Publishing authors I admire is as good a way as any to get a chance to work with them. I was making good money on A Distant Soil some years back, so why not share the love?
One of my favorite authors is Delia Sherman, whose new website features “The Tragedy of King Alexander the Stag”, a story originally published in A Distant Soil. The text is available for free at this link, and several of my illustrations are included. It’s a gorgeous tale, and I hope you will take the time to read it. The site design is easy on the eyes, too.
Here’s one illo from the story that isn’t at Delia’s new website.
Alas, the original scans were lost, but we’ve done our best to restore what we could here.
Check out these literate and romantic modern fantasy works by Delia Sherman.
