#Art of Fantasy 4: Brom

I promised dark. I present to you the art of Brom. I've been an admirer of Brom's work for a long while. He and Frazetta are the only artists, in my humble opinion, able enough to draw and paint Conan the way Robert E. Howard envisaged the iconic barbarian.

It continues to float in purgatory while being ravaged endlessly by revisions. But there's news. A splinter of light is piercing the dark of the tunnel. Being … Continue reading In Which I Humbly Stand Before You, Hat in Hand…

This Doesn’t Have to Be the World You Live In. Neil Gaiman on “Why Fiction is Dangerous”

As you know I'm a Neil Gaiman fan. Well, this morning I found an article written by Chris Lough in which Gaiman talks about two of his upcoming new books, Fortunately, the Milk and The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Gaiman explains the backstories and motivation for writing these stories and then he shares a little about … Continue reading This Doesn’t Have to Be the World You Live In.
