zeppelins on Mars

I've felt bad about boring everyone to hezmana and back with these humdrum tales of moving and near death, and so, as a break from the monotony of the last few days, I offer this painting, which is anything but humdrum and will adorn the cover of Subterranean Magazine #2. Painted by Edward Miller (whose work you may recognize from a few of China Miéville's books), it was done as an illustration for my sf story, "Bradbury Weather," and I am very, very happy with it:

I spent a couple of quiet hours alone in the new place today, organizing books and what have you. Here in Atlanta, it's been raining since Friday, and the sound of a particularly heavy downpour against the roof and walls and windows of this old house was very comforting. Nonetheless, confusion still reigns, and the list of things I have to do immediately upon the conclusion of this protracted move has grown to such a length I shudder to consider it too closely. I'm going to attempt to get back to work tomorrow afternoon, if only in some limited writing-related-but-not-actually-writing capacity. It's time.

No boredom here. Reading about moving makes me grateful I'm not moving (sorry, I know that is of no comfort). I do wonder what your other shadowy mystery residents at the old place will do for amusement now that you are gone. Is Sophie adapting to the new place?

Right now, she's still at the old place. She comes over tomorrow. I dread that, as well.

Poor kitty. Jim's at an age where he gets upset when someone leaves the room, or the furniture is moved. I can't imagine how he'd react to a whole new place.

Then again, maybe Sophie is having a huge party at the old place while you're not there.

Wow, that's breathtaking. Any chance of a poster?

Probably not. I doubt subpress bought those rights.

That's a gorgeous image. I love dirigibles. I even love typing the word "dirigible".

*chiming in*

That's an astonishingly beautiful image.

(Also not bored of your tales of moving.)

Reminiscent of Sky Captain.

Cool. But, for the record, I was already working on the story when the movie was released.

That is a very nice picture. I'm becoming more and more won over by the concept of red skies. Which makes me vaguely worried that some improbable circumstance will arise where an alien offers me a home on a planet with a red sky and I'll quickly say yes, only to grow very sick of it as the months pass. It's a good idea to worry about those things. Still a great picture, though, and I wanna read the story.
