So, I'm into science-fiction, and I recently have invested into to SF-themed paintings. Those are from a French artist named Manchu (real name Philippe Bouchet), who was the main illustrator for the SF collection of "Le Livre de Poche", a large mass-market paperback publisher in France. Here they are. The first one is for the book "Sundiver" by David Brin, which is the first book of his Uplift series. The second was the cover for "Citizen of the Galaxy" by Robert Heinlein. Both of those are most excellent books.

Manchu is still very much active and producing great SF art. Look him up on FB and IG if you're interested.

Congratulations. Great acquisitions. Have you ever read Neal Asher or Stephen Reynolds?

I figured you were into SciFi the first time I saw your profile pic. Stranger in a Strange Land is still one of my favorite books. I even went to see the original manuscript at the University of California Santa Cruz. Cool destinatin for any who wishes to grok.

Can't say I ever thought I'd see UCSC mentioned on here. I'll have to check it out if I ever get back to campus.

I tried to read Gridlinked, but I kept losing the thread of the story... I haven't read any Reynolds (neither Stephen nor Alastair...)

I had a girlfriend attend there, while i was attending Humboldt State University, about 7 hours north of Santa Cruz. What a beautiful campus, both UCSC and HSU, redwoods everywhere and ocean views.

Speaking of Science Fiction, anybody read the three body problem trilogy. Wild stuff. honestly I have to reread it, last time was during a drinking while reading phase...
