Random Paperbacks:
by Philip Jose Farmer

(Beacon, 1960)

We’ve showcased the way-out artwork that often graced the covers of Philip Jose Farmer’s novels on a number of occasions in the past, but…. this one takes the cake.

I’m not sure Gerald McConnell’s illustration quite makes the grade as “psychedelic” sci-fi, but it must have proved fairly mind-expanding for some shelf-browsers in 1960, that’s for sure.

No further comment necessary from me on this occasion, I suspect.
