This came out a while ago, but just unearthed my contributor copies which look pretty sexy. Great cover art work by Ashlyn Fenton, and works by Tantra Bensko, RAchell Kendall, Nancy Collins, Alex Dally MacFarlane, Deb Hoag, Janis Butler Holm, Nikki Guerlain, and Peg Wheeler, among so many others. My story, “Going Down” is there, and I wrote about writing about this story here one of my all time dreadfullest rejection experiences.
Oh, and check out the book, here
Exciting to have a new story in this called “Going Down,” along with some fine company like Nancy Collins, Nicki Guerlain and a bunch of others. Thanks again to editor Deb Hoag and the reckless folk at Doghorn Press.
Another illustration from Der Orchareengarten by the great Alfred Kubin, who wrote the surrealist novel, The Other Side (Die Andere Seite) in 1908, which he also illustrated (below) adapting some of the drawings he’d prepared for Gustav Meyrink’s Der Golem when Meyrink hit a snag.
Kind of like when the money for the Halo movie ran out and Neill Blomkamp and Peter Jackson adapted the look and some of the Cthulhu-ish alien designs for District 9. I’ll be looking at the works of Kubin, among others in my upcoming LitReactor class, Writing the Weird.
