A shout of thanks to artist Andy Bigwood, who asked me to contribute a piece of flash fiction for his forthcoming title The Sixty. Launching at EasterCon, containing no less then forty authors who each add a thought to one of Andy’s superb illustrations, The Sixty is a collection of science fiction and fantasy art illuminating brave new worlds, dark realities and fantastic realms.
And in case you have any doubts:
Gorgeous juxtapositions of the nearly familiar and the oddly alien – of textured other-world terrains and the strange beings that belong there, even if they’re us. City architecture merged with airships or deep space, forming poignant gestalts that always work. Inspired stories in a book of images. Everything combines to produce art that is new, lustrous and haunting.
– John Meaney, Author of the ‘Ragnarok’ Trilogy
Andy’s beautiful, unique artwork, blended with gems of fiction by exciting contemporary writers, creates a most original dream world. It’s a treasure trove, a box of gorgeous delights that you’ll want to dip into constantly. Just curl up by the fire and lose yourself!
– Freda Warrington, Author of ‘Elfland’ and ‘Midsummer Night’
Andy Bigwood has created a wide and varied range of images and has brought them together with an impressive collection of fiction. His passion for his work shines throughout and the whole book is a treasure-trove of creative minds.
– Anne Sudworth, Fine Artist
Privileged to be a part of the project – thanks, Andy!
