Jim Burns has been a professional SF artist since 1972. He has won the Hugo three times and BSFA awards 12 times. His work is instantly recognisable and adorns many SF book covers including those of fellow GoH John Meaney and Special Guest Terry Pratchett. He produced the famous Spaceport Glasgow picture for Interaction. Although a regular fixture at Eastercons, he has never been GoH… until now!

Jim has very kindly given us permission to showcase some of his artwork on our site. See them here.
