Matt Finch, mad genius behind Mythmere Games, emailed me this morning to let me know that ‘Surge of the Wine-Dark Sea’ is now available from Lulu — in either softcover or hardcover editions (or PDF).
This is an art book of art by artists of the OSR… and I have a few bits in it. As noted in the Lulu ad copy:
This full color book is filled fantasy and swords & sorcery illustrations by artists of the D&D “Old School Renaissance.” These artists have created the visual imagery of recent publications focusing on playing D&D by its early rules, including works by publishers Pacesetter Games, Mythmere Games, the First Edition Society, Frog God Games, Usherwood Adventures, and many others!
Stefan, I have been looking through my artist pdf copy and it rocks. I'll for sure be buying a print copy. Love your work in it. Oh yeah, congrats on your deal with James Raggi and Exquisite Corpse. That is one of my favorite monster books for sure!
When I saw this book was released I yelled in joy to my wife and called my mother on phone and gleefully stated “I'm published, I'm published ! Well some of my game art is published !”
They both had virtually the same response …”uh haven't you been published before?”
I explained to both of them how it was simply cool and my wife made me order a hard cover.
I'm glad I did (there's a coupon out there that pretty much makes the shipping free or wicked cheap), the pdf looks pretty good.
