I know all of you are scifi/fantasy geeks (or else why are you here, really), but not all of you are art geeks as well, so you may not have heard of Spectrum, the annual competition for contemporary scifi/fantasy/horror art…but to those of us you might classify as “geek artists”, inclusion in the Spectrum annual is a big deal. So I am thrilled to announce that 3 of our books made the annual:
Black Ships by Jo Graham (painting by John Jude Palencar)
Tempest Rising by Nicole Peeler (digital illustration by Sharon Tancredi)
The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N. K. Jemisin (digital illustration by Cliff Nielsen)
Congrats to our fantastic artists! And when the annual is released for sale I’ll post the cover and you can all check it out. And if you’re not familiar with Spectrum, you can read about it here. And here’s the list of included artists for Spectrum 17.
Here’s the winning covers:
