launch of the lowest heaven

The skies obliged for last night's launch of The Lowest Heaven short story anthology. Look at that low sky over the National Maritime Museum.

And gaze upon this lovely line-up of writers! Head of Jurassic London, Jared Shurin, gave a welcome speech and we had three readings right there under the collection of figureheads (which were formerly housed in the Cutty Sark).

Look at this lovely cover artwork by Joey Hi-Fi! The limited-edition luxury edition of the book also has colour plates from the National Maritime Museum's image collection. (They'll be in black and white in the paperback version.) You can read an interview with Joey about the artwork here on the NMM's blog. The inside's beautiful, too, with a lovely embossed inside cover design and gorgeous printing.
