September Clarkesworld Cover

My boys and I like to watch “giant monster flattens city” movies.  When I saw Chen Lin’s “Big Octopus”, I knew I just had to have it.  Now it will be the cover for issue #12 of Clarkesworld Magazine.

    • We only purchase the rights to use these as covers, so I can’t offer prints. The original work can be found on deviantArt, but he doesn’t have it set up for a print. There is an option on this page for you to request that he offer it as one.
