As I used up my review material yesterday, here’s a cover-art post. Gervasio Gallardo was one of the talented artists who worked on the Ballantine Adult Fantasy line of paperbacks. I love his work, for example the cover for George MacDonald’s Lilith.
Or the spectacular sinking-of-Atlantis cover of Poseidonis.
Or bringing the pretty for William Morris’ Water of the Wondrous Isles.
As Clark Ashton Smith’s Xiccarph is a more alien setting than Poseidonis, a somewhat weirder, more alien cover.
