New Books Coming and Oh Yes, Love the Cloning Tool

Trying to tie together a lot of loose ends before the year’s end. I’ve got two audiobooks that will be available this Winter. One contains two stories by Jack Vance and the other is a novella by Andre Norton.

I was working on a cover for the Pohl/Kornbluth novel, Search the Sky and decided to re-purpose the original cover (which is in Public Domain–so it’s all good). Even though I needed a image with a vertical orientation, I couldn’t stop myself from redoing the whole image, mostly using the cloning tool in Photoshop. The video just alternates between the before and after image. Cover art is by Richard Powers who did a lot of unique abstract SF art in the 50s and 60s.

And here’s the book cover. Look for the eBook release in the next couple of weeks.

Search-the-Sky-FW

Some other eBooks that will be coming out in soon is an anthology of stories by Science Fiction Grand Master-Harry Harrison, and a novella by Philip K. Dick! Cool covers as well, but I’ll save that for another post 😉

I’m also currently, like right now, digitizing some old recordings from the SFOHA (Science Fiction Oral History Association) archive.

I’m also putting out a printed book of three novels by Andre Norton. More about that soon.

Re-purposing Public Domain Cover Art into New Cover

Here’s a new cover I did from an old paperback. The novel is Hang By Your Neck by Henry Kane. This :50 second video is five different “saves” I did in Photoshop. My main tool in the rubber stamp and smudge for this one. The novel is available now for the Kindle and will be on Fictionwise in a couple of weeks.
