Stephen E. Fabian's Women and Wonders

Stephen E. Fabian's Women and Wonders
Charles F. Miller, 1995

The companion volume to Stephen E. Fabian's 'Ladies and Legends', 'Stephen E. Fabian's Women and Wonders' offers 134 pages of reproductions of black-and-white and graytone illustrations done by Stephen E. Fabian. Most of the reproduced illustrations were done in the 70s and 80s for sci-fi and fantasy books issued by small press publishers.

As with 'Ladies and Legends', 'Women and Wonders' is a sturdy, 8 1/2 x 11 inch trade paperback printed on quality glossy paper stock. If you are a fan of Fabian's art, then obtaining a used copy for an affordable price is certainly feasible. And even if you are not a fan of Fabian's art, seeing the illustrations compiled in this volume likely will send you inquiring about those Old School sci-fi and fantasy titles for which they are provided.........

I've always been struck how similar Fabian's and Kenneth Smith's styles are.
