it was amazing

I was the cover illustrator for the first release hardcover and paperback of Tuf Voyaging (cover shown here). It was my break-in assignment from Jim Baen at TOR. And, as an avid science fiction reader for years, I couldn't believe my luck when I read the book in manuscript form. To this day it is one of my favorites. Haviland Tuf is one of the most distinctive characters in science fiction. As I read the stories, I kept thinking this would make a great film. I still think so today.

I only wish they had let me run with the cover design I first submitted. It had dinosaurs. Read the book and you'll understand why. Instead, they wanted a more iconographic design showing Haviland, his cats and the interstellar seed ship on which all the action takes place.
