THE GLASS GATEWAYS by Herbarianband
THE GLASS GATEWAYS
The cover artwork to my children's novel THE GLASS GATEWAYS published today!!  It's a psychedelic science fiction/fantasy tale encompassing some strange worlds and some even stranger characters - a bit like an updated ALICE IN WONDERLAND for the post-punk generation (though mainly for kids). To borrow (and slightly distort) a phrase - "A literary Big Mac laced with psychedelic dill!"

So the Winter Solstice approaches once again - have to say the return of some proper seasonal temperatures here in the UK has been most welcome, it's good to be warm but it just feels wrong at this time of year and a little ominous and foreboding too.

My main reason for writing is that after nigh on eleven years of trying I've finally got my children's novel THE GLASS GATEWAYS published as an ebook on Amazon Kindle. I painted the cover and uploaded it myself as it seems without being a celebrity or an established author there are far too many brick walls encountered when trying to get published these days!

It's probably best described as a latter-day ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND populated with strange (but hopefully likeable characters) and some thought-provoking locations. To borrow (and slightly distort) a phrase - "It's a literary Big Mac laced with psychedelic dill!) If you're interested you can check it out here:

Cheers all!
THE X-FILES by Herbarianband
THE X-FILES
A cover I painted for DREAMWATCH magazine back in 1995 which was sadly unused (never did get to the bottom of it!)
I still like it so here 'tis: -   Acrylics on watercolour board (NOT surface).

Shada
An imagined Target cover for the novelisation of the unfinished Season 17 finale SHADA by the late, great Douglas Adams!
Thanks again to fresian-cat for providing the titles and logo.
