I love journals. I love the feel of the paper in my hands and the stroke of a pen on the page, don’t you? I also enjoy looking at journals and sketchbooks made by artists, and these travel journals by José Naranja give me wanderlust. I can imagine Inez, my Invisible Sun character, keeping a journal like this.

Have you heard of Tea and Creatures by Brynn Metheney? Brynn writes, “I like to draw creatures while I drink tea. These quick studies provide me with time and space to get warmed up for client work and my own projects. …I’ve included some of my favorite warm-ups from the last few months in this book, Tea and Creatures.”




In the far-future Ninth World, claves of Aeon Priests help their community understand and use the mysterious technologies of the past. But what happens when one of these priests uses this knowledge and power to exploit the people who depend on them? In the region of Steremoss, a group of brave individuals are determined to resist this oppression from the shadows. They call themselves the Night Clave.

The Night Clave is an official novel set in the Numenera world, and is presented as a deluxe, limited hardcover edition.
