This was one of the best commissions to date! Fantasy & Science Fiction contacted me saying: “We have a story that seems like it’s meant for a Maurizio Manzieri cover!”: I accepted immediately of course and here you can see the result for the lovely story “Starlight Express” by Michael Swanwick. The author dedicated an entry of his blog to the artwork: http://floggingbabel.blogspot.it/2017/08/starlight-express-by-maurizio-manzieri.html
Maurizio, I just love this illustration. It’s so beautiful and evocative.
Thanks a lot, Mark!
