Besides the amazing selection of essays in The Postnational Fantasy: Essays on Postcolonialism, Cosmopolitics and Science Fiction, the other editors and I were very happy with the fantastic cover art by Bertrand Benoit that the editor at our publisher McFarland selected for our book. Masood Raja, Swaralipi Nandi, and I had no input in the selection of the cover art, so it was a very happy surprise that McFarland chose such a wonderfully imaginative piece of art.
Mr. Benoit produces amazing photo-realistic cgi artwork, which you can read about his more recent creations on his official website and blog here.
I searched online for the image that graces our book’s cover, because I thought that I had seen the picture before. However, I thought it was slightly different.
I would be very lucky to have Mr. Benoit’s work grace the covers of my future books!
