A shout out from us to this last artist, Annie Stegg Gerard: her superlative dragons and fantasy women, of which there are several here, were our runner-up choices for the cover of our December 2019 catalog. She is new to us, but her work is superlative. That can be said for so much to be found in this new and massive selection of the finest art of the year.
In Memoriam feature on Harlan Ellison.
