We have winners! Here is your chosen favorite Sci Fi cover for our May cover art contest – Haydyn Of Mars by Al Sarrantonio. The cover art is by Matt Stawicki. Although we picked covers for the competition by what made us smile, it was educational to learn more about the world of science fiction artists and their fans. Very interesting!
The second place winner was the vintage copy of The Monster Men by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The publisher, Ace, actually points out their choice of high quality artists for their reprints of Burroughs then out-of-print treasures. The cover artist for this swamp man masterpiece from 1960 was Frank Frazetta. Frazetta just died in 2010, and was a famous comic book artist as well as fantasy illustrator. He has been inducted into at least two related artist Halls of Fame. (Maybe I should up the price on this one!) Who knew.
The winners of the gift certificate drawing were Howard Wu (proving that daily entries really do improve your odds) and Marco Sharpe. Congratulations!
