About the photo on the cover: Rita C. Morgan, who can often be found at Crone’s Hollow, is modeling Sekhmet, the Egyptian goddess of war and fire. She has the head of a lioness and the body of a woman. For this photo shoot, a partial prosthetic mask was used to create the lioness face, followed by airbrush and beauty makeup techniques.
