I scanned some R. A. Lafferty paperbacks for Writers No One Reads. The cover art for Nine Hundred Grandmothers is by Leo & Diane Dillon.
Sublime cover art for R. A Lafferty
All things Sci-Fi with a special nod towards cover-art.
Cover art for Walter Jon William’s Voice of the Whirlwind by Luis Royo.
Voice of the Whirlwind is a loose sequel to the massive Hardwired set an unspecified time into the future. Humanity has colonised and exploited the Solar System, and made forays out into the galaxy. They find they are not alone.
A great read, and one of my all-time favourites.
Cover art for Vernor Vinge’s A Fire Upon The Deep by Boris Vallejo.
Pack-minded alien race amongst a galaxy of millions where humans are but a tiny, insignificant part, awoken old gods, angry old gods, pre-tech, medieval tech, high tech, ultra-tech, love, laughs, death, despair, this one has it all!
Delivered in Vinge’s complex, at times chaotic style, its an exciting story with very interesting sub-text and philosophies.
Brin fans should love it, as I did.
My favorite character from Wizards, Peace the robot. I like him because a) he’s a robot, and b) he’s a bad guy turned good, which is like the best trope ever. <3
Oh, and also he’s adorable.
holy fuckin shit i love peace
oh god I remember this movie
I watched it when I was five and still remember how disturbing it was in parts. :I
(my aunt and uncle obviously didn’t know what they let me watch or didn’t care, looking the movie up again)
Great film. I used to hire it again and again and again on VHS.
