The History of Science Fiction

Do you remember that kick-ass History of Science Fiction info graphic we reported on back in March?  Well, it’s finally available for purchase as a poster-size (39.5" x 29.5") photo lithographic print.  It’s been updated and some spelling errors have been corrected and you can get yours for $26.95 – that’s with 20% off if you order by June 15.  I’ve already put in my order and I can’t wait to get it.  I’ve got a spot picked out for it at the office.  Schweet.

I have to get this for my English classroom. I love how the gothic novel pretty much unifies and then becomes the inspiration for virtually all fantasy.

Love it! I am going to get one. Hazaa! Thanks for following up with the artist and getting him to update it. We should spread the word amongst the community so he gets as much exposure as possible. Hey! He should be nominated for an award. Who gives out the awards for not just sci-fi writing but artwork? Nebula? Hugo? One of them. Anyway, he’s a hands down winner.

You can tell this is really a labor of love just from the detail! I can’t imagine finishing this thing then having to go back and edit it for spelling and a few omissions, you’ll get it as is and like it! Hmm, I may try to work this in to an English class I’m teaching this summer (I’m going to work a bit of SF in with the "traditional" stuff) to help teach them about the evolution of genres. What’s the prevailing theory on just what the image is? I have two theories: 1) a squid/whale hybrid and 2) A cross section of Cthulhu’s heart (or head).

@Wintermute: I hope he gets lots of orders from WWEnd. I love to see these kinds of efforts rewarded. @Mattastrophic: I think it’s a Cthulhu squid! You should get with Rico on the classroom idea. Wish my teachers had been as creative.

My poster came in today and boy is it awesome! So much nicer in person. The colors are excellent and the printing is top-notch on very nice paper. Now I’ve got to get it mounted and framed. Well done, Mr. Shelley. Well done indeed.
