Beautiful F&SF cover art for "Umbrella Men"

Here's a first peek at the cover art for the next issue of Fantasy & Science Fiction with my story, "Umbrella Men" on the cover, and ZOMG what a beautiful painting by Mark Evans.

At the heart of "Umbrella Men" is a librarian from Brooklyn and his family, who are in possession of what may be a mystical umbrella that dates back to the dawn of history. Evans did an amazing job capturing the light and shadow, the mystery and magic. (Yes, I'll admit, I got him to sign a print for me.)
