Now Available: A Set of Lines

A Set of Lines front cover

A Set of Lines: a novel by S. D. Stewart

Last night I drew all night. I copied the images from the textbook and then I drew them again freehand—I made them move on the page, lengthened the lines and darkened the centers.

The tree, the river, the old textbook—a triptych with shifting borders hangs in a place where dreams and memories intersect. Omission and loss haunt those who live here, suspended as they are in an endless struggle to connect. Contracting and expanding as it progresses, the narrative of their existence ever-circles around a shrouded core.

With cover design and interior illustrations by Nate Dorr, who since 2017 has been quietly depicting the beauty of decaying, mutated biospheres in his Disaster Landforms series.

Interior design and layout wizardry by Nathan Grover.

    OMG, in love with Nate Dorr’s art 😍

    • I hope you check out his site. He has originals for sale on Etsy! As someone who has one hanging on my wall, I can attest that they hold their value well.

  3. Awesome! It’ll be a celebratory purchase as soon as I get a source of income again!

    • Sorry to hear of your employment troubles. These are hard times, for sure. I hope you find something soon!

  4. Looks great, Sean – all the best with getting it out there and read! Looking forward to reading it myself, of course. Hope all’s well with you in these times.

    • Thanks, Dan. Your support and encouragement, as always, means a lot. I’m doing okay, all things considered. Hope you’re hanging in there, as well. Miss seeing you around! (and what about that novel of yours, hmm?)

      • Likewise, I can’t complain. That novel of mine needs a rewrite, or scrapping, I can’t decide which. But an earlier one is finally going to see the light of day before too long, so there’s that. More anon!

    • Thanks for your support, Taidgh! It’s good to hear from you. Hope my letter arrived.
