www.taletelllerclub.com Our featured sci-fi shorts for this week are listed below

Fevers and Physicians in Space

https://librivox.org/ recording of Fevers and Physicians in Space (Ed Reads Short Sci-fi, vol. II) by Various.
Read in English by Edmund Bloxam

I: ‘Pandemic’ by Jesse F. Bone
A deadly pandemic consumes the world (blah blah blah - you know the rest). If only THAT was the cure to the real one?

II: ‘2BR02B’ by Kurt Vonnegut
I wanna live forever...and have kids...but what about the consequences?

III: ‘The Beautiful People’ by Charles Beaumont
Why would you not want to be beautiful? Like every else.
Now, now, don't be difficult.

IV: ‘Operation Distress’ by Lester del Rey
One man alone in the depths of space...suddenly struck with illness...if he returns to Earth, he could infect the world!

V: ‘Doctor’ by Murray Leinster
In the complex logistics of interstellar travel, the only way to cordon of the deadly plague is to ghettoize entire planets and let everyone die. Problem solved.
But does a Zero-plague strategy really work?

VI: ‘John’s Other Practice’ by Winston K. Marks
Malpractice? Or will technology be allowed to innovate health care? Can Dr. Klinghammer convince the authorities that the corporation is not trying to scam them?

VII: ‘Bolden’s Pets’ by F. L. Wallace
I have a disease and all the planet's natives gave me was this lousy pet. But at least I have a cute pet now. Or do I?

VIII: ‘The Addicts’ by William Morrison
Another kind of disease. This time with a flawless and simple cure.
But what if he won't take it? What if he's fatalistic about the strange creatures outside in space?

IX: ‘The Man Who Made the World’ by Richard Matheson
"Who is this strange patient I must see, nurse? He seems a bit of a brat."

X: ‘Contagion’ by Katherine Maclean
When colonizing a new planet, please remember: look out for new contagions, pay attention to the fact that your body can't digest the food (genetic manipulation required!)
And beefcakes. Watch out for beefcakes.

XI: ‘Breeder Reaction’ by Winston K Marks
Finally, the medical scientists get hold of the new beauty product. The 'Mad Men' types try to cover up their sloppiness, and their bellies...

XII: ‘The Disembodied Man’ by Larry Maddock
A cure for death itself! It'll take some patience though. And a mysterious voice.

XIII: ‘Advanced Chemistry’ by Jack G. Huekels
No, it's actually a cure for death this time. For real. But accidents will happen...

XIV: ‘Bad Medicine’ by Robert Sheckley
A man intent on murder attempts a common therapy for psychosis. With disastrous results.

XV: ‘Homesick’ by Lyn Venable
Space, full of pathogens and allergens the human body can't cope with. Especially on...alien...planets.

XVI: ‘Heart' by Henry Slesar
"Money!" the big man cried. "How much money would it take to get me repaired?"
"But it's not a matter of money—"
"Don't give me that!" Monk put his jacket on with a violent motion.
The physician shrugged. "Money doesn't buy health."
"Doesn't it?" The patient gave an abrupt laugh.

XIX: ‘The Happy Unfortunate’ by Robert Silverberg
'Healthy little ape'—those were the words he used. He told my grandmother I'd get bigger and bigger, that no amount of surgery could make me small and handsome, that I was fit only for space and didn't belong in Yawk. So I left for space the next morning.

Gilded Elegance: The Allure of Gold Leaf in Fine Art by iServalan™

 Gilded Elegance: The Allure of Gold Leaf in Fine Art

gold leaf and oils by iServalan™
Introduction: In the world of fine art, where creativity knows no bounds, one medium has stood the test of time, adding a touch of opulence and sophistication to masterpieces: gold leaf. The luminous and reflective qualities of gold leaf have captivated artists for centuries, elevating artworks to new heights and creating an aura of timeless elegance.

In the realm of fine art, gold leaf remains a timeless and enchanting medium that transcends eras and genres. Its application, whether steeped in tradition or pushing the boundaries of contemporary expression, adds a layer of opulence and significance to artworks, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in the gilded elegance of artistic mastery.


The Rich History of Gold Leaf:

Gold leaf, comprised of thin sheets of real gold, has a storied history dating back to ancient civilizations. From Egyptian tombs to Byzantine religious icons, the use of gold leaf in art has been synonymous with prestige, spirituality, and a celebration of the divine. The tradition continues to thrive, transcending cultures and artistic movements.

Portraits, Graphite and Gold Leaf by iServalan™ 2022

Symbolism and Significance:
Beyond its visual appeal, gold leaf carries profound symbolism in art. Its inherent preciousness symbolizes wealth, power, and the divine. Artists often use gold leaf to emphasize the sacred or elevate the ordinary to the extraordinary. The application of gold leaf becomes a deliberate choice, infusing the artwork with layers of meaning and cultural resonance.

Techniques and Application: The application of gold leaf requires skill and precision. Artists meticulously adhere the delicate sheets to the canvas or surface using a special adhesive. Techniques such as water gilding and oil gilding provide different textures and finishes, allowing artists to achieve a range of effects from smooth and reflective to textured and aged.

Portrait of a Young Child with Dirty Face
Enhancing Texture and Depth: One of the magical qualities of gold leaf is its ability to enhance texture and depth in a composition. When applied over textured surfaces or intricate details, the gold leaf catches light in a way that traditional pigments cannot, creating a dynamic interplay between light and shadow. This adds a tactile dimension to the artwork that engages the viewer on a sensory level.

Contemporary Expressions: While traditionally associated with religious and historical art, gold leaf has found its place in contemporary art as well. Contemporary artists use gold leaf in innovative ways, blending it with modern techniques and subjects. The juxtaposition of the ancient medium with contemporary themes creates a dialogue between the past and present, bridging the gap between tradition and innovation.

The Allure of Luminosity: The reflective nature of gold leaf imparts a luminosity to artworks that is unparalleled. Whether used sparingly for highlights or covering an entire surface, the gilded effect draws the viewer's gaze, creating a sense of awe and wonder. The play of light on gold leaf transforms a static artwork into a dynamic, living entity.

Servalan's Gilded Vision: The Radiance of Gold Leaf in Portraits and Artworks

Introduction: In the realm of portraiture and fine art, the use of gold leaf has taken on a new dimension in the hands of the visionary artist Servalan. Her masterful incorporation of this ancient medium transcends tradition, infusing her portraits and artworks with a luminous quality that goes beyond the visual, creating a dialogue between the past and the contemporary.

Gilding Identity: Servalan's use of gold leaf in portraiture is not merely decorative; it becomes an integral part of the identity of her subjects. The gilded accents delicately trace the contours of faces, capturing the essence of the individuals she portrays. The symbolism of gold, with its connotations of wealth and significance, intertwines with the personal narratives of her subjects, creating a rich tapestry of identity.

Luminosity and Expression: One cannot help but be captivated by the luminosity Servalan achieves in her artworks. The reflective surface of gold leaf adds a dynamic quality to her portraits, catching the nuances of expression and emotion in a way that traditional pigments cannot. The play of light becomes an integral part of the narrative, shifting with the viewer's perspective and breathing life into the canvas.

Historical Echoes: Servalan's deliberate choice of gold leaf echoes the historical use of this medium in religious and regal portraiture. Yet, she reinterprets tradition, seamlessly blending the classical with the contemporary. The golden hues not only pay homage to art history but also serve as a commentary on the enduring nature of portraiture as a means of capturing the essence of an individual across time.

Texture and Dimension: The artist's meticulous technique in applying gold leaf creates texture and dimension that elevate her artworks to a tactile realm. Whether highlighting features with a subtle gilded touch or covering entire backgrounds in a cascade of gold, Servalan's use of the medium adds layers of complexity that invite viewers to engage on a sensory level, fostering a deeper connection with the art.

Symbolic Narratives: Each stroke of gold leaf in Servalan's portraits tells a story. The deliberate choice of where to apply gilding, whether it be the arch of an eyebrow or the curve of a hand, adds symbolic significance. The gold becomes a visual language, conveying messages about power, vulnerability, and the multifaceted nature of the human experience.

Contemporary Fusion: Servalan's innovative approach to incorporating gold leaf extends beyond traditional portraiture. In her broader body of work, she seamlessly fuses the ancient medium with contemporary themes and subjects. The juxtaposition of gilded elements against modern contexts creates a striking tension that invites viewers to question and reflect on the intersection of tradition and innovation.

Conclusion: Servalan's use of gold leaf in portraits and artworks is a testament to the enduring allure of this ancient medium. Through her skilled craftsmanship and thoughtful symbolism, she breathes new life into the tradition of portraiture, inviting viewers into a world where identity is gilded with radiance, and each artwork tells a story that transcends time.

Sailor by iServalan Vintage photography series


Portrait of a Sailor by iServalan™


Sailor art, also known as nautical or maritime art, encapsulates a rich and fascinating genre that has flourished throughout maritime history. This distinctive form of artistic expression often depicts scenes of seafaring life, ship architecture, and oceanic landscapes. Characterized by intricate ship portraits, naval battles, and maritime exploration, sailor art has been a means for sailors to document their experiences at sea and share the allure of maritime adventures with those on land. The artistry extends beyond traditional paintings to include ship models, scrimshaw on whalebone or ivory, and detailed navigational charts adorned with ornate illustrations. Sailors, often possessing a deep connection to the sea, infused their works with a sense of nostalgia, patriotism, and sometimes superstition, creating a unique visual language that mirrors the challenges and romance of life on the open water. Today, sailor art continues to captivate enthusiasts and art collectors, serving as a testament to the enduring allure of the sea and the maritime heritage that has shaped cultures around the globe.

"Through the Lens of Time: How to Spot a Genuine Vintage Photograph from the Late 20th Century"

In the world of vintage photography, enthusiasts and collectors seek not just images but tangible fragments of history frozen in time. Recognizing genuine vintage photographs from the late 20th century requires a keen eye for detail, an understanding of historical context, and an appreciation for the unique characteristics that distinguish authentic relics. Here's your guide to navigating the visual tapestry of the past.

1. Print Quality and Paper Type

Genuine vintage photographs often bear distinct characteristics related to print quality and paper type:

  • Gelatin Silver Prints: The late 20th century saw the prevalence of gelatin silver prints, characterized by a rich, silver-toned image. Look for the slightly glossy surface and a silver sheen when tilted in the light.

  • Fiber-Based Paper: Vintage prints are often on fiber-based paper, giving them a textured feel. Hold the photograph at an angle to catch the texture, a characteristic less common in modern resin-coated papers.

2. Sepia Tones and Color Palette

The color palette of a vintage photograph can offer clues to its authenticity:

  • Sepia Tones: Authentic vintage photos may exhibit sepia tones, a result of aging and the chemical processes of the time. This warm, brownish hue is a hallmark of vintage photography.

  • Fading and Patina: Genuine vintage prints may show signs of fading or a slight patina, adding to their authentic charm. This weathering occurs over time and contributes to the unique character of vintage photographs.

3. Printing Techniques and Marks

Understanding the printing techniques and identifying marks can reveal the authenticity of a vintage photograph:

  • Darkroom Techniques: Late 20th-century photographs often bear the marks of darkroom techniques, including dodging, burning, and other manual adjustments made during the printing process.

  • Watermarks and Stamps: Look for watermarks or stamps on the back of the photograph, indicating the paper's origin or the photographer's studio. These markings can provide valuable information about the photograph's provenance.

4. Vintage Mounting and Framing

The way a photograph is mounted or framed can also offer insights into its authenticity:

  • Vintage Matting: Original vintage photographs might be matted in a style indicative of the time. Check for matting materials and styles consistent with the late 20th century.

  • Framing Techniques: The framing techniques, including the type of glass and frame design, can be indicative of the era. Some vintage photographs might still retain their original frames, offering additional authenticity.

5. Subject Matter and Style

Examining the subject matter and artistic style can help authenticate a vintage photograph:

  • Period-Accurate Subjects: Authentic vintage photographs often capture subjects, settings, and styles that align with the aesthetics of the late 20th century. Pay attention to clothing, hairstyles, and surroundings.

  • Photographer's Signature Style: Recognize the signature style of renowned photographers from the era. Familiarize yourself with the works of photographers who were active during the late 20th century to identify common themes and techniques.

6. Historical Context

Understanding the historical context surrounding the photograph can be crucial:

  • Events and Cultural Significance: Consider the historical events or cultural significance associated with the photograph. Authentic vintage prints may carry an inherent connection to a specific time or moment.

  • Photographer's Biography: Investigate the biography of the photographer. Knowing their active years, preferred techniques, and notable works can provide valuable context for dating a vintage photograph.

In the quest to spot a genuine vintage photograph from the late 20th century, the journey is as important as the destination. Each photograph tells a story, not just through its subject matter but through the nuances of its creation and preservation. So, arm yourself with knowledge, embark on a visual exploration, and let the echoes of the past speak to you through the lens of authenticity.
