Why must I call this entry anything at all?

Yesterday, I wrote 1,142 words on the Frazetta vignette, which I am calling simply "Tempest Witch." I do know now, thanks to Steven Lubold, that the Frazetta painting in question first appeared as the cover of issue #7 of Eerie magazine back January 1967*. I would have been three years old. Anyway, I like how the piece is going.

Honestly, I haven't much else to say here today, unless I've forgotten something. I would like to again thank the many donors to the "Spooky's Birthday Present Fund." And remind you that there are eBay auctions ongoing. And that Spooky has some very nice sea-glass pendants available through her Etsy shop, Dreaming Squid Dollworks.

Also, not too late to order the trade hardback of The Ammonite Violin & Others, though the limited edition is sold out.

* A little more research indicates the painting was done in 1966, and was originally title "Sea Witch" The version of the painting that appeared on the cover of Eerie no longer exists, as Frazetta reworked the painting later in life (he frequently did this with his paintings).

I just subscribed to Sirenia Digest and I look forward to reading "Tempest Witch." The Franzetta painting is amazing and I am interested to see what it has inspired.

I'm so glad I can finally subscribe. I think the idea of the digest is genius for providing an income for you between novels. I love that the subscription fees go straight to you without a publishing house taking a giant bite out of it. Also, glad to do my part to placate the space pirates.

I hope you do well with the auctions and Spooky's pendants.

Thank you. Truly, it's saved us the last four years.

I agree! It's like getting to belong to the Robert Musil Society, without the drawbacks :)

I'm glad you received so many donations for the poem! I had asked my boyfriend to buy one as my birthday present, but he hit the page too late in the day and the button was already down. (Now he'll have to come up with something just as inventive.)

Thanks for the reminder. I just ordered it.

That is very cool that he kept on reworking his paintings. When is something finished? It's just a choice the artist makes on when to stop, or maybe when a deadline is for submitting cover art. I paint, poorly, and I occasionally pull one of mine off the wall and start messing with it again in the hope of fixing it.
