The greatest science fiction art doesn't just light up your retinas with wonder and strangeness — it also makes you think, just like great science fiction writing. A new book, SciFi Art Now, contains mind-blowing futuristic and strange art.

SciFi Art Now, edited by John Freeman with a foreword by legendary artist Chris Foss, is out now and available on Amazon.com. The list of contributors is also impressive, including John Picacio, Bob Eggleton, and many others. Freeman's been posting art by many of the artists in the book over at his blog, and here are some of our favorites. Tons more at the link. [SciFi Art Now]
