If you’ve been reading science fiction from British publishers over the last forty years, chances are you’ve read a book with a Chris Moore cover. From Alfred Bester’s 1975 novel Extro . . .
. . . Chris Moore illustrations have graced the covers of literally hundreds of books. Certainly readers of the SF Masterworks will have come across his covers on books by Arthur C Clarke, Philip K. Dick, Joe Haldeman, Ursula Le Guin, Sheri S Tepper and Gene Wolfe just to name a few.
