New things for April II

coc.jpg

Another work-related update. This HP Lovecraft collection is published by Barnes & Noble next month and features my colour rendering of the rising monstrosity on its cover. Nice to have something decorating an actual Lovecraft book, the second time this has happened (first time was for a French volume). B&N also sell my own book, […]

Welcome to Mars

Arriving today—and barely surviving the postman’s attempts to cram it through the letterbox—is the latest volume from Strange Attractor, Welcome to Mars by Ken Hollings. I’m really looking forward to reading this since it touches on areas of interest which span the development of Cold War technologies to pulp science fiction, examining the interconnections between […]

Since both of these are either partly or wholly connected to HP Lovecraft, their simultaneous arrival is […]

The art of Bob Pepper

Forever Changes (1967) by Love. Art by Bob Pepper, design by William S. Harvey. Following yesterday’s post about Philip K Dick covers (and Erik Davis’s appraisal of the DAW cover), I decided to check out Bob Pepper’s work a bit more and it quickly became obvious I should have joined the dots with this particular […]

Philip K Dick book covers

scanner_covers.jpg

650 Philip K Dick covers here although no thumbnails for ease of browsing.
