Yes, that’s right. The wildly talented Luke Spooner has done it again and rendered a beautiful and creepy piece of cover art for the second book in the Shadows Over Main Street anthology series. Take a gander at this! (Click it to enlarge)

Shadow Street Art

We’ll share the full cover layout when it’s ready but for now you can gaze longingly at this cover art. But that kid on the bike? Yeah, don’t stare too long into his eyes.

As you may know, in addition to assembling some fantastic dark fiction writers for the book, Hazardous Press has also done a bang-up job of pulling in some equally mind-blowing artistic talent to contribute illustrations for the book’s interior.

These artists are:

Paul Carrick: www.nightserpent.com

Vincent Chong: www.vincentchong-art.co.uk

John Coulthart: www.johncoulthart.com

Galen Dara: www.galendara.com

M. Fersner: hagcult.com

And, finally, we are able to give you a look at some of the interior artwork here…

Well, we did say “some” of it, didn’t we?

Without a doubt, the quality of the art is on par with the quality of the stories you will find in the book, so to see all of the pieces in their entirety, you’ll need to snag a copy of the book when it’s out.

When will that be, you ask? Don’t fret, friends, you won’t have to wait until the stars are right.

SHADOWS OVER MAIN STREET is coming soon.

We have been very excited lately to see some of the interior art for Shadows Over Main Street rolling in. Robert Helmbrecht at Hazardous Press has really outdone himself by pulling in some amazing artists who are contributing beautiful and disturbing images to the book. We’ve been gawking at the art from Paul Carrick and John Coulthart this week and we can assure you these are images that’ll be burned into your mind for quite some time.

Look for more updates in the future on the art being included in the book. In the meantime, you can check out these websites for the contributing artists.

As the final bits of our anthology, Shadows Over Main Street are coming together, we are also thrilled to announce that, in addition to all the great stories and the wonderful cover art by Luke Spooner (www.carrionhouse.com), there will be interior art as well! These pieces will be contributed by some truly amazing artists working in the fields of fantasy, science fiction and horror. We know that when this baby rolls out of Hazardous Press in the fall, the artwork will really help make the book something special and we hope you’ll think so, too.

Currently, you can expect to see eye candy from 2014 Word Fantasy Award nominee, Galen Dara (www.galendara.com) as well as the incredibly talented Vincent Chong (www.vincentchong-art.co.uk) and Paul Carrick (www.nightserpent.com.)

It’s going to be a darkly beautiful thing.
