Showing the Noblesse Oblige He is Known and Loved For


Lopsided Cat among hoi polloi. Gracious of him, really.

This picture among others showing the domestic bliss of the Scalzi household, and also our plant-tending proclivities, await you in this Flickr set.

The Face of the Ghost Brigades

This fellow purports to be the face you see on the cover of the Subterranean Press limited edition version of The Ghost Brigades; apparently he knows Vincent Chong, the artist, and Chong used his likeness. If true (and I don’t particularly have reason to doubt him), I think this is pretty neat; I was wondering who the model might have been. Personally I think it looked like actor Neal McDonough, and thus might have been based a bit on him, but this works for me, too (I also think it’s looks a bit like my childhood friend Tom Zimmer, but that’s clearly just me). And given who the likeness is supposed to be, it makes this picture strangely poignant.
