50 Years of the Society of Illos Annual

I had lunch with my friend Mark Korsak yesterday. He's been a hard at work putting together a book that covers 50 years of the Society of Illustrators annual. He showed me all of the images selected to be included. This was one tough job. Thousands of images, already chosen to be the best of their year, had to be whittled down to 500. There is no way for the book to be anything less than great.

I was happy to see sf/f well represented. While I crossed my fingers and hoped to see one, maybe two Tor covers, in the end I think I saw five or six of them. (Not that I was counting.)

What were the 5 or 6 Tor covers you saw?

I should say, until all of the "Congrats! You've been chosen!" letters go out. I think they are still fine tuning the curating.

That is definitely a book to look forward to.

Understand.

It's true. Over 25,000 images had to be sifted through to get to the final 500.

I think everyone will be pleased. It's a really exciting book. Every image is top notch and painsteakinglly considered. And it's full of surprises too.

I like a game which you need use 2moons di to play. If you want to be online to play this game, I can borrow 2moons gold to you. When you have 2moon dil, and than you can go on this game. Of cause, when you are first to play, you can buy 2moons dil. If you have enough cheap 2moons gold, you will be able to different games.

Do you like playing the game where you need to use flyff penya, when you do not have flyff money, you must borrow flyff gold from friends, or you buy flyff penya. If you get cheap penya, you can continue this game.
