  3. Wow, you got some good old ones here (lol, old ones, he he). But my favorite are the Michael Whelan covers of the 1970’s – 80’s from Del Rey books.

      Thank you! It’s great to see how stories are interpreted differently through art, particularly from country to country! Thank you for commenting 🙂
