Creating the cover for my Sci-fi Novel – Star

Star has just become available in kindle form. The paperback will be available shortly.

I had rewritten/edited a book that I originally wrote in the eighties. It was nice to reconnect. When I had completed it I set about the cover.

Because of copyright there is a great difficulty in obtaining the right type of photos to use in a Sci-fi setting.

The novel was centred around the sixties – except that I had put the events into an intergalactic situation, a thousand years in the future. the main character is an intergalactic Rockstar – one Zargos Ecstasy.

He is a larger than life conglomeration of Mick Jagger, Jim Morrison, Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix. I had some photos I had taken of Arthur Brown and some I had taken of the moon. I thought I could use these and somehow amalgamate them together.

My son Henry did some work on Arthur but my skills with computers and design were limited.

I played about a little with Paint:

The trouble was that Zargos was a young dude living in 30167 ACV. Arthur was a little past the first flush of youth and I wanted something futuristic and intergalactic.

Matthias Krüger came in http://www.newington.blue/ . He’s a designer and offered to have a go.  He took the images and created something that hit the mark. He melded the moon and Arthur. I was delighted with the result!

I slotted the creation into the template. Unfortunately it slightly trimmed the edges But I still liked the end result. I thought it was very striking.

Thanks Matt!

Star – Science Fiction novel – The Sixties on an intergalactic scale!

I completed my editing of Star last night! It’s a bit of an epic!

I have put the sixties into the future in an intergalactic setting. My main character, Zargos Ecstasy, is a composite of Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Arthur Brown, Mick Jagger and David Bowie.

The Federation is in turmoil. The Troman war rages. There are civil rights issues with the Androvians.

Youth is in rebellion and Zargos Ecstasy and the Terminal Brain Grope are the biggest Underground band on the scene leading the way. Zargos’s lyrics, poetic and full of social bite, reflect the mood.

But dark forces are at work. Big business, politicians and the underworld are interested.

Zargos is caught in the middle.

If you lived through the sixties you’ll recognise the scenes – all-be-it against an intergalactic backdrop.

This is the Sixties all over again!

Poetry – Between

Between

 

Between the atoms and the stars

Lies

The world of in between,

In which nothing is as it seems.

An unreality

In which we dream

And walk upon solid ground

And believe

One is more substantial than the other.

 

Opher – 24.4.2020

 

 

It fascinates me to think of the life we live. We think we live in some kind of reality but we do not. We are in between realities.

Solidity is an illusion. It is not based on substance – merely a forcefield.

The arc of the stars – the distance and speed are beyond our comprehension.

Infinity, atoms and galaxies are the reality.

The life we live is based on strange forces, microscopic and macroscopic, of which we only receive a glimpse.
