In an interview regarding his new album ‘Fear in a Handful of Dust,’ Brazilian/UK artist Amon Tobin said there’s a really valuable beauty in imperfection. We couldn’t agree more, which is why we worked some into the rear cover of City Limits (available next Wednesday). So don’t think you got a bad copy when you see the white spots on it! 😆

Don’t you hate it when you buy a bunch of books in a series and they look all hodgepodge and unrelated? So do we! Here’s how A Carrier of Fire strove to maintain design continuity in the Fogworld series, both inside and out (with a spoiler safely redacted). City Limits is out May 1st. 🤘

We’re proud to present the textless wraparound jacket design for City Limits: Fogworld vol. 2 by Jonny Lupsha, featuring Sao (L) and Neso (R) in New York. Neso’s twin fins support a 2nd/upper deck of citizens, suspended by cables. Art by Steven Juliano. Book available May 1st at Comic Logic Books & Artwork in Ashburn, VA, Amazon release date TBD.

“Hey, A Carrier of Fire admin; what happened with that poll you ran last month about your next project?”

Well, Voice in My Head, I’m glad you/I asked. The results are in, and our Japan-based horror novel Dead Passage won by a landslide. It wasn’t even close. It annihilated Fogworld 3 by a margin of 2:1.

On the upside, this means we’ll be branching out from our usual nonfiction and sci-fi fare to include horror. We’re expanding!

On the downside...unbeknownst to you all, we came up with an ABSURDLY fun (for you) and difficult (for us) plan to write and deliver Dead Passage to you. It will affect literally every aspect of our business, from the content of the novel to our social media marketing, from our fan base to our communications platforms, from our Patreon to our tax returns.

We’ll be unveiling this plan SOON, but for now, just know that the quality of the book depends on your and your friends’ engagement with us starting in May or June. So tell people to like us and get ready for a totally original, one-of-a-kind, landmark community event for indie literature!!! Here’s the poll results proving we’re not just ditching Fogworld of our own accord. 🙂

EXCLUSIVE FRONT COVER AND FULL PLOT REVEAL!!!!!

Fogworlders, we are THRILLED to finally debut the cover of Fogworld vol. 2: City Limits for you today. Meet Neso, a 1,500-foot spinosaurus-inspired colossus with two fins instead of one, seen here in Manhattan. Neso’s twin fins enable the suspension of a second/upper deck of the city between them; it will play a major role in the FogWorld War when City Limits is released next month. Keep an eye out next week for the official full wraparound reveal, including your first look at the cannibal-inhabited titan Sao. For now? Like, comment and share. Keep reading for the official synopsis. Artwork by Steven Juliano.

***

First, 13 creatures emerged from the ocean, each over 1/4 mile tall. Then came a lethal fog that covered the Earth’s surface. A small remnant of mankind built cities on the backs of these beasts and migrated up over the fog forever.

104 years later, war has come to the titans. Iris 13 is now a military strategist pursuing a spy who has a grudge to bear. Yet this war isn’t hers alone. It also involves a young soldier, a bare-knuckle boxer, a medical test subject and a bookie who has lost everything. Warfare, espionage, murder, corruption and betrayal may push them over the CITY LIMITS.

04/01/2019

So, uh...y’all ready to see the cover for City Limits: Fogworld vol. 2?

(Not an April Fools post - get hyped for a reveal tomorrow)

03/30/2019

Sending a book off for final production approval is an emotional thing. The author, editor and artists have worked on this...this THING for two to five years and now it's off to the printers. No backsies, no do-overs. Just a few hundred pages of black and white. Imagine putting your all into a job you love for several years and never receiving a word of feedback from your bosses. Then it comes time for feedback and you either get to keep doing the job you love or it turns out you've done it terribly and you have to go back to a much crappier job. And nobody will pull punches if you did a sh*t job. And you look at all the hours you spent away from your wife and kids, all the family outings you missed, all the doubt you had along the way, and it could either all be worth it or it could haunt you the rest of your life. People could jaw-drop at its marvels or maybe not a single person will give a damn. For better or worse, it's all done. It's kind of a terrifying and joyous and panicky and wonderful and awful feeling.

So that's where I'm at tonight. How's your Friday?

Dead Passage - Japanese-set zombie novel. Night of the Living Dead + The Great Escape. Survivors converge/reinforce house, dig tunnels to reach other houses/supplies/escape? First chapter in comment.

If it isn't obvious, we're big fans of big creatures here at A Carrier of Fire. Cthulhu, Godzilla, Clover, all those happy lil' fellas in Pacific Rim and Shadow of the Colossus...and now we've got a new one. We haven't played this game yet - in fact its early access release isn't for another hour or two - but it looks pretty sweet. What do you Fogworlders think of some of these guys?

Praey for the Gods is a brutal journey set on a desolate frozen island, where your only chance of survival is to destroy the very gods you believe in.
