2012: Final Prayer

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

I heard from Nic Wilkinson at Insomnia that Robert M. Heske was putting together an anthology book featuring both comics and short stories based around the 2012 myths.  He specifically wanted a short story about what would happen the day after the cataclysmic events of the 21st of December, 2012 . So I knocked up a story and he’s bought it for the book.

The Seeds Of Time will appear, along with an accompanying illustration, in 2012: Final Prayer.

Due out sometime towards the end of the year. Should be a good book.

Out within a few months I should think.

They’ve already posted the full text of Lovecraft’s The Shadow Over Innsmouth.
