The Dark Night of the Soul. The Nightmares Awaken. Michael Swanwick is the Hugo-bedizened science-fiction writer who single-handedly has reclaimed the short-short story from the dustbin of history, with Puck Aleshire's Abecedary , Writing in My Sleep , Picasso Deconstructed , and, of course, the Periodic Table of Science Fiction, , now playing on SciFiction.
Cigar-box Faust and Other Miniatures , a collection of much though far from all of his short-short output is forthcoming from Tachyon Publications in winter of Francisco Goya , hardly a new light on the artistic horizon, is well known at age for his paintings, and for his fantastical and satiric etchings, of which Los Caprichos , the sequence of eighty etchings featured here, may be the most famous.

Goya worked on the series from around and many drawings for the prints survive. The inscription on the preparatory drawing for this print, now in the Prado Museum in Madrid, indicates that it was originally intended as the title page to the series. In the published edition, this print became plate 43, the number we can see in the top right corner.
Nevertheless, it has come to symbolise the overall meaning of the series, what happens when reason is absent. Various animals including bats and owls fly above the sleeping artist, and at the lower right a lynx watches vigilantly alerting us to the rise of monstrous forces that we are able to control when sleep descends. Not on view.
