Amazing how new Lafferty stuff sits around online for a year before one notices it...
This is an illustration of Lafferty from Bruised Terrestrial ('the drawing-and-arting blog of Adam Moore / Laemeur'). At the blog site it is accompanied by some interesting comments from the illustrator, who is a Lafferty fan. The text in this 'saintly' portrait is from Lafferty's 1968 novel, Past Master. I think it's pretty dang cool.

My friend, Stephen Cefalo, made a wee video announcement of his upcoming exhibition of paintings, 'Dream, Float, Burn', and used a track from my 'post-punk' band Voice of the Mysterons. Why this is of interest to the Lafferty blog is that the refrain being sung here is the title of one of Lafferty's short stories: 'And Walk Now Gently Through the Fire' (1972). I think the imagery and sound go well together and perhaps even complement Lafferty's writing. And it's a small and very obscure instance of Lafferty being referenced in popular culture.
