A former bookseller and Web-site editor, Travis Elborough has been a freelance writer, author, and cultural commentator for the last decade. His books include The Bus We Loved: London's Affair with the Routemaster and The Vinyl Countdown. Nick Rennison has worked as a writer, editor, and bookseller for more than twenty years.

Both of them live in London.
