Sign of Chaos - art by Geoff Taylor


In this painting by Geoff Taylor a mountain range lies in the distance. Built on an estuary are tower like structures that are like futuristic castles, viewed through an archway. In this archway we can also see the waves lapping on the sand. Two figures stand at the top of a smoking beacon, a large torch structure at the top of a pyramid of steps. One figure in black holds a sword lengthways, the figure dressed in red looks over to the castles.



Synopsis for Original Title

Sign of Chaos. Merle Corey, son of the great Prince Corwin of Amber, has been pursued through shadow by unknown enemies and left trapped in an Alice in Wonderland world - a bar with the Mad Hatter serving and the Cheshire Cat grinning malevolently. In a dramatic escape from a monstrous Jabberwock, Merle embarks upon a fantastic adventure, leading him back to the Court of Amber and finally to a confrontation at the Keep of four Worlds, and here he learns the strange secrets of the Courts of Chaos and their role in his destiny.
