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.

Editorial Reviews

?Robert Weinberg's A Biographical Dictionary of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists is the first of this month's nonfiction selections. This book lists some 331 science fiction and fantasy artists in an alphabetical arrangement, with each sketch providing birth/death dates, nationality, birthplace, education, career, and family data. Also provided is specific art career data, such as places of study, influences, technique, mediums and materials used, stylistic developments, and publishing relationships. . . . This is . . . a unique reference work, useful for research in high school, public, academic, and special (art) libraries. Highly recommended, especially for high schools with Advanced Placement art history courses.??Wilson Library Bulletin
