The above image will be the cover to the second episode of James Everington’s Spectral eBook serial, The Quarantined City, entitled Into the Rain. Follow the protagonist Fellows as he gets deeper into the writings of the mysterious Boursier and the effects they have on him and his surroundings. The plot thickens, as someone famous once averred.
Once again, Neil Williams has provided layout duties for the cover, which is a detail from Max Ernst’s stunning painting Europe After the Rain, 1941 -1942. The episode will be available from Amazon at the end of this month. Look out for it!
As reported on Monday, Spectral will be publishing another monthly serial in the form of James Everington’s The Quarantined City, and we are delighted to announce that we have received permission to use Max Ernst’s glorious evocation of war-torn Europe, Europe After the Rain, as the cover image. However, rather than use the whole image for each episode, we will be using different sections of it for the individual parts. The serial will run from January 2015 to June 2015.
