Roger has worked rather too late, and just completed a little sketch of a nymph when he knocks over the ink. Knowing it's futile, he doesn't try to stop it; he just closes his eyes -- and opens them to see the nymph walked away.

He tries to deliver for a job only to find that his past -- an occasion where a client swore he had not delivered -- is still haunting him. And he sees his old friend and fellow artist Kevin doing a signing, along with his trophy wife Julia -- Kevin's ex-wife Donna, look

Wow. Whilst lacking the modernity of Libriomancer this managed to be hugely entertaining. I'm a bit of a sucker for this sort of novel, and this one pleased on all levels. A shame it had to be 22 years old to do that, but forsooth, it was fun.
A book in the genre of Libriomancer. Really enjoyed it. Action, sci fi, and a bit of Greek myth. Can't argue that at all.

An artist finds a way to make his paintings come to life trouble is, his rival has already figured out the system and vanishes the hero to live in a painting. Full of good fun and excitement, using the imagination of painting and ideas from sci if and other themes. Will the good guy win? Read on!
