anthology. I'm in it. So is KJ Kabza, lately of Fantasy & Science Fiction fame, having obtained Pro status, and Chris Howard, who writes and illustrates his own sub-marine fantasies, more at www.saltwaterwitch.com, and others. Some of the best, most creative ideas are from people you may never have read, but isn't it great to discover a new author you like?

I know, just a little photoshop with the rover in the foreground for reference, but it's my first story illustration so I'm excited. I thought when I saw it that the hill isn't supposed to be there, and all three see the surprise craft nearly at once, but the parachute looks right, and the ship is silver, as it should be. Funny how I had a picture in my mind though I didn't describe everything tediously, so another reader/illustrator can see it differently. Who is to say she is wrong and I am right? A story becomes something subtlety different in each reader's mind, I think. That's part of the fun. It is also part of the fun to see what another reader got even though I never said as much.
Want to see some amazing story illustrations? Chris Howard Does his ownI lack the talent.

Neo-Opsis is soldly semi-pro. We were talking about this one a year and a half ago at a Readercon dinner. Neo-Opsis publishes biennially. They thought it reminiscent of an old Farmer novel, The Lovers. I tried to be Bradburyesque but also scientifically plausible. Well, maybe the latter's a stretch.
