I have moved hosts, and this requires some rebuilding and tinkering. So this site will be in an incomplete state for a few days most likely.
The Fairy King is the first in a series of shorter works to fill in the time-slot in between Warp’d Space releases. We did a variation on the cover design to distinguish them from the mainstream releases, incorporating a more traditional leather bound book appearance and the subtitle “Short Sharp Shocks”. I was very fortunate to find a wonderful archive of vintage photographs collected as a set on Flickr, and I was very spoiled for choice. The wings are taken from insects with glitter and sparkles added.
A lovely cover — I feel — for a very creepy play.
Three Exes for Christmas is a delayed posting. This release was paired with Gift of the Zombi for the December releases, and again features zombies. Given the care and attention I lavished on Gift, and that Sue and I were packing up house and ready to move back to WA, this cover had to be extremely basic. So it’s a largely untouched photo of a rather striking corporate building — all I did was to alter the sky and modify the colour to give it an apocalyptic feel.
