The Art of TOM ROBERTS (Part 1)


Here's one of eight covers (that I know of) that Tom did for Crippen & Landru. This book was published in 2006.


This painting was used for three different Battered Silicon Dispatch Box books, all published in 2011: Victorian Holmes by Michael Duke, Introducing Sherlock Holmes by William Hyder and Thinking Outside the Tin-Dispatch Box by William R. Cochran.


And here's one from Tom's own Black Dog Books, published in 2010. More great covers next Sunday!

Softened in tone and subtle.

Very nice

These are great, but my favorite has to be the cover he painted for William Campbell Gault's Marksman and Other Stories.

There's almost no way any fan of hardboiled detective fiction can look at it without smiling.

Hope you have that one coming up.

I do, John. And due to your special request, it will be next Sunday.

For the Mundy cover, I posed as the doctor in the foreground and the German ship captain was posed for by my father.

Great tribute to your father, Tom.
