strays into the cultural or culinary because he believes that the only deficits that matter are common sense, hygiene, and a good multi-grain. He has written for most national security journals and a host of other periodicals too where his angst is pirated with abandon. Colonel Donovan's NER contributions are listed here and his blog posts are here. Help Yourself.

Robert Gear is a resident of the American southwest, born and brought up in the UK. He left England in 1975 to circumnavigate the globe, but after three years on the road his grandiose plan was stymied when in Mexico he met his future wife. He worked for much of the last thirty years as an English teacher in three different Gulf Arab countries, and has traveled extensively in the Muslim world from Egypt to Afghanistan and beyond. With his wife, he has coauthored several ESL textbooks.

Samuel Hux is Professor of Philosophy Emeritus at York College CUNY, where he taught in the English Department before switching mid-career to the Department of History and Philosophy—which journey was only appropriate since he has functioned as a literary critic, philosopher, and intellectual historian, when not writing familiar essays and the occasional brief memoir hiding within a “think piece.”  He is happy to have avoided academic specialist journals (after all, what would his “specialty” be?) preferring to reach the general educated reader in cultural reviews like New English Review—as well as The Antioch Review, Commentary, Commonweal, Dissent, Modern Age, New Criterion, New Oxford Review, The New Republic, Saturday Review, and others.  A native Tarheel, he graduated from and often daydreams of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill—but judges that his education would have been the poorer had he not attended Benning’s School for Boys, officially known as The Infantry School at Fort Benning, Georgia.

James Como, retired after teaching fifty years at the City University of New York, is now a professor of rhetoric emeritus.  Along the way he established an international reputation as an authority on the life and works of C. S. Lewis, publishing three books, dozens of articles, and appearing in five television documentaries. His criticism, commentary, and varied scholarship (e.g. on rhetorical criticism and Peruvian culture and politics), as well as stories and poems have appeared in a number of venues, including The Greenwich Village Literary Review, Arion: a Journal of the Humanities, The Wilson Quarterly, National Review, and The New Criterion. His most recent book is The Tongue is Also a Fire: Essays on Conversation, Rhetoric, and the Transmission of Culture . . . and on C. S. Lewis (New English Review Press).  Anyone interested in more detail may visit www.jamescomo.com
