#Art  of #SciFi  

Maxim Revin works as a concept designer and illustrator and hails from Moscow, Russia. Gathering information about him proved difficult, more so by my inability to speak Russian. Still, I discovered Maxim collaborates with a group of artists and writers on Celistic, a project about futuristic worlds.

‪#‎Interspecies‬: The Great and Awesome Cover Reveal ‪#‎SciFi‬

The minute we saw the cover we wanted to show the world. But we could not. It would’ve been too early. Interspecies was not ready yet.

Finally, we can show you the stunning cover Piofoks painted for us. Take your time and allow the image below to filter through your eyeballs straight to your occipital lobe. Now let it lodge itself there permanently.

Remember last year when I did a blog post on Kōsa Press titled, The Magnificently Dark Piofoks, in which I showcased our cover artist’s talent? Well, this is part of that beautiful and awesome cover he made for us.

As for my novella-sized contribution to the anthology, the fanatically efficient Ally Bishop edited Babylon’s Song, and I listened and did as instructed and my story grew prettier, as a result, despite it not being a pretty tale. And now I’ve worked through the final proof from our proofreader.

#Art  of #Fantasy  

I’m mixing my fantasy and science fiction genres slightly today. For good reason, though. Today’s artist paints in both genres and because my own approach in some of my stories borders on science fantasy and supernatural fantasy, I could not help but feel enamored by his art. Alexy Egorov is a digital artist and lives in Yakutsk, Russia, and you will love him.

Story
Tagline
I tend to fantasize a lot. Sometimes I write about it.
Introduction

As a kid I consumed books and comics by the truckloads, reading anything from fantasy to westerns to science fiction. I wanted to stay in that dream state so I began making up my own stories, writing my first short story at 12. I also started drawing my own comics--little stick figures with dialogue balloons that later evolved into musclebound warriors and scantly clad vixens. I gave them battle axes and broadswords and unleashed them onto the world. A silent chaos ensued followed by crickets chirping and nothing much else, but boy, did I entertain myself. Alas, life kept interfering and I allowed it, and so nothing came from my artistic endeavors.

After graduating high school I served a year in the military where I learned how to dig trenches, eat quickly, and miss girls. I travelled to Israel and lived on a Kibbutz for eight months, working in avocado fields and drinking cheap vodka. For a while I sold pots and pans and educational toys in Africa and almost got shot in Zimbabwe. I did a brief stint as a cartoonist somewhere and an even briefer stint as reporter somewhere else. Somehow, and maybe by accident, I ended up in law school and became a lawyer. I did that for almost a decade.

These days I'm back to writing stories. A calling I ignored for far too long. I now live in New Zealand, and with a wife and kids, and a dog, I'll be staying put for the foreseeable future.
