Cool Poster

Any old topic will do, I suppose.

I found Dune (the movie too). Nice graphic. I think there's a program at one of our sites that does printing. I think I'll pay to have this one printed out for the baby's room. :D

Edit: Max Headroom's in there too! Awesome!

Nice... That's rather cool. :)=

(And that quote at the bottom sums up what I've been trying to say for years... just much better, more neatly and with half the wordcount :P)

"Science fiction deals with improbable possibilities, fantasy with plausible impossibilities." --Miriam Allen deFord
And that, children, is how the little bunny rabbit got his fluffy white tail.

As a minimum, we must demand from SF that it be wiser than the world it speaks to.

Interview with the artist:

HERE

Also, here is something another user of the SFRA listserv published earlier today. Apparently someone tracked him down to ask about buying a poster copy, and the artist relpied:

From: Ward Shelley <wardmshelley@gmail.com>
Date: March 14, 2011 11:29:40 AM EDT
To: Ward Shelley <mail@wardshelley.com>
Subject: History of Science Fiction Print

Thank you very much for your interest in the History of Science  
Fiction drawing. Because the image leaked out onto the web ahead of  
plans, we have been caught unprepared, but we do intend to offer a  
poster for sale very soon.  The specifics, size and price, are not  
yet clear, as we are waiting for responses form publishers.

Meanwhile, we will save your contact information and get back to  
you as soon as we have any news, hopefully later this week.

Thanks again for your inquiry.

Yours,

Ward Shelley
