Blog article 5 of 5
by Pedro Panhoca.

http://www.peterandrewjones.net/blog-sa2024.htm.

The cover of
The Sword of the Samurai by Peter Andrew Jones shows what is perhaps the pit of demons, with a corpse-like samurai in the foreground staring at the reader-player even before the adventure begins.

The red lake with skeletons and the unique path that (perhaps) leads to the volcano in the background give a good idea of the dangers that the reader-player will have to overcome.

Any wrong turn and the pond will gain another “swimmer”.

Peter Andrew Jones created the cover art for many of Thomson’s gamebooks, including “The Sword of the Samurai”. Set on the fictional continent of Khul, in the world of Titan (where the adventures of many other “Fighting Fantasy” gamebooks take place), the reader-player must travel to the Well of Demons, help those in need and fight enemies, then try to win the final showdown for the Dai-Katana. This is a gamebook that is different from the other fantasy titles in the pioneering gamebook franchise, mainly because it switches from Tolkenian fantasy to fantastic feudal Japan.

After years as a (co-)author, Jamie Thomsom went on to work full-time in video game development at Eidos Interactive, publisher of “Tomb Raider”. In 1999, he raised over £1 million to set up his own game development company, Black Cactus. “Warrior Kings” and “Warrior Kings: Battles” were two of his productions, which he then closed down. He invested in a new start-up, Fabled Lands LLP, an intellectual property development company specialising in his own titles to be released as comics, novels and iPhone apps.

Jamie Thomson was born in Iran on 14 November 1958. He is a British writer, editor and games developer. He grew up in Brighton and met one of his co-authors, Mark Smith, at Brighton College. He graduated from the University of Kent with a degree in politics and government.
Thomson was assistant editor of “White Dwarf” magazine from 1981 to 1984 and a columnist for Games Workshop’s “Warlock”. There, he was one of the developers of the computer game “The Tower of Despair”.

From 1984 onwards, he was a prolific and best-selling author. One of his most successful series was “The Way of the Tiger”, six sequential gamebooks whose protagonist is a ninja. Written with Mark Smith, his gamebooks have been published in Japan, France, the USA, Italy and Sweden. Other gamebook series written by him were “Duel Master”, “Falcon”, (all co-written with Mark Smith) and “Fabled Lands” (co-written with Dave Morris). He also co-wrote three gamebooks for the “Fighting Fantasy” series: “Talisman of Death”, “Sword of the Samurai” (again with Mark Smith) and “The Keep of the Lich Lord” (again with Dave Morris).

Blog article 3of 3
by Pedro Panhoca.

http://www.peterandrewjones.net/blog-sa2024.htm.

John Varley’s style is very reminiscent of Robert A. Heinlein’s, both in its descriptive writing style and in its themes of societies and free love.
Winner of the Nebula (1979), Hugo (1980) and Locus (1980) awards, "Titan" is the first book in the “Gaea Trilogy”. It tells of an expedition to Saturn where the protagonists encounter a centaur people, aliens, angels and a strange “torus”, all with sudden changes in behavior for no reason and a lot of unpredictability.

Peter Andrew Jones brought to life the cover art, which depicts a strange tentacled monster in the foreground while a vertical ship is in the background. This is perhaps the most enigmatic artwork, as no key element of the narrative is presented explicitly. The strange creature, the vast universe in the background, and the ship in an unusual position, however, disturb and instigate the reader to get to know this new world.

http://www.peterandrewjones.net/blog-sa2024.htm.

John Varley wrote several novels, his first attempt being “Gas Giant”, and several short stories, collected in the series “The Eight Worlds”. These stories take place a century or two after a race of mysterious and omnipotent aliens, the Invaders, have almost completely eradicated humans from Earth (they consider whales and dolphins to be the superior terrestrial life forms and humans just a dangerous infestation). But human beings have inhabited practically every other corner of the solar system, often using biological modifications learnt, in part, by listening to alien communications.

“Overdrawn at the Memory Bank” was adapted and televised on PBS in 1983. In addition, two of his short stories – “Options” and “Blue Champagne” – were adapted into episodes of the Sci-Fi Channel’s short-lived TV series Welcome to Paradox in 1998. In the Hollywood industry, he contributed to the writing of the film Millennium.

John Varley was born in Austin, Texas, but grew up in Fort Worth and later moved to Port Arthur. He also lived in places like Portland, Eugene, Oregon, New York, San Francisco, Berkeley and Los Angeles throughout his life.

He under-graduated from Netherlander High School and then went to Michigan State University thanks to a national merit scholarship. He went on to study Physics and then English, but then dropped out and moved to Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco. There, he worked at various unskilled jobs, depended on St Anthony’s Mission for meals and even begged.

Then he decided to venture out as a writer.

"ARCHIVE MAINTENANCE DAY"
  (6 of 6)

Sorting through my portfolio of printer's proofs.


Another of the paintings I created for Orbit Books/Futura Publications series.
In The Ocean of Night, by Gregory Benford.

This was a risk - back then, publishers were very demanding on space hardware images, and the idea of making the spaceship very small, was considered risky.

But I felt that as long as it was perceived to be in an untypical composition, it could work.

It did!

W.H.Smith, then the UK's biggest bookshop chain, decided they would "take any book that had PAJ cover art" - this was because the UK's typical book edition length/sales volume was 9,500 copies, but I had accelerated it to just under 100,000 copies.

So, whilst cover proofs were used by publisher's sales reps, out on the road in their cars, driving around the county into high street shops to show shop managers the range of books that could be supplied to them, their workload was reduced, as they did not need to bother showing proofs with my paintings on.

The shop manager would still need to respond with a 'yes" as the sales rep quickly flipped through their folder of proofs and tick an order box with a Biro pen, but didn't have to stop and consider "yes or no."

Publishers still supplied me with copies for my portfolio because whilst they didn't need to, they still got printed, embedded in the overall printing procedure for all the publisher's books that month.

Available, signed by me, if you'd like one.
Price on application.

Peter Andrew Jones was responsible for illustrating the cover art for Norman. The sombre atmosphere of the scene emphasises the tone of mystery and darkness. The unusual presence of a knight apparently threatening a defenceless lady also makes the reader curious. It is precisely in this environment that the reader will explore this universe through some illuminated parts.

The Gorean Saga is a long-running series of adventure and science fantasy novels, which began in December 1966 with “Tarnsman of Gor”, encountered a cancellation in its continuity for many years, until it was resumed in 2001 with the publication of “Witness of Gor”. In addition to this, Norman has also produced a separate science fiction series called “Telnarian Histories”, as well as other works of fiction, non-fiction and a collection of short stories.

Norman said that the three biggest influences on his work are Homer, Freud and Nietzsche. According to him, the books in the “Gor” series are also intellectual, philosophical and psychological. Themes such as slavery and characteristics of modern society are criticised, very reminiscent of the lifestyle of Ancient Rome.

In Brazil, the French edition (with another creation by PAJ) played a key role in creating a gamebook culture in the country: Osmar Saraiva, publisher of Marques Saraiva publishing house, was at the Frankfurt book fair and came across this edition, realising that this type of playful book could have a reader-player audience in Brazil. Saraiva was thus a “merchant of RPG culture” for Brazil, and from Rio de Janeiro the gamebooks soon gained readers-players all over the country.

“The Warlock of Firetop Mountain” also innovated with its cover art. Whereas book titles used to be at the top, in this gamebook the title is in the centre of the image. Peter Andrew Jones masterfully “stretched” the body of the conjured dragon to take the usual place of the titles, and his striking art made this (and some other) gamebooks eye-catching from cover to text. A later edition also had its cover art altered by the same artist, just as striking.

The difficulty of “The Warlock of Firetop Mountain” is considered easy, perhaps so as not to traumatise a novice reader-player. It is possible to beat the final boss with not too high attributes if the right choices are made.

Criticised by some for being too simple (since its authors Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson were not writers, but game designers) and acclaimed by lovers of nerd/geek culture in the 80s and 90s, this gamebook was a revolution in its time, and overcame the limitations of the first computer games and video games of the time. In this “solitaire RPG”, like all the others in the pioneering “Fighting Fantasy” series of gamebooks, the reader makes the hero's decisions and faces the consequences of their choices. There are many endings, but when you reach the 400th paragraph (the mini-chapters in the form of text boxes that make up this textual hybrid), the reader-player knows their best performance.

Blog article 1 of 1
by Pedro Panhoca.

John Kilian Houston Brunner was born on 24 September 1934 in Preston Crowmarsh, Oxfordshire, and died of a heart attack in Glasgow on 25 August 1995. He was a British author of science fiction novels and short stories, but also published articles and poems, especially in fanzines.

Brunner studied at St Andrew´s Prep School in Pangbourne. At the age of 17, he wrote his first novel, “Galactic Storm”, and published it under the pseudonym Gill Hunt (he would later use others such as K. H. Brunner, John Loxmith, Trevor Staines, Ellis Quick, Henry Crosstrees Jr. and Keith Woodcott). He then went on to study at Cheltenham College. He served as an officer in the Royal Air Force for two years (from 1953 to 1955) and married Marjorie Rosamond Sauer in 1958, the year he became a full-time writer.

He began by writing conventional space operas, later moving on to experimentalism. “The Jagged Orbit” (1969, winner of best science fiction novel and the BSFA award, both in 1970) has 100 chapters of text ranging from a single syllable to several pages, for example. Brunner possibly invented the term “worm” (in computing) and the prediction of the emergence of computer viruses in the novel “The Shockwave Rider”, as well as exploring previously rare topics such as genetic engineering, same-sex marriage, online encyclopaedias, the legalisation of cannabis and the development of Viagra. His books “Stand on Zanzibar” (1968, winner of the 1969 Hugo Award), “The Jagged Orbit” (1969), “The Sheep Look Up” (1972) and “The Shockwave Rider” (1975) form the “Club of Rome Quartet”, in honour of the Club of Rome, whose report “The Limits to Growth” (1972) warned of the terrible effects of overpopulation.

Brunner was an active member of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament organisation and wrote the lyrics to “The H-Bomb's Thunder”, which was sung at the Aldermaston Marches. The short stories “Some Lapse of Time” and “The Last Lonely Man” were adapted for TV in the BBC science fiction series “Out of the Unknown”, in series 1 (1965) and 3 (1969) respectively. For television, he also wrote the script for the science fiction film “The Terrornauts” (1967), by Amicus Productions.

The Italian version of “The Jagged Orbit” received a cover illustration by Peter Andrew Jones. The novel is set in the United States in 2014, when interracial conflicts have reached an untenable point. The Gottschalks, a mafia-like organisation, take advantage of this situation and sell weapons to anyone capable of buying them, and a division develops within the cartel itself. The cover art depicts, in a single image, the arrival of the future (with the presence of the spaceship), Earth’s submission to the new problems (by the crowded and passive crowd) and the possibility of technology making it its slave (with the robots giving the orders). A great summary and attractive resource for the reader who wants to know what 2014 was supposed to be like in the land of Uncle Sam.

by Pedro Panhoca.

An interesting article, albeit brief, found on the “Fonts in use” blog was dedicated to the gamebook “The Warlock of Firetop Mountain” and its board game and computer versions.

The author Florian Hardwig, in 2018, makes brief notes on the Bradley font used in the products that received the artwork of Peter Andrew Jones. The full text can be accessed at >
https://fontsinuse.com/uses/22948/the-warlock-of-firetop-mountain-gamebook-puff

Even though the author’s comments are brief, the article is worth a visit for the wealth of photos taken of the products, which go beyond the cover art.

A great source on fonts.

A now binding a book for a collector >
PAINTINGS OF SOUTH SHROPSHIRE

 The top of Hazler Hill, and the views from the top, overseeing much of Shropshire, and my discovery of paths for future easel-toting walks.

 As is always the case, it was “along the way”, in this case a simple bridleway called Snatchfields Lane, that I saw a simple sight that was a joy to behold.

 A yellow Wagtail caught in the mid-morning light that was so bright it even blessed the concrete fencepost with textures no painter could ignore.

 Everything has a character all of its own and I always defer to my first Art teacher’s words namely “you have to really see it, in order to paint it.”

 Thus what I call “visual vigilance” is a skill at least as valuable to a rambling painter as knowing how to paint.”

And, now, today is gluing and finessing day!

Back in history, Snailbeach Mine in Shropshire, not that far from the studio, was one of the biggest and richest lead mines in the Middle of what is now the UK, and I even read once that people used to travel from as far away as China, down the Silk Road, to come and purchase lead, so valuable was it and there is evidence that the Romans also mined there.

This painting was one I did of an old rusty tractor in a shed that was used as a winch for the mine shaft.
