6 Nights of Midnight - 6 - The Face of Midnight

Sunday, June 19th, 2011

If you wanted to name the face of Midnight, where would you look?  To the mayor, Archibald Carrington, better known as the Duke, who may or may not have killed a man when he was a professional boxer?  To the underworld figures, Carlos Vallmitjana perhaps, or the legendary Uncle Knuckles, who is probably not even […]

6 Nights of Midnight - 5 - The Sharp Touch of Shadows

Saturday, June 18th, 2011

The kid from Shanghai likes to call himself Duke.  He doesn’t realize the name’s already been taken.  He’s been in Midnight only two nights.  He doesn’t really understand what happened.  He’d been running, yes, and hiding, but he never meant to disappear with such finality.
He sticks to the shadows.  It’s easy to do so in […]

6 Nights of Midnight - 4 - The Cellar

Friday, June 17th, 2011

A child with an unknown key will believe it unlocks treasure until proven otherwise.  Tommy was just such a child, thirteen years old, ready for adventure and romance, and he just happened to come into possession of a great old brass key.
The other children marveled at it.  Though tarnished and, in some places, slightly green–Tommy […]

6 Nights of Midnight - 3 - Isabella

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

There’s a hot young artist in Midnight named Isabella.  She does these wild, nearly abstract things on huge canvasses.  While painting, she wears a red dress and heels and a modest bit of gold jewelry, maybe earrings, maybe a necklace or a bracelet.
It’s not the art so much as the spectacle.  Her paintings are a […]

6 Nights of Midnight - 2 - The Dreamer

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

Under the streets of Midnight, beneath the subways and sewers, hidden from the mapped apartments and known hovels and illicit meeting places, deeper still than any of that, a woman wears chains.
Though thin, the chains are strong.  They bind her wrists together and, with a little leeway, bind her to the floor.  She has a […]

6 Nights of Midnight - 1 - Motorcycle Race

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

There’s a ramp that leads straight out of Midnight.  But it doesn’t go far.  It’s four lanes wide and stops abruptly between two massive pillars.  A brief bit of asphalt balances precariously on the next pillar, but it’s not a jump for the weak of heart.  Beyond that…well, they say if you can get that […]

Portrait 19/52

Monday, June 13th, 2011

Twins. Oh, and some birds.
In other news, Once Upon a Time in Midnight goes up for pre-order soon. You’ll want to check out Thunderstorm Books if you’re interested. It’s part of a set with two Brian Keene books. All three photographic covers were shot and processed by me.
Yes, later this year we’ll also see DarkWalker. […]
