I suppose most people have a favorite type of art, and mine is right here. The 70-90’s fantasy scifi art. And starting with one of my most favorite piece of all time by Al Williamson.
There is something about that art from that time, from those genre, that you don’t see anywhere else, and i am thinking of style and colours here. The simplicity, yet the amount of details still. The bright nights, and use of white. Good lord i love it!
And it’s a shame, because i won’t see much new stuff coming out like this.

I think we need to clone him for future generations.
Why? I’m pretty sure that when Death comes for him, Christopher Lee will be waiting with a knife, and I’m not betting on Death in that fight.
Are you kidding? Mr. Lee and Death are old drinking buddies.
Christopher Lee just stabs Death and there’s a beat before Death goes “HEEEEYYYY how the hell have you been, you old bastard” and hugs him, the knife still buried in his back.
I’m pretty sure they’re the same guy, if you read Terry Pratchett at all. Christopher Lee is the only person in existence who speaks in all caps.

For a change of pace, something new (or newish; a 2011 edition by the great PS Publishing). The Inhabitant of the Lake was Ramsey Campbell’s first collection of stories, published in 1964 by Arkham House when he was still a teenager. They are unabashed Lovecraft pastiches, but they have a lot of charm. This comprehensive edition collects not only the stories and introduction from the first volume, but the first drafts of all the stories, a new afterword by Campbell, and copies of August Derleth’s very generous correspondence with the enthusiastic Liverpudlian teenager, who was just 15 when he submitted his first story. The gorgeous cover and interior illustrations are by Randy Broecker.
