More About the Author

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice collection of sci-fi art 1 Jun 2011
By Parka HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Length: 1:24 Mins
Sci-Fi Art Now features a cool gallery of sci-fi art from various artists. There are seven chapters that covers robots, aliens, spaceships, cities, warfare, space girls and steampunk. The quality of art is great, and the variety is good, ranging from manga style to 3D modeling to paintings. The scenes and ideas are interesting and comes with a short description from the artists.

Nice book for fans of sci-fi art.

Do not mistake the other book Sci-Fi Art: A Graphic History as being part of the series. The other book covers more on the history of sci-fi art.

This book is published by two publishers, namely Harper Design and Ilex. The prices for the books are different. They have different cover art - Ilex has a flying gorilla and Harper Design has a yellow space alien girl. Both are 128-page hardcover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality book. Top quality artwork 2 Oct 2010
Format:Hardcover
First of all, I have to admit I am biased. I was lucky enough to be asked by John Freeman to contribute, and luckier still to get three of my images into the book.

As a artist and lifelong fan of science-fiction, I'd have bought this book whether or not I had any images in it. I have in fact bought a copy in addition to the contributor's copy.

For any fan of science-fiction this is a wonderful book. I was amazed by both the high quality of the book itself, as well as by the high quality of the artwork contained in it. The layout of the book maximises the size of the artwork - this is not a book containing tiny thumbnails.

Artists (traditional or digital) with an interest in science-fiction can get even more out of it - the book is a great source of inspiration. Each piece as accompanied by text which gives an insight into the inspiration behind each or sometimes info describing the process. It's also given me a VERY long list of artist names and their websites that I'll need to check out.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good and broad selection 19 Sep 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book has a broad, decent selection of sci-fi art. There are numerous different styles, and the artists get a paragraph or two in which to comment, provide background or insight into their methods.

I can't say I liked all the art. Some styles just didn't do anything for me. But if that wasn't the case, the book wouldn't have done its job properly.

It's well printed, bound and presented, and split into different sections for robots, space travel, war, etc. - that works very well to help bring some sense of order to often disparate styles.

A decent book with some superb art in it. Well worth buying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 2 Sep 2011
By Pacucho - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am more than happy with the quality of this book. The pictures are extremely detailed and the quality is superb. There is a great collection of varying artists with the chapters broken down between different subject matter you might find in Sci-Fi art. The collection of actual art though could have been somewhat better. Meaning there are some pieces featured, that seem rather plain. However, with this said I know everyone has their own ideas and opinions. Overall great book.

The works of several artists are presented, on sci fi subjects, from aliens to spaceships to robots to war. There are several different genres, and most images are very good. This works for me.

I love these kinds of books because it lets me see a sample of different artists' styles. And each work of art creates new ideas for me to try.
