Well, it’s that time of year again. The time when us literary sci-fi and fantasy nerds all get together and huddle around our smart phone screen to see who’s up for the Hugo Awards.
And while I didn’t make it onto the ballot myself this time around, I do have a small professional connection to someone who did. Larry Rostant, cover artist extraordinaire, has made it into the finalists and secured a Hugo nomination in the category of Best Professional Artist.
I couldn’t be happier for him. As you can see above, Larry did the covers for both THE ARK and TRIDENT’S FORGE, as well as excellent covers for several of my friends. His skills have served us all well, and I thank him for using his talents to breathe an extra dimension of life into our written worlds.
I think you can all guess who I’ll be voting for, in this category at least.
