Aaaaarrrgh! I should have known! There are no easy questions involving
Wolfe. 8->

Thanks very much to Tony Ellis for putting up the Bruce Pennington cover
paintings. I like them better than the Maitz versions. They strike me as
"old fashioned" somehow. (This is not necessarily a bad thing.) Perhaps it
is because they are scans of worn covers, but I would have guessed that the
books were published at least 25 years ago, just judging from the cover
art. They remind me slightly of Gray Morrow's work, although I am not sure
this would hold up after a side-by-side comparison.
