An Artist’s Take on Darkness
I got all excited when I first spotted the November 2013 issue of Ellery Queen. I saw my name on the cover next to Charlaine Harris’, and my brain did a little loop-de-loop. Then I opened the magazine and discovered the stunning pen-and-ink drawing the magazine commissioned to go with my story, “Darkness in the City of Light.” The artist’s name is Allen Davis, and he managed to capture the essence of Annie and Blythe, while rendering the artwork above Notre Dame’s “Judgement Day” portal to perfection. It amazed me the first time I saw it, and it still does.
