Bob Eggleton’s Ancient Opar

I’ve been very fortunate to have Bob Eggleton illustrate a number of my books. The cover paintings for my duology of novellas set in Philip José Farmer’s Ancient Opar—Hadon, King of Opar and Blood of Ancient Opar—are particularly stunning and define, respectively, Opar and its adjoining valley in my mind. In fact, the artwork inspired scenes that I incorporated into the narrative of both novellas. Bob, of course, also painted a striking, apocalyptic panorama of Khokarsa, the larger empire of which Opar is a part, details of which grace the covers of the Restored Edition of Flight to Opar and The Song of Kwasin.
