Artist Jeremy Shuback has produced a pair of fine fan-illustrations for my story Anda’s Game, which concerns a young girl’s adventures as a mercenary in a multiplayer game where gold-farmers use sweat-shops of other young girls to earn their living.
The first illo is We’re going to change that, chickens, you lot and me, from Liza the Organiza’s inspirational speech to the girls at Ada Lovelace Comprehensive School. The second is It was a noob avatar, just like the others, but not just like it after all, for it moved with purpose, backing away from her sword. And it spoke English — the scene where Anda finds herself beheading gold-farmers. (Thanks, Jeremy!)
