More old sci fi covers; 10/4/2018


I can never get enough of them. Notice the magnetic anchors on the guys’ feet. Illustrator desperately trying to imagine what it would be like when there’s no down or up. Not doing a great job.

All centers of gravity are within ourselves and our solid footing in what is known for sure; and these are summed upĀ  in the phrases “I love you” and “I may get killed, here” and “Earth is that way, our home place, our Eden, our footing among the long moving orbits of things unknown and unknowable.” And “Ray Bradbury was one of the greatest of writers”.
