Sitting here I decide to see if I can't improve my current dismal mood by looking at "Grognardia" which points out Squadron Books' Down in the Dungeon. Monster Brains has a far more complete writeup, with all pictures available at the equivalent Flickr gallery. The general thematic feel is as if a very young John Jakes had tried writing Lord of the Rings, after a late night bender spent watching Star Wars.

These are either some of the worst fantasy illustrations ever or the most fuckin' AWESOME or very probably both. Had I only seen this in the 80s I am sure that it would rank way up there with the Fiend Folio, The Warlock of Firetop Mountain and Alexander Nevsky as things which would forever change how I saw fantasy.

This could just be directions down the road, and it would still be badass.



And, what goes better with atonal flute and background drone than ruined places in Japan?

Oh right. It could be raining.
