These are for you, Boskone.

Hot off the press -- three new promo postcards featuring my cover art for (l to r) Dan Simmons' DROOD (Subterranean Press ltd. ed.); Mark Chadbourn's AGE OF MISRULE: BOOK ONE -- WORLD'S END (Pyr); and Dan Simmons' MUSE OF FIRE (Subterranean Press). These postcards will be freebies for all who attend my Guest of Honor Slideshow at Boskone, February 13th (Sat.), at 11am. Spread the word. Sound off below if you're attending the con. 'Hope to see you there. :)

You know, if I were more of a dilettante and flights were cheap, I'd be on a plane next week just to get a full set of postcards.

Have fun!

Hey, man --

Once you've made Locus' Recommended Reading List, you're pretty much a big-time author and I expect you to charter your personal plane for special occasions like this. ;) LOL.

Congrats on making that list. Hopefully we'll see each other down the road later this year....:)

Well, Boskone is also competing with me hitting other people with swords. It's a tough choice, though. :)

Gorgeous. I especially love the one for DROOD. Those folks at Boskone are lucky.

Thanks, Jason. :)

Christine -- it's gonna be crazy-cold. Lows in the single digits when we're over there. Oh well -- at least the con is indoors. :)

Well this is why living in the UK sucks...

Those look great, John. Hope the con goes well.

I don't have an artistic bone in my body, but I know what I like, and I like Mr. Picacio's work. I was lucky enough to attend Boskone and met him. In addition to being a fantastic artist, he's also a real nice guy. Introduced himself in the reception line, and later held an entertaining and enlightening panel discussion with another artist. His piece, The Well-Built City, won "Best in Show", and deservedly so. Neither my words nor a 2D picture can do the such a three-dimensional object justice. Great stuff!

Thanks, Ben. Really appreciate it. What a terrific weekend in Boston. I hope to do Boskone again someday soon.
