Sailing the wine dark sea
Oh, wow! This is awesome. I especially love the "Fear and Wonder" down by the tail. Long live speculative fiction!
You'll be shocked, SHOCKED, to know that I have an opinion about SciFi and Fantasy in relation to other literature. I think it might be time to post that to my blog. If I run out of time today, I'll reply here with the thumbnail scetch version...
There's a surprising amount of not-SciFi on that SciFi history chart. Neat.
I absolutely love the detail of this illustration, Tony. It looks like a living and breathing creature with the genres coursing through its bizarre intestinal-looking body. Funny how ALICE IN WONDERLAND grows like a boil off its back.
This is amazing. Did you create this, Tony?
@K.M. Weiland: It's fantastic, isn't it?@D. Paul: They draw from the same headwaters, but diverge in important respects.@John: The links run deep, don't they?@Ezzy: I love the way you can wander this image and find old stories you read decades ago.@Jacqui: I agree completely that it's amazing. I would LOVE to be able to say that I had created it, or had the skill and/or knowledge necessary to have done so. Alas, this was something I came across out there in the wide world.
