ISF ANNUAL ANTHOLOGY

Hi folks, what do you think of this cover? It is with great pleasure that I share it with all of you. It is the cover for our Annual Anthology (stories published in our debut year – 2012). Erasmus Brosdau is the artist behind the cover art, also the great folks behind Indie Book Launcher produced the e.pub and elaborated the cover design and lettering

This anthology will soon be available for free download as pdf. and e.pub version!

Here is what Gardner Dozois and Cat Rambo had to say about the anthology:

“A fascinating and valuable look at what’s happening in other parts of the science fiction world, far outside of the usual American/English genre boundaries, and a book filled with strong new voices.” Gardner Dozois

 “This is what science fiction should do: amaze, sometimes alarm, and always entertain, in worlds that manage to be not our own but still reflect our reality.” Cat Rambo

Don´t forget, today we launch another issue of ISF. That’s right, ISF # 3 will be available for free download really, really soon!

Pretty awesome I bet!

Portugal in the Year 2220 – 25th of April Bridge!

In Ilustration, Portugal on April 30, 2012 at 11:27 am

The International Speculative Fiction isn’t made only of words!

I could not resist to show every one of you the magnificent illustration made by my friend Hauke Vagt (German Illustrator) to the presentation of Dagon (a Portuguese fanzine that I edit).

Do you want to know what the most amazing thing about this illustration is? It is actually Lisbon, in the year 2220. The bridge that you see is the Portuguese 25th of April Bridge when you look up from Alcântara (parish of Lisbon). The level of detail of the illustration is just astonishing, you can actually see, if you zoom in, the number of the flying vehicle (a Portuguese famous “Eléctrico”).

In that future Lisbon vending machines they are selling copies of “Dagon” and “Conto Fantástico” (the two magazines/fanzines that I created and edit).

What do you think of the illustration?
