Working name of US illustrator Dwight Graydon Morrow (1934-). Like a number of sf artists, GM began in COMICS, working with Atlas, Warren and other companies, although he did some sf covers for If and Gal in 1959 and through the 1960s produced covers and black-and-white interiors for these two - carrying over much of his lively (if sometimes crude) comics style and often using a distinctive "pen and wash" - as well as for AMZ, FSF and Fantastic. During the mid-1960s he began painting book covers also,especially for Avon Books, BALLANTINE BOOKS and ACE BOOKS, doing over 100 PERRY RHODAN covers for the latter. His comics work has never completelystopped: he contributed to HEAVY METAL and in the 1980s took over illustration of the FLASH GORDON comic strip. The Illustrated Roger Zelazny (1978) by ZELAZNY and GM gives a good idea of his style. He has 3times been nominated for a HUGO.
