Dominic Harman

n221684I’ve had the pleasure and privilege of knowing Dominic Harman, the artist, for more than twenty years. Back when I was selling stories to the Interzone, Dominic was commissioned to do the covers for the magazine, one or two of which illustrated stories of mine. Years later he did the cover for my novel, Helix – a fantastic burning spaceship with the helix in the background. I credit the fine cover with being instrumental in the book’s doing so well – fifty thousand copies sold to date, and counting. A couple of years later Dominic did the cover for the reissue of Engineman – another brilliant depiction of a spaceship. And then came what I regard as the finest cover he’s done for my work, that of The Serene Invasion: a great alien starship hovering over an arid African landscape.

SERENEINVASION (2)Dominic’s range has evolved over the years, since I started working with him, and his popularity has increased. His fine covers grace the work of many a best-seller, and I’m fortunate indeed that he’s still able and willing to illustrate my books. I think you’ll agree that his artwork for Jani and the Greater Game is excellent.

Anyway, I thought I’d write a short piece on Dominic’s work as it’s his fortieth birthday today: here’s to another forty and many more fine covers…
