June Cover Art

It should be fairly obvious by now that I don’t make any effort to tie the Clarkesworld Magazine cover art to a particular story. I like being free from restrictions when it comes to the art I feel like featuring that month. Sometimes, however, it seems like fate intervenes and insists that I pay attention to both.

One of our June stories will be “Clockwork Chickadee” by Mary Robinette Kowal. A couple of days after we bought this story, I was browsing Eli Effenberger’s gallery and found something that screamed “buy me!”  As a result, June will be a month of Clockwork Chickadees and Wind-up Ducks.

  1. Wow, I like that cover. I don’t know that I’d put it on the wall because it would totally creep me out, but I like it.

  2. This is so evocative! Great choice, wonderful artist.

  3. Man, I so wish you were print just because of these covers! I’d have been buying each issue from the start with how impressive this package is and has been!
