This was an exciting career point for me as you can imagine. It was fortunate timing to meet the legend Sir Arthur C Clarke, just as the book was about to go to print. Sir Arthur kindly offered to contribute a foreword for the book, and had always liked a particular illustration I had done for his book short stories "Expedition to Earth"

Around the time of the book's publication, I was invited to hold an exhibition of my paintings at the Minehead Space Festival; an event to commemorate the life and work of Sir Arthur C Clarke. It was an honour and privilege to meet the man himself. We stayed in touch until he passed away in 2009

Nigel Suckling, the author of the book, has a fascinating website of his own at
