Shortly after posting the exploratory roughs for this piece, I decided what I posted wasn't very good. I almost dumped the whole idea. But a couple of people bothered to comment, so I felt like someone was watching. Had to follow through.
I don't know if this improves on my original ideas, but I had great fun. I really enjoy this nonsense. And the research is the best part. It's a joy for me wander the web and take in all those wonderful collections of classic science-fiction magazine and novel covers. It tickles my eye and I like nothing better than having my eye tickled; it improves my energy and my disposition.
I started typing an excerpt from F. Webber Slingbrook's featured story, but I don't think I'll have the time to get very far with it. Maybe later...
Any comments, criticisms and wise-guy remarks are welcome.
I should note that I don't quite know what it is the guy is wearing. I put it on him and he seemed comfortable with it.
