Kelly Freas was responsible for selling SO-MANY sci-fi books with his intriguing covers. I bought many just for his art and then stayed and read the books as well. He brought his own brand of sensuousity to the genre (I know that's not really a word, but I felt compelled to use it in honor of Freas' uniquisity).

I really like Freas. I don't know what you'd call the certain quality that his art has. It's luminous,and luxuriant and drenched with feeling. Sensuosity works fine for me.
