Cat Rambo, a wonderful writer and editor of Fantasy magazine (now Lightspeed), did a developmental edit (not to be confused with copy-editing, which I have done by Rick Fisher over at E-Quality books) on Children of the Fallen—and she just sent me a link to some paintings that could have come right out of my book. Look at these:
Aren’t these terrific? They’re the work of Tomasz Alen Kopera, a Polish painter, now living in Ireland, and I love love love them. So spooky and weird and powerful….
I’m telling you, it’s as if I hired Mr. Kopera to do some illustrations for me. Which isn’t a bad idea, actually….
Has he been reading my mind? Have I been reading his? I could put character names to some of these from my book and they would perfectly fit. Forces of nature personified (or ossified?) doing their work, which is never easy, nor painless, though it may contain joy….
Gah! This one knocks my socks off. There is pleasure in it, but also loss of self, a being so much larger than human. Just the sort of thing I tried to get at with parts of Children…
For more go to the artist’s excellent website.

Primary to navasana. Chatted with Luc about his favorite show for the second half, so breathing and focus were zilch. But mama/little boy time is worth it.

- "Dusi's Wings" April, 2003. . . . "One thing fantasy can do for us is to give shape to the mysterious in the world; another is to make emotional yearning concrete. The early sections of "Dusi's Wings" do just that...there was a strong grasping towards the spiritual in fantasy here that was very promising, and I look forward to reading more by Lassiter." --review, Tangent Online.
