Spectrum 14 sneak peak

Arnie Fenner sent me a tease of Spectrum 14, due out this fall. At 248 pages, this will be the biggest edition yet, and Arnie, who tends to be fairly low key, is stated that it just might be the best looking one. Here are a few of the front matter pages.

Shelley Wan’s winning Last Man Standing competition piece is on the contents page. (As well as in the exhibit section of the book, of course.)

SECOND: Syd Mead fitting receives the Grand Master award – one, because he’s been a big influence on anyone attempting to picture the future and, two, because this will be the first edition of Spectrum with a specific category for concept art.

Brom’s Call for Entries poster backing up Arnie’s “Year in Review”.

By the way, the Spectrum website “news” section has been active and interesting. Definitely worth checking out.

Sorry, Arkady, those were the only shots he sent. We'll just have to wait until fall. :-p

Merci beaucoup.

My editor at Knopf Books for Young Readers told me the jacket art for my first novel STAR-CROSSED (artists Griesbach and Martucci) is to be included in the next Spectrum! I hope that means SPECTRUM 14! I can't wait!
