"Any science fiction reader would enjoy receiving this as a gift." (Science Fiction Chronicle
From the Back Cover
The extraterrestrials are here. One man has seen them.
In his classic guide, Wayne Douglas Barlow's brilliant portraits bring to life 50 aliens from science fiction literature: Larry Niven's Thrint and his Puppeteer, Arthur C. Clarke's Overlord, Frank Herbert's Steersman, Robert Silverberg's Sulidor and more. Humanoids, insectoids, reptillians-even protoplasmic, gaseous and crystalline life forms-are all faithfully and naturalistically depicted so that you can now visualize what could only before be imagined.
Plus a special section taken directly from the artist's personal sketchbook, featuring renderings, notes and locomotive studies.
