Vincent’s Art Direction: So here’s what I’m thinking. A man and a woman in a landfill. I want the woman tastefully nude, so have the man covering her naughty bits even though they’re standing about twenty feet apart. Lastly, have an army of giant preying mantises coming over the hill.

Alessandra’s Art Direction:It’s short fiction by some of the best, most respected science fiction authors in the field. So I want… A Viking with a bottom for a face! Riding the world’s most exhausted-looking dinosaur horse! With its tongue hanging out! Through a Dali-esque landscape out of the Old West! And give the Viking kind of … Samurai armor!
