Artists’ portraits of fantasy and science fiction authors on TOR.com

Artists portraits of fantasy and science fiction authors on TOR: Virgil Finlay, Donato Giancola, Michael J. Deas, Iain McCaig, Mark Summers, Gregory Manchess
Arnie Fenner, co-founder and editor of the Spectrum collections of fantastic art, has written an article for Tor.com titled Lovecraft, Asimov, GRRM, Heinlein & More: Painting SFF Writers in which he collects some portraits of fantasy and science fiction authors by a number of artists.

Covering authors in the genre as far as Mark Twain (think Connecticut Yankee in King Author’s Court) the portraits are in a variety of media and styles, but all by outstanding artists.

Incidentally, the Tor.com site has a terrific gallery of fantasy and science fiction illustrators (major time sink warning).
