Rick Berry proposes cover art
The "New Tunisian retro dog"
So Irene Gallo, Rick Berry and I have been talking art lately, possibly with an eye to doing something on the tor.com website. Rick wants to do some cover art for me, and has actually been working up samples:
Rick explains that this image is the height of cutting-edge sci-fi illustration and has graciously allowed me to present it to the world. "Karl, the 'New Tunisian Retro Dog' is fine for your blog. Of course you'll have to explain that the "dogs" of New Tunisia are in fact cultured mollusks but just as friendly as the real thing. Mucus can be a bit of problem though."
