**** Saturday 2:30p: Artist GoH Interview
As acquiring editor for Golden Gryphon Press from 1999 through 2007, Marty Halpern acquired eleven book covers from artist John Picacio. Some of these covers were for books by such well-known authors as Jeffrey Ford, George Alec Effinger, and Lucius Shepard. This talk will be about the process of developing covers for books from the perspective of an artist working with an editor.
