The world is wide awake — are you?

Here's the trailer for my next book with Helen Frost, Wake Up!

From a starred review in KIRKUS:
Lieder again demonstrates that he is not only a master of catching light where it falls,
but capturing intimate moments only the most patient of observers would notice.
His latest jaw-dropping images reveal with preternatural acumen details subtle
as the shadow of a praying mantis on a peony petal, feathers lining a tree swallow's nest,
and the tiniest of "newly hatched" cellar spiders dancing on a blade of grass, as Frost notes
"New life is everywhere — / open your eyes."

I wrote a short essay for the Spring issue of Faerie Magazine
No other living creature captures the magic of faeries like fireflies.
A beautiful magazine, pick up a copy and let me know what you think.

My wildlife filmmaking will appear in the PBS NOVA documentary "Creatures of Light",
produced by National Geographic Television,
on February 3, 2016 at 9 pm on PBS.
"On a summer’s night, there’s nothing more magic than watching
the soft glow of fireflies switching on and off. Few other life forms
on land can light up the night, but in the dark depths of the oceans,
it’s a different story..."

Our first review, a starred review from KIRKUS REVIEW for AMONG A THOUSAND FIREFLIES!
"In Frost and Lieder’s third exploration of tiny creatures taken for
granted in the natural world, they top themselves, lyrically centering
on a firefly’s search for a mate.
Again, Frost’s spare poem weds seamlessly with Lieder’s transfixing photography..."

On my way to the World Fantasy Convention 2015 in New York through next week.
I'm a special guest, curating an exhibition of artist Richard Powers paintings, along with panels, special displays and online features.
Powers was a giant of 20th century illustration, changing the way books were designed and presented.
Below is the cover of a small book I edited and designed just for the conference.
