By Marty Mulrooney

Hardware: The Definitive SF Works of Chris Foss

Chris Foss is a British artist and illustrator whose groundbreaking artwork revolutionised science fiction book covers of the 1970s and 80s.

Featuring book covers made for such prolific science fiction writers as Isaac Asimov, E. E. ‘Doc’ Smith, Arthur C. Clarke, A. E. Van Vogt and Philip K. Dick, as well as design work for film directors such as Ridley Scott and Stanley Kubrick, Hardware: The Definitive SF Works of Chris Foss offers a comprehensive retrospective of Foss’s career to date.

By Marty Mulrooney

Cover idea 2008.pmd

The Listener is a graphic novel created by Canadian cartoonist, painter, graphic designer and guitar player David Lester. In the author’s own words, “The Listener exposes one of the world’s most tragic acts of spin doctoring while revealing a compelling tale of complacency, art, power, and murder. It is a startling little-known story that changed the course of history.”
