Fast Forward 2: The Final Cover

Here it is, the final cover art for Fast Forward 2:

This is from illustrator John Picacio, and is quite a special cover for both of us, as it arose out of discussions we had on the state - and purpose - of science fiction, including science fiction's responsibility to engage the world around it. We also displayed the penultimate version of this cover (never shown online) to the attendees of the Pyr Presentation Panel at ApolloCon, and their feedback positively informed this final iteration of the image.

Moreover, John talks about - and displays - some of his inspirations on his blog On the Front. Well worth checking out.

Happy 4th!
