In late 2005, my story “Sobek’s Tears” was published in pro Polish SF magazine Nowa Fantastyka. It was an awesome experience for me as it was my first translated story, my first European sale (and a good one, too!), the NF team were fantastic to work with, and the illustrations that accompanied my story … stunning!
When I first spruiked the story and its illustrations, I incorrectly attributed the artist of those illustrations. Today, artist Tomasz Jedrzejowski wrote to me to gently correct that mistake. I’ve since amended my original post and apologised to Tomasz.
Tomasz’s artwork is spectacular. Although you don’t get the grandeur of seeing the art as it was intended (in all its A4 glory), here is one of the two illustrations that accompanied “Sobek’s Tears” (click to enlarge):
You can check out more of Tomasz Jedrzejowski’s art at his Deviantart site.
Incidentally, I’ve just republished “Sobek’s Tears” in my ebook Apocrypha Sequence: Divinity (stories of gods running amok!). “Sobek’s Tears” is the story of Makhet of Abydos, an Egyptian commander who loses everything to the Ten Plagues of Moses. With the aid of the crocodile god Sobek, Makhet sets out to exact bloody revenge against Moses and his people during their exodus.
