I come home from a lovely day out with my family and find Nikita, Dagstine and an unknown (to me) Stephen Bacon forming a nice circle jerk over Nikita;s cover for TP5 (the world’s first TP with shit inside and out). Where, you ask? Well Shocklines, of course. http://shocklinesforum.yuku.com/topic/5983.
Here’s a clue Nick; anytime dagstine says something nice-run in the other direction. As has been proven over at TRN and ETT, Dagstine is NOT your friend. He’s not anyone’s friend. Lorenzo Dagostino cares only for himself and what others may do for him. And considering Dungstain’s hatchet job on you Nikita, why aren’t you frothing at the mouth with him?
Nikita writes: “ I am even blowing the dusk off of a 35mm camera for future covers they come in handy in a pinch too.” How one blows dusk off anything, let alone a 35mm camera, is anyone’s guess.
He also posted a picture for Ethereal Gazette, his local author “anthology”. The same one he’s been begging people to submit for and everyone with a brain has stayed away from. All I can tell is that the “photo” is blue. What it’s supposed to be is a mystery. At least there’s only 3 font types on this one as opposed to 8 on the abortion of a cover for TP5.
Dagstine compliments Nikita on his fonts. Nikita responds by saying he has a large collection. That’s a given, as he puts them all on his cover.
however the biggest laugh comes from Stephen Bacon who wrote, “I normally prefer illustrations over photographs as cover artwork, but I think that’s the best photo cover I’ve seen in a long time.”
Stephen, if that’s the best cover you’ve seen in a long time, you need to visit more bookstores.
