Hear ye, hear ye -- now available from the good folks at SHIMMER -- their 2008 Art Issue. Most magazines commission art to complement a story, but for this special issue, art director Mary Robinette Kowal has instead flipped those roles. She selected art first, and SHIMMER then invited authors to write their stories based on the art. The cover illlustration is by me, and Kurt Kirchmeier crafted a cool story from it entitled "Penny Wise". SHIMMER also interviews me for the issue. Therein, we discuss, art, marriage, lightbulbs, and I manage to craft one of the most spectacular jinxes in modern sports history. See for yourself when you pick up the issue available here.
