While there have been numerous books published over the past few decades on the subject of science fiction and fantasy books and movies, almost no attention has been paid to science fiction and fantasy artists. Although a number of "picture books" emerged in recent years, only a limited number have provided any significant information. This comprehensive biographical dictionary represents one of the first research efforts in the field of science fiction art. It is not an art book, but rather a book about artists. As one of the first comprehensive biographical dictionaries, it was intended to serve as a catalyst to stimulate further scholarship.
