In TSP, its a lion-headed creature with a tail that shot poisoned darts ... a rather interesting creature.

Can we have a pic of the cover plz? Or is it copyrighted???

srin: the prologue to TMS (link in sidebar) will explain.

kanti: man-headed lion, actually, but thanks. copyright issues re cover of my own book not likely to be major hassle for me:) i realize this post should come with an image, but its not really a cover until titling etc has been done - so far all i have is an image. but covers for manticore (and new simoqin) should be ready v soon.

Sorry for the slip-up.

The cover would be just fine even without the titling an' all, but post it when you want to.

I have a question about the old Simoquin Cover. Who's the guy with blusih skin at the top of the page whose eyebrows are visible only?

And do we get a hint as to how the main characters look like in teh new covers?

pip squeak: i don't think anyone, not even the artist, knows whose eyes (or eyebrows) they are. maybe they're ravian eyes? (sinister music)

Also, one thinks it fair to keep one you forewarned- if and when you come down to this city of beans, one might have to interview you. oh frabjous day!

I had to create a non-blog just to ask you this, but...did you write the Wikipedia entry for Manticore? I read it and thought it sounded like you, and then I got all Sherlock Holmes i.e. I decided to ask you.
