Rock Fantasia at the Nebula Awards

“Rock Fantasia” is a series of digital illustrations by Fabulist art director Adam Myers, inspired by rock ‘n’ roll lyrics written by science fiction and fantasy authors. They were printed in a limited-edition of glossy 6″x9″ color postcards, which were included in the Nebula Awards Weekend conventioneer book bags, and are presented online here for the first time. Thanks to Michael Moorcock and John Shirley for authorizing the use of the lyrics, and Rina Weisman of SF in SF for her kind introductions and inclusion of these works.
