New spaceship art from Chris Foss on awesome space opera anthology!

GLORIOUS new candy-colored spaceship art from Chris Foss for Cosmic Powers: A Saga Anthology of Far-Away Galaxies, an upcoming space opera anthology by editor John Joseph Adams!

Cover copy:
A collection of original, epic science fiction stories by some of today’s best writers—for fans who want a little less science and a lot more action—and edited by two-time Hugo Award winner John Joseph Adams. Inspired by movies like The Guardians of the Galaxy and Star Wars, this anthology features brand-new stories from some of science fiction’s best authors including Dan Abnett, Jack Campbell, Linda Nagata, Seanan McGuire, Alan Dean Foster, Charlie Jane Anders, Kameron Hurley, and many others
Aside from the storied career that Foss had forged in space opera art over the decades, it makes sense that he would be tapped for this project in particular since his art inspired Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn during the concept phase for that film. With GG being a touchstone for the anthology, Foss is an easy sell.

If you're looking for more Foss art, his art book Hardware: The Definitive SF Works of Chris Foss is full of awesome spaceship art and a worthy companion.

Okay, I've vamped long enough--time to take in the view. Click to enlarge this gorgeous artwork!
