Read full description of the books:
Bob Eggleton has won the Hugo Award for Best Artist several times, as well as the Chesley Award—and this collection of over 100 illustrations proves exactly why he is considered one of today’s most original fantasy and science fiction illustrators. All the paintings are imagined as part of a time capsule sent to aliens, and these fanciful, otherworldly visions include the covers for Daniel Hood’s The Scales of Justice and Larry Niven’s Rainbow Mars. Dynamic commentary by best-selling author Nigel Suckling.

Read information about the authorBob Eggleton is a science fiction, fantasy, and horror artist. Eggleton has been honored with the Hugo Award for Best Professional Artist eight times, first winning in 1994. He has also won the Chesley Award for Artistic Achievement in 1999 and was the guest of honor at Chicon 2000.
Eggleton's drawing and paintings cover a wide range of science fiction, fantasy, and horror topics, depicting space ships, alien worlds and inhabitants, dragons, vampires, and other fantasy creatures. His view on space ships were that they should look organic, and claimed that as a child, he was disappointed with the space shuttles and rockets NASA produced; they were nothing like fantasy artists of the twenties and thirties had promised. His fascination with dragons originated with his childhood interest of dinosaurs, which can be seen in the book Greetings From Earth. His paintings are commissioned and bought at sci-fi conventions, and used as book covers.
Eggleton received massive encouragement from his father, in the form of books, supplies, visits to museums of space and aeronautics and support during the career choices he made. Eggleton dropped out of his art college, because he felt it was not for him.
Eggleton is a fan of Godzilla and worked as a creative consultant on the 1998 film Godzilla and while in Japan appeared as an extra in one of the more recent films.
Asteroid 13562 was named Bobeggleton in his honor.
