From the Back Cover:

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
