Gareth W. Rice

I love this cover designed by Gareth W. Rice for a series of short stories written by Zach Watkins. Rice gives special thanks to a programmer for the coding of the particles on the cover, and so I can only assume that was created with Processing or a similar language. You know I love that. [...]
