A neat Shadow cover by George Rozen.I have no idea what’s going on in this Robert Bonfils cover, but it does manage to be both interesting and suggestive.

Still too chaotic to blog

Okay, it’s not really a chaos issue. It’s that I’m getting a lot done on Alien Visitors and a lot of Leaf articles done, which leaves little time for blogging. But phrasing it as “chaos” justifies using these three covers from Michael Moorcock’s first Corum trilogy, pitting him against the Lords of Chaos:Covers by Bob Haberfield

The week continues crazy —

— so why not a crazy SF illustration as that’s all I have time for? H.W. McCauley gives us a really silly robot for hump day.#SFWApro. All rights to images remain with current holder.

Covers for Tuesday

Plans to get something more detailed in fell afoul of the power going out, so —

One by Robert Gibson Jones. Apparently they have white jungle goddesses in space too.One by Powers.

Earle Bergey provides the cover. Margaret St. Clair, Leigh Brackett and Fletcher Pratt is a great lineup.

One by the great Virgil Finlay.Frank R. Paul up next —And I’ll close with another Powers, clearly anticipating the summer weather of 2021.#SFWApro. All rights to images remain with current holders.

Ooops!

I was so sure that I’d scheduled a book review post for today, but obviously I didn’t. And now that I realize my error, I don’t have time to post, so here’s a cover by Joe Maneely to make up for it.And here’s a striking anti-segregation poster by Elton Clay Fax, a black artist and comics artist discussed in the book Invisible Men, which I’d meant to review today.#SFWApro.

Some covers for Tuesday

Powers art for Jack Vance’s The Palace of Love.An odd-looking uncredited cover for a Lovecraft collection. Somehow that weird shadow figure makes the book look almost comical.CC Beall does a cover for a mystery classic.I may have used this uncredited cover before, but I like the juxtaposition of fantasy and modern so here it is again.#SFWApro.

Some covers for Wednesday

Walter Popp does a good one for L. Sprague deCamp’s story of an immortal Neanderthal, “The Gnarly Man.”I’m not sure why, but I really like this Alex Schomburg cover.And a paperback cover by Norman Saunders. “She was evil [but] he couldn’t live without her” — we’ve all been there, right?And here’s one by Peter Jones I rather like (I’ve posted it before).#SFWApro.

Covers for a Tuesday

This has no good ending. Art by Dick Dillin.Another Dillin cover. I’m guessing the creature isn’t so bad and it all works out.A lively war-comics cover by Jerry GrandenettiAnd one of John Romita’s romance covers. Bonnie Taylor appeared in several Young Romance issues. If you’re curious, Jacqueline Nodell details this story here.And if you think that looks like heartbreak, how about this? Art is uncredited, probably by Romita. I hope Bonnie got a happy ending before her series wrapped up.#SFWApro. All rights to images remain with current holders.
