This perennially popular genre always attracts the most visionary artists, and this book showcases the crème de la crème of contemporary science fiction painters, illustrators and creators, whether established professionals, or brave new talents forging into the future. All aspects of classic science fiction themes are given a fresh perspective by artists examining popular sub-genres such as Sirens of Sci-Fi, Space Travelers and Spacecrafts, Aliens and Alien Worlds, Radical Robots, Incredible Cities, High-Tech War and Steampunk. Crammed full of exquisite art from around the world and fascinating insights from the artists and creators, Sci-Fi Art Now is perfect for fans of the science fiction genre, whether in movies, computer games, comics, book covers or illustrations.
I'm largely known as a comics and features writer who has worked in comics and magazine publishing in the UK for over 25 years. My British comics news and features web site downthetubes.net features news about British comics and a comics writing guide.
Magazines I've edited which you may have heard of include Doctor Who, Star Trek and STRIP: The Adventure Comic Magazine. Some you probably won't have include Planet of the Apes (based on Tim Burton's film, it lasted just five issues) and Meltdown.
I write comic strip and factual material but more recently have been settling back into fiction, even though my first solo book was SciFi Art Now, spotlighting both new and established fantasy illustrators.
You'll come across my name in various comic collections from Marvel UK, put out by Panini UK.
Writing and editing has always been a passion for me, and I hope that comes across in the projects I've worked on.
