Panda Egg: Cracking Soon

panda egg1

It’s ready! The paperback is in review and Mister Thorn is wrestling with the e-book as we speak. By the end of the week, all should be in readiness. All that remains is to see if my copies arrive in time for the Pandamonium Party on the 23rd of November.

Gabriel has done an amazing job as always, and – due to a bit of creative sharing and re-use – he was generous enough to offer me this cover free of charge, which was very welcome news at this time of year.

The overall joined-up three-panel short story anthology piece is also looking more and more incredible. Here they all are: Deadshepherd, The First Feast and Panda Egg.

Already can’t wait to see what the next anthology cover looks like, and there’s at least The Last Days of Earth to publish before that. Steaming ahead with that one now.

So, for those of you still keeping track of this (and I may just be shouting at my assorted mental passengers at this stage), here’s how Phase Two is progressing.

Still plenty more letters in the alphabet, as Jean-Luc Picard might say.

    Great news! I just got Lord of Chaos today, not sure if you recall the cover but that’s the one that basically looks just like one of those cheap softcore porn romances marketed to women from the 90’s and so on…heck maybe they still crank ’em out who knows.

    But this reminds me I wanted to have A Talk with you about Gabriel. Because I just don’t feel like he’s a real fantasy cover artist. I mean where are the strangely old and misshapen characters on the cover that are barely recognizable as the main characters they’re clearly intended to be? And where’s the random Nicholas Cage cameo? Sweet pulled that off in the cover of book ONE of The Wheel of Time. You have, how many books now and still no Nick Cage? XD

      Bwaaahahahaha oh yes, Sweet was truly a man who had missed his calling. Probably couldn’t hear it over the sound of his muse breaking his fingers with a nutcracker.

      Okay, we pay out on Sweet but bless his heart and his memory, so much enjoyment his art gave us over the years.

      Gabriel is definitely not a cover artist of the Old School. I mean, he did a too-hairy character with arms down to his knees … and it was meant to be that way! I mean, what?

    Oh, and my Expanded Urverse combined PDF is now 6,200 pages long.
