Since it was Lafferty’s stories that long ago caused her to choose a career in illustration, it was always an especial honor when chosen to paint his book covers. Among the 200 or so covers are included Sinbad: The Thirteenth Voyage, Lafferty in Orbit, and recently the first three Feast of Laughter covers. These and more of her work, covers, and otherwise (and more Lafferty) can be found on her Facebook page, the Fantastic Art of Lissanne Lake <www.facebook.com/LissanneLakeart>.
The semi–anonymous artist who goes by Whythesun was born in Sardinia, Italy, and currently lives around Europe.
