It’s So You Created a Wormhole‘s United Kingdom release day. We’re very excited, primarily because we have a UK representative on the Wormhole team — Aled Lewis, the book’s illustrator. Working with Aled was kind of spectacular; he’s a phenomenal artist, and what’s more, he knew exactly what weirdness we were talking about, every single time we gave started talking weirdness at him.
The search for an illustrator was one of the early components of the book after we got our contract, but it still took a while to find the right person for the job. In the meantime, co-writer best friend Nick and I had been envisioning an illustrated guidebook akin to The Boy Scout Handbook since the original conception of the book. A lot of stuff in time travel needs illustration, and easily some of the funniest stuff in the book is in the graphics, not the prose.
