Guest Post: Last Cities of Earth

One last post for the Kickstarter Last Cities of Earth. I'll say, the images of these cities is worth picking up. I am loving these images! Hope you are enjoying them as well.

If you would like to pledge and join to get the anthology, head over to the Kickstarter now. There is only a few short days left.

LAST CITIES OF EARTH by Kevin J. Anderson

My friend Jeff Sturgeon is an amazing artist with an amazing imagination. I have watched him exhibit at science fiction conventions with his gorgeous and innovative paintings on burnished metal, but over the past several years Jeff has been possessed by a very energetic and demanding muse.

He’s developed a breathtaking science fiction concept, THE LAST CITIES OF EARTH, a future after the explosion of the great Yellowstone caldera makes the surface of the world uninhabitable, but with enough forewarning, the major cities have used new technology to levitate themselves above the clouds. Now, centuries have passed, and each city has developed its own culture, its own airships, and a new trading network is evolving. The ideas abound, and Jeff has created painting after painting of city after city.

New Las Vegas
With his new project, Jeff is opening it up to other authors, so that we each write a story based on a particular city. John Pitts, Jody Lynn Nye, Ian Douglas, Brenda Cooper, Mike Resnick, David Gerrold, and others. I am going to write about glitzy and seamy New Las Vegas and a group of genetically modified avian airship navigators. Each painting inspires a story, and all stories will be collected in an anthology.

But that only happens if the Kickstarter funds. One week remains, if you’d like to contribute. Help us meet our goal at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1899900962/jeff-sturgeons-last-cities-of-earth-the-illustrate?ref=nav_search
