Gnomon Chase Cosplay 2.0 - Gauntlet Vambraces
Gnomon Chase is the mysterious armored gunslinger from my space-western novels. I built a cosplay of this character using cardstock and Bondo. However, the suit weighed 50 lbs! I have started a second version of the costume using EVA foam. These gauntlet vambraces were the first thing I tackled. The difference? The pepakura versions are about 5 - 10 pounds. The EVA versions are about 5 - 10 ounces! I painted the foam using black Plasti Dip, black 2-in-1 Krylon Maxx, and the base color is Krylon satin brushed-nickel. Then I weathered it using a black wash and silver Rub-n-Buff. www.facebook.com/GnomonChase

Ms. Keym Attacks - Alternate
This is an alternate version of "Ms. Keym Attacks". It's the exact same piece of artwork that I drew by hand and colored digitally. However, I applied a filter from the free Photoshop Express app called Glow. Although the background is not supposed to be twin suns, I still loved the results. It's actually supposed to be a giant gas planet and its first moon behind her. Ms. Keym is having an adventure on the sixth moon of the system. In addition to showing that Ms. Keym is a powerful woman, it also is designed to convey that she doesn't just rely on her weapons - her body is a force to be reckoned with. www.facebook.com/Cowgirl.Keym

Enter Ms. Keym
Ms. Keym knows how to make a grand entrance! Both in her debut in the 2008 novel - West World, and in her soon-to-be-released solo adventure - Death Follows Ms. Keym - this gunslinger is introduced back lit, walking through the swinging doors of a saloon. www.facebook.com/cowgirl.keym

Aberrant Dreams presents Battle for West World by Ed Crandell

Tunnel Hill, GA February 2014—Atlanta-based publisher Aberrant Dreams is proud to present Battle for West World, the third novel by Tunnel Hill, GA, resident and author Ed Crandell.

Battle for West World is Crandell’s third and final novel in The West World Trilogy. The entire trilogy is a space western—it takes elements of the American West and transposes them to a backdrop of futuristic space frontiers. The novel series follows the adventures and character arc of an interstellar cowboy named Tom Shallowhorne and his path to realizing what being a true hero really involves.  Shallowhorne’s journey triumphantly culminates within the pages of Battle for West World.

The first two novels in the series—West World and Return to West World—were originally published through PublishAmerica.  However, on the sci-fi convention circuit, Crandell caught the attention of speculative fiction publisher, Aberrant Dreams.  They are publishing Battle for West World, and will be republishing West World and Return to West World in the very near future.

Battle for West World is truly unique.  The entire novel, excluding the prologue and epilogue, is one action scene told in “real time,” with the chapter titles actually being time markers.  As an example, the first chapter is entitled “11:38 A.M.”  The action and dialogue of that chapter adds up to taking two minutes in real time, so the next chapter is called “11:40 A.M.”  This process continues throughout the two hours and thirty-seven minutes of the battle detailed in the rest of the novel.  The story promises to be an action-packed adventure!  The series is best described as fun and thoughtful entertainment, and is presented in a way that is appropriate for readers of all ages.

Battle for West World will be 317 pages long, and is attractively presented in a 6”x9” paperback format that includes cover and interior artwork by the author. Printed copies will be available through Barnes and Noble and Amazon, as well as the electronic Kindle format. The book will debut February 21, 2014 at Con Nooga, Chattanooga’s Multi-Fandom Convention, being held at the Chattanooga Convention Center February 21–23. Ed Crandell will be on hand to sign copies of Battle for West World.
