Isaac Asimov: SF Cover Gallery

Isaac Asimov was the second science fiction author I read in quantity. I began reading SF stories almost exclusively from around the age of 11. Before that I'd read some of the global catastrophe novels in the Dr Palfrey series by John Creasey, some James Blish adaptations of the Star Trek TV series and some of Edgar Rice Burroughs John Carter of Mars novels. I picked up the first issue of Speed & Power when it came out in 1975 (it launched just before my 12th birthday) and became hooked on Arthur C. Clarke's short stories. Speed & Power also reprinted some of Asimov's robot stories and I became an obsessive reader of both authors.

Our local library had a good selection of Arthur C. Clarke's books and, of course, I had loads of his stories in Speed & Power, so I never bought and owned many of his paperbacks. Asimov was trickier to find in the library, so I ended up buying them at a time when Chris Foss was doing many of the covers, which kick-started my love of SF cover art. Thirty-five years later I've come full circle and the various cover galleries I've run over the past few years - and Sci-Fi Art: A Graphic History - have been the result.

I used to hate it when Panther were doing those weird 'Guess the Object' photo covers for SF authors like Asimov, and Eric Frank Russell. The funny thing is that they look incredibly nostalgic to me now as they were the editions I read most of those books in!

Steve said...

I was fortunate that the wheel had turned by the time I started reading Asimov and Panther were back to painted covers by the mighty Chris Foss. Peter Elson, Angus McKie and other Young Artists' artists were getting active and Eddie Jones, Bruce Pennington and others were busy for Sphere, New English Library and the like. And Science Fiction Monthly had just been launched. Heady days!

I'm ashamed of you Steve. You didn't put a link to that guy Holland's blog:
Foundation Trilogy

Phil Rushton said...

Heady days indeed! I can still remember how excited I was when I saw my first Chris Foss painting on the cover of Mayflower's 1971 edition of 'Rockets in Ursa Major' by Fred and Geoffrey Hoyle!

Thanks for upping these. It must have taken ages. Clearly a labour of love - and with impressive results.
