Bruce Sterling. Science Fiction Author.
Sterling, who was interested in Latham’s mutation art, visited him at IBM whilst attending a Science Fiction Conference in Winchester in 1990. Sterling arrived at IBM unexpectedly and asked for Latham at reception. Latham was called and they spent the rest of the afternoon talking. This meeting resulted in Latham creating a book cover for the hard back cover publication of Sterling’s Global Head which was first published in 1991. Global Head was a collection of short stories written by the author.
