Ever sat in a crowded place, bored or distracted, until someone walks by with something that just draws your attention – whether you meant it to or not? Think of that reaction as a reader walks by with the eye-catching artwork of James R. Powell featuring the title “Phobophobia”. Moreover, the cover is aptly made to draw a new reader into tales of fear.

From Goodreads:
There is nothing to fear but fear itself…Twenty six original tales of horror by established masters of terror and talented new voices lie within this Lexicon of Fear.Beware the dark power of words in BIBLIOPHOBIA…a carnival double act made in Hell can be found in the clown cemetery in COULROPHOBIA…an artist loses his power to create ice sculptures because of his fear of cold in FRIGOPHOBIA, but that is the least of his problems as his therapist suffers the same phobia…The fear of open spaces manifests itself in KENOPHOBIA, a tale of the ultimate emptiness – the Great Void that awaits us all…the fear of beautiful women is fully justified in VENUSTROPHOBIA, a tale of futile defence against the Succubus……but beware: the cure may be worse…Denying yourself a place in Heaven is one way to avoid JESUSPHOBIA, but the only alternative means Hell to pay…a playwright fights his fear of the colour yellow by creating an unusual addition to his Dramatis Personae in XANTHOPHOBIA…a Witchfinder’s fear of open water will only be relieved by imbibing one of two deathly fluids in AQUAPHOBIA…and a widower follows the age-old advice of turning to face your fear in QIQIRN, only to uncover the true nature of an Inuit dog spirit that carries the essence of cold terror from its ancient homeland into the realm of human grief…Open the pages. It is time to learn your A to Dread..

While some stories are better than others, there is a little bit of each of them in the artwork presented by James R. Powell. Kudos to him for doing such a delightful job! Look for a new rendition from him in a September 1, 2012 novella release to be known as “Dead Education’s Army Book One: Flesh Code” by Alan Dale.

Michael Bielaczyc has been making art his whole life. He has been selling and showing work since 1995, when he self published his own comic book. Going back to college at 25, he decided that art was going to be his main focus in life. In 2001, he started an art company, Aradani Studios, with his brother Paul. Together they have shown and worked in shows across America selling both their artwork and costuming. While Michael has worked for such popular role-playing franchises as Dragonlance and Castlemourn, his real passion is for his personal work. He works in mediums from oil paint to latex prosthetics, video to graphite. You can see his work at http://www.michaelbielaczyc.com .

Paul Bielaczyc in his own words: “I have been drawing and whatnot since as long as I can remember. Any spot in my school notebooks that didn’t have notes were filled with sketches. I drew mostly from the D&D adventures that my brother ran, as well as the fantasy books I was reading. I did a few pieces based on Terry Brooks’ Shannara series, but focusing on being a nerd, I didn’t have much time for art in high school.

When I got to college I dual majored in Computer Science and Art History. I minored in Studio Art, and took as many art classes as my schedule allowed. I seemed to be pursuing a career in art or art education, but decided to try graduate school in Computer Science. I graduated in 2004 with a Master’s in CS, but again switched paths and returned to my art interests. Mike, my brother, and I co-own Aradani Studios, a costuming and art company that we founded in 2002. We travel mostly in the Southeast United States, to various conventions and Renaissance Festivals, selling our art, and our ears.

I currently call Nashville, TN my home, and don’t see that changing for quite some time. This is where my friends, my family, and my career is. When I first posted this bio, I said that, “I still have no idea what I want to do with my life.” Well, in those 4 years that I wrote that, I think I have found my calling. At the age of 26, I won the most prestigious fantasy art award there is, the Chesley Award. Mike and I have slowly but steadily grown this business into something that now employees other people! And most importantly, I love what I do, and I truly enjoy being able to talk about my art with people, and have a dialogue with them.”

Come out and see them!
