Writing Prompt – Belleville, 1958

An American in Paris?


As I said, I’m collecting photographical references for my next short story.
And this one is exactly what I was looking for.
Not that I knew I was looking for it before I found it.

Writing Prompt – Ruins

From a Distance


Something different, for the first prompt of the year – a digital image I actually used as visual reference for the next Aculeo & Amunet story.
As it usually happens, I start with some image references and then my story and my description go in quite a different direction, but it is all right this way, I guess.

Relaxing with the Queen of Pulps

BrundagePBThis is the Christmas week, so we’ll be not publishing a lot of contents.
January will mark the first anniversary of Karavansara, and we’re planning some celebrations.

But right now, I’m trying to recharge a little my batteries, and to do so I’m enjoying the marvelous book Vanguard published about the life and art of Margaret Brundage.
Excellent stuff – not only the pulp magazine artwork is gorgeous, but Brundage’s life is quite interesting.
The book is beautifully produced, and was an early Christmas gift.
