I am so very pleased to share the cover art for my noir novella Extricate which will be out next month from Fox Spirit Books. This delicious art is by the wonderful Sarah Langton, who has also produced the very fine series of Fox Pocket anthologies (my story “Headless in Bury” will be in a forthcoming volume, Missing Monarchs).
The essence of superb cover art is that it conveys the complicated idea of the plot and the ambivalence of the story in a single static image. I could not be much happier than when I gaze upon this loveliness.
And yes, the title was inspired by The Fall. Of course. Funny thing: I wrote this last year over the Thanksgiving holiday while I was in NY. Being useless in the kitchen, I only had to entertain the chef while typing away surreptitiously.
