PS Publishing uncovers artwork for Eric Brown’s forthcoming novella "Gilbert and Edgar on Mars"

United Kingdom-based PS Publishing recently uncovered science fiction, fantasy, and horror artist J.K. Potter’s artwork for "Gilbert and Edgar on Mars," a forthcoming novella written by British SF author Eric Brown. Scheduled to be published in mid 2009, the novella focuses on an encounter between G.K. Chesterton and Edgar Rice Burroughs. Here’s a synopsis, taken directly from PS Publishing’s website:

G.K. Chesterton, fantastical novelist, literary journalist, paradoxical poet and prolific short story writer penned more than a hundred books in his lifetime as well as countless articles and essays on every subject under the sun -- but only now can his travels across the face of the red planet be revealed.

In this exuberant novella Eric Brown recounts Chesterton's astounding adventures on Mars, his meeting with Edgar Rice Burroughs and his treatment at the hands of the Six Philosophers.

Why was Chesterton whisked away from planet Earth -- and will he ever return?

Eric Brown writes a monthly science fiction review column for Britain's Guardian newspaper and maintains his own website.
