Cover for Shroud #9

The cover for Issue #9 Beautiful art by Tom Brown! Design, layout and editing by Danny Evarts. It’s creepy and gorgeous all at the same time. And green, which is my favorite color, so no complaints from me. No sirree Bob.

The funny part is that when I first saw the cover, my eye immediately landed on Lon Prater‘s name. Dear Lon is a longtime friend and fellow Codex Writer. He’s a brilliant poet and not-too-shabby cake chef. He shares another ToC with me this year — in the Dark Faith anthology.

And the first thing I thought was, “That darn Lon gets his name on the cover of the Shroud magazine OF COURSE. Figures I don’t even get a mentio–”

And then I saw the right-hand side of the cover.

Ah. Oh. Uh-huh. Nevermind.I’ll shut up now.

But I still can’t wait to check out what Lon’s got. I’m a big fan.
