Thank You

Thank You

It’s Thanksgiving Day here in the United States, and I wanted to take a brief moment to just say thank you to all my loyal readers. There are millions and millions of books in the world, and I appreciate that you spent some of your time with my weird little series. That means a lot to me. Your passion and excitement are incredibly encouraging. I appreciate all your tweets, emails, and reviews. So, on this day of thanksgiving, I extend my heartfelt thanks to you. You’re the best.

🍂 Happy Thanksgiving! 🍂

Fritz Eichenberg’s illustrations to Poe

Fritz Eichenberg Woodcut Illustrations of the work of Edgar Allen Poe

If you have seen the cover of The Stars Were Right, you probably realize I am a big fan of engravings and etchings. The other day I stumbled across these wood engravings from 1944 by Fritz Eichenberg illustrating the work of Edgar Allen Poe. Obviously Poe’s work is amazing, and if you combine the themes of his stories with Eichenberg’s dark and moody woodcuts you get a fantastic super team of creepiness! I mean just look at this illustration for The Fall of the House of Usher:

See what I mean? There’s sooooo much more! Instead of me posting a bunch of low resolution images you should really just go look at the whole set in glorious high resolution. I found it incredibly inspiring, I promise you it’s worth your time.

Few bits of housekeeping:
In case you missed it over the weekend, I posted a preview of the physical copies of The Stars Were Right. It’s looking really good and I’m getting really close. They’ll be worth the wait!

Also, I’m not sure how much posting I’ll be doing over the next week. So I want to wish everyone in the U.S. a happy Thanksgiving holiday! If you live outside the States, I hope you have a great week as well. Great weeks all around! For everyone! Huzzah!
