Starting this week, anxious readers can purchase access to a new desktop picture featuring the artwork to the upcoming fourth chapter of The Circle Weave. The artwork for the new cover features a mysteriously glowing image of Rowan, sword raised in preparation for battle. Behind him can be seen the image of a large, tangled mass emerging from the misty wood.
The new picture is available at http://www.circleweave.com/bricabrac/desktops.shtml, but unlike the other desktop pictures there, this one is not available for free. Series creator Indigo Kelleigh has chosen to make the download for each individual screen resolution available for the cost of a five-cent 'donation', made possible thanks to the new micropayment solution called BitPass (http://www.bitpass.com).

Artist Darrin Stephens, who's dazzling artistry is showcased on the Modern Pulp Comic "Lucifer Fawkes", brings an original scifi tale to Creature Feature Comics (www.creature-features.com) called "FireAnt".
"FireAnt" is the story of a dangerous caste system among slaves in a mining society at the center of the earth who mine the precious ore known as "Life Gems" which are crucial for the survival of the slaves' rock-like molten overseers known simply as "The Masters". One slave (Fireant) finds relics of a mythical society that existed beyond the darkness and the caves at the earths core. A place of sunshine and wide open spaces called "The Surface". Given hope for the very first time in life, Fireant becomes determined to find out if this mythic place exists--even at the cost of his own life.
