Cover for Cirsova Summer Special #1

Standard

Halcyon01

With the heat wave going by it became more than appropriate to share with you pictures of the copies we received for which we made the cover art. Yes, that’s right! None other than Cirsova, the “Magazine of Thrilling Adventure and Daring Suspense” Summer Special #1.

These have traveled far and wide but are finally home. Thank you, Cirsova Publishing!

Halcyon02

We illustrated the story named “Halcyon” by Caroline Furlong and received wonderful guidance and the story itself to read.

It’s always somewhat magical to try and fish the underlying imagery and mood that is put into the narrative to then do the utmost to condense it into one single image and we doubled our happyness since not only Cirsova’s team but also the author herself gave a thumbs up to our interpretation.

You should definitely visit Cirsova Publishing’s blog post about this issue and get to know more about it and all the stories inside!

We recently got a shout-out on Cora Buhlert’s blog for our new edition of Leigh Brackett’s Stark:

Interestingly, the most recent editions by Cirsova Publishing of all companies, are the first to actually portray Eric John Stark as Leigh Brackett described him, namely as a black man.

In her post, Cora talks about how the Golden Age of Science Fiction was more diverse than it’s generally given credit for as she takes a look at the 2019 and the 1944 Retro Hugo Awards nominees (the latter of which includes a couple Brackett stories!).

One of the focuses of our own pulp review series at Castalia House (rerunning here through the end of the year) was to illustrate that the pulps were not what people have thought they were by showing what they actually were. And few if any of the nearly 150 stories we reviewed were anything like…

The Fox and the Magpie

The enjoyment of the hunt comes to eyes that glitter like gold.

Mercy me, they really are posting this year!

We believe Victorians must have been some of the first larpers (live roleplayers). The way you conducted yourself had to fit a role in society, and there wasn’t much room to stray from the mold.

Dear Miss Magpie and Mister Fox prefer to leave such dogmas out of their lounge room and dedicate themselves in the art of capturing each other’s heart.
Who shall be the first to succumb?

★Happy Friday happenings to all. See you next week and stay inspired★
