From an entertaining interview of Ian Miller over at Sci-Fi-O-Rama. Check it out for Miller’s thoughts on his upcoming art collection The Art of Ian Miller and on the various series he’s illustrated — out of Tolkien, Bradbury, and Lovecraft, Miller enjoys Mervyn Peake’s Gormenghast trilogy the most. I have to admit, it does fit his sense of style.

Check out the interview, and then buy the book.

Clathrus archeri | ©Steve Reekie   (Aotearoa, New Zealand)
A phalloid fungi (Phallales - Pallaceae) commonly known as Devil’s fingers or Octopus stinkhorn, quite distinctive by its form, color and foul-smelling.
Clathrus archeri is native to Australia and New Zealand, and has been introduced in parts of Europe, North America and the United Kingdom.
The Octopus stinkhorn has a gelatinous egg stage from which the fruitbody arises, its four to eight reddish arms each coated with dark, foul-smelling tissue. The unpleasant odor attracts flies which disperse the spores.
