Abstract

Alexei Panshin’s Rite of Passage (1968) won the 1969 Nebula Award for SF. The action in this novel focuses on the teenage space-traveller, Mia Havero, remembering her ‘rite of passage’ – a month spent surviving on a colony planet. Eddie Jones (1935-99), a self-taught English artist, who is thought to have ‘defined the look’ of 1970s SF art, painted the spaceship for the 1973 UK Sphere publication.
