Right. I’ve spent the last two days trying to find an appropriate image for Shimmer‘s Autumn 2006 cover. After looking at hundreds of pieces of art, I would like to know why it is so difficult to find a winged woman who is not a) nude b) carrying a sword c) nude AND carrying a sword d) offering someone salvation–with a sword e) badly rendered or f) all of the above. Oh, wait. I forgot the bondage angels. What’s up with that?
So, I think we’ll be commissioning the cover this time.
