Chesley Awards Deadline Approaches

Wow -- the Association of Science Fiction & Fantasy Artists have posted a terrific gallery of 2008 sf/f art. They posted it for ASFA members to vote upon for the 2009 Chesley Awards nominating process. It’s merely a suggestions gallery and NOT the Chesley Awards final nominees’ list. Deadline for ASFA members to submit nominating ballots is Friday, May 30th. The final nominees will be announced by ASFA later this summer.

Good news for Yours Truly — four of my own works are included in the suggestions galleries. Again, these are NOT Chesley Award nominees, but merely images that ASFA selected for possible nomination consideration:

Best Cover Illustration / Paperback:
John Picacio -- FAST FORWARD 2
