Children of Gaia: War & Horses is here! After a successful Kickstarter campaign, the first dime-store western set in the Children of Gaia sci-fi-fantasy universe has arrived. And that means it’s time to party!
About the Party
Tonight, in celebration of the book’s release, the creators of this unique illustrated novel will be in one place—digitally. Starting at 5:00 p.m. Mountain Time (that’s 7:00 Eastern/4:00 Pacific), co-illustrator Jayel Draco and editor Lynsey G. will live-stream on Twitch from Oneshi Press Headquarters. Meanwhile, co-illustrator Chris Covelli and author Peter Lampasona will join via live voice chat.
The launch party will continue for several hours. So stop by the Oneshi Press Twitch channel anytime this evening to say hi! We’ll show off the gorgeous illustrated book, give you a peek at the illustrations, answer questions from the audience, perform live readings, give away a copy of War & Horses, and toast to its success. (That’s right, Jayel and Lynsey have a bottle of Oneshi Press’s own shweet shpirit—Shwiskey!) RSVP to the event in advance, or just join the party on tonight at the Oneshi Press Twitch channel!
About the Book
War & Horses is an action-packed, gun-slinging adventure. But it’s also a weird western fantasy novel like no other. Peter Lampasona’s stylized prose pairs with Chris Covelli and Jayel Draco’s photo-plate- and etching-style illustrations. The end result is a stunning peek into a world like of our own American Wild West. Except here, horses have horns, the frontier is long gone, and political intrigue comes with history, guns, and grit.
“In War & Horses,” says author Peter Lampasona, “there are different levels of mythology that really reflect the old Western dime novels that this book based on. But War & Horses is something that no one’s ever entirely seen before.”
