Overview

Barlowe's Guide to Extraterrestrials: Great Aliens from Science Fiction Literature by Wayne Douglas Barlowe, Ian Summers, Beth Meacham


The extraterrestrials are here. One man has seen them.

In his classic guide, Wayne Douglas Barlow's brilliant portraits bring to life 50 aliens from science fiction literature: Larry Niven's Thrint and his Puppeteer, Arthur C. Clarke's Overlord, Frank Herbert's Steersman, Robert Silverberg's Sulidor and more. Humanoids, insectoids, reptillians-even protoplasmic, gaseous and crystalline life forms-are all faithfully and naturalistically depicted so that you can now visualize what could only before be imagined.

Plus a special section taken directly from the artist's personal sketchbook, featuring renderings, notes and locomotive studies.

"Barlowe awes me. It's a breathtaking job of extending the author's vision . . ."-from the foreword by Robert Silverberg

"The illustrated field guide to extraterrestrials that every lover of science fiction must have."-The Brothers Hildebrandt

"Any science fiction reader would enjoy receiving this as a gift.-Science Fiction Chronicle

"Remarkable . . . The artist's imagination proves fully equal to the reader's own mental picture of these varied denizens."-ALA Booklist

A Hugo Award Nominee
