Parisian Mermaids

corsair firt proof coverSo,let’s see… the new Corsair story is about to be published, and the first one is of course already available, in both paperback and ebook, and it’s called Chasing the Mermaid.

So, why don’t to something special, for this Friday, prompts and all?
Why not a good gallery of mermaids?

Curiously enough, La Vie Parisienne, the epitome of the girly, “French” magazine from the early 20th century, did show a certain obsession for mermaids.
And considering the magazine had some great artists on its bankroll, the following images are all pretty racy, they are often funny, and a few of them are absolutely gorgeous.

… and they might inspire a story or four.
