Kornbluth Cover: Squidalicious

(Cover depicts a character from his insane Mind-Worm story)

Okay, is that a cool cover or what? I mean, I look at most of the covers in the SF/F section and I am bored beyond belief. But this? I’d buy that in a second.

    I think there should be a study done into how a writer’s genre is determined by how much they like giant squid. Weird fiction would be on one end of the scale, Alan Moore a little further down, sci fi after that. I’m not sure what is the opposite of weird fiction… but they wouldn’t like seafood, that’s for sure.

    That’s awesome! Does it say who did the artwork? I can’t remember where I read “The Mindworm”, but I sure remember the story.

    I tried, but it was foolish of me. Still, my next two long fictions feature giant bears, sea anemones, burnt angels, alien heads, komodos, and ghost frogs, with no sign of squid.

    Is it odd that I am becoming a big fan of Mr. VanderMeer without yet having read any of his (your?) work–just from the taste in books I’m seeing demonstrated here?
