Maurizio Manzieri has sent me five selections of his artwork. They’re wonderful! From these I will choose the cover art for The Year’s Top Robot and AI Stories. It’s tough to choose just one.
Maurizio is an amazing artist and wonderful to work with. Among may honors, he’s been the recipient of Asimov’s SF Readers’ Awards for Best 2014 and 2015 Cover. He’s illustrated quite a few covers for lots of publishers in the science fiction field. The cover art for The Year’s Top Hard Science Fiction Stories 2 is Maurizio’s. And it just so happens that it’s been selected for inclusion in this year’s volume (#7) of Infected by Art!
