No, I'm not talking about the midget car made by Ford Motor. I'm talking about two Jeffrey Ford trade paperback editions just released from Golden Gryphon Press. THE FANTASY WRITER'S ASSISTANT AND OTHER STORIES
and THE EMPIRE OF ICE CREAM
are both now available again. Just received my copies and they're looking good. Of all the covers I've illustrated, these two are amongst my faves. Both books are short story collections, and both were World Fantasy Award finalists. In fact, TFWA won the World Fantasy Award back in '03. Originally released in hardcover, TFWA has long since sold out, and EMPIRE's hardcover edition
is about to do the same.
Just noticed that Jeff Ford has himself a new website
called THE WELL-BUILT CITY. And if you missed it, the mighty Charles Tan recently interviewed
GGP publisher Gary Turner. Good stuff!! Check it out.
