A science fiction/fantasy charity anthology
The Writers for Relief anthology series feature collections of short fiction by top talents in the realms of fantasy and science fiction writing. The first and second volumes have brought help to Hurricane Katrina survivors through the Red Cross and Bay Area Food Bank, respectively. This third volume turns the focus to those who suffered in Oklahoma and features some of today's best known speculative fiction authors including Kevin J. Anderson, Ben Bova, Stephen Euin Cobb, Jason Sandford, Bobby Nash, Todd McCaffrey, A.H. Sturgis, John Hartness, Edmund Schubert, Mike Resnick, Danny Birt, Jaym Gates, Gray Reinhart, Janinie Spendlove, and Eugie Foster. Edited by my pals, Davey Beauchamp and Stuart Jaffe.
All proceeds benefit the Oklahoma Tornado Survivors via the Red Cross.
My story in this anthology is called Magnus: The Apprentice. It tells the tale of young Andrew Kenny when he moves to a new town and discovers that not only was his grandfather a powerful sorcerer and protector of the planet Earth from demonic invasion, but that he shares those same gifts. When the villainous Lord Lucius Malfor threatens, Kenny has to learn how to use his powers to fight off a new invasion.
You can find Writers For Relief Vol. 3 here.
|Pencils by Wendell Cavalcanti.|
Now that all the pencils are in on Strong Will, Mike Gordon and I went over them and the script again last night. I can't share much yet, but here are the thumbs on my computer.
The first 4 pages can be seen at right here.
Wendell Cavalcanti kicked butt on the pencil art for this story and the pages will be sent off to inker-extraordinaire Rob Jones next. Fun times.
Did I mention that I love creating comics?
