Wednesday, 10 June 2009 Cover Me… I’m Going In

The new issue of Morpheus Tales is out next month and contains Behind These Eyes - a story from the Boneyard. Here’s a sneak peek at the cover.


If you look really, really closely (you may have more luck if you turn your back and squint) you can just make out my name on the cover. Exciting stuff, I’ve never made the cover before.

OK, so everyone in the line-up made the cover, but that’s not the point.

If you have super-human vision, you can also probably see that there’s a story by Joe R. Lansdale too (never heard of him… wonder if he needs any writing tips?). Now, that really is exciting.

How they managed to get Joe R. Lansdale, I have no idea, but they obviously mean business. In previous issues they’ve had fiction by (the sadly late) Joseph McGee and Michael Laimo. Ray Garton is scheduled for a future edition with hopefully more to follow.

Aaron Polson was in their first issue too, so if nothing else, I’m in good company.

For a PDF preview of the issue itself, go here and click on the cover.

Not sure what that guy on the front has been doing, but he’s certainly built up a sweat.

Looks great, congrats! The guy seems to be drooling, too--in anticipation.

Rebecca – Thanks. He’s drooling alright, but I’m not sure it’s in anticipation.

Samantha – Thanks, I just wish I’d written a better story. If I had the chance, I’d go back and change it a little… like all 2500 words of it. Seriously doubt the great Mr Lansdale will be reading it though.

Excellent. MT puts out a nice little mag. Congrats.

Cheers, Aaron. I had a copy of the first issue, but my dog tore it to shreds. I obviously don’t feed her enough.
