Essential Truths VI

“We do not experience a material world.
We experience sensations, images, feelings, and thoughts in awareness,

and [we] interpret them as a material world.”
— Chopra

This is soooo cool…

Back when the great Richard Anderson was submitting ideas to Orbit for the cover of SEVEN PRINCES, he did an illustration inspired by a specific scene from the book. It’s from Chapter 23: On the Cryptic Sea, wherein Prince Vireon battles a colossal Sea Serpent, a deed that earns him the title “Vireon the Slayer.”

Until now I had only seen the rough “thumbnail” of this piece, but Rich recently posted the finished version on his flaptraps art blog. I couldn’t resist posting it here as well. Rich’s covers have received universal praise, and his SEVEN PRINCES cover even made the most recent edition of SPECTRUM. 



This bone-crushing tune from Wayne Static is my latest obsession.

Play it LOUD, or skip it altogether.

We Miss You, Frank
