Soar into danger, with the stunning artwork of Christopher Moore

A ship plunges boldly into the swirling eye of an event horizon, criss-crossed by a searing beam of purple light. What happens next? It's the sort of tantalizing image that leaves you dreaming — and desperate to read the book that the image adorns.

Chances are you've already drooled over Christopher Moore's absolutely stunning science-fiction book cover art — but you may not have realized that so many of your favorite paperback covers originated with a single U.K.-born artist. His covers have adorned books by Isaac Asimov, Larry Niven, Frederick Pohl, Anne McCaffrey, Clifford D. Simak, Kurt Vonnegut, J.G. Ballard, Arthur C. Clarke and Samuel R. Delany, among others.

Here are some of our favorite Moore images. You can see way more in his book, Journeyman: The Art of Chris Moore. And there are tons more at the link. [Christopher Moore Illustration]
