Someone's at war with me?!

Stumbling through cyberspace I found this here.

The War Against the Rull: book cover image

The site is actually dedicated to the cover and artwork of one Richard Michael Gorman Powers (1921-1996), though this particular item comes under the list of those NOT by him (or of questionable attribution).

What a great name A E Van Gogt is/was.

Great cover art too. Love the crazy sci fi font!

I'd like to add, that what worries me about books like this is that I have no recollection of it at all, and yet I've almost certainly read it.

Too many years borrowing Yellow Gollancz SF from libraries without bothering to note author names!

At least you are part of a galactic conflict, not some humble thing kept at home.

Aw! Thanks alot for the heads up on this site, Ms Rullsenberg. I'm a big fan of this guy, and I really dig in particular the Atomic/Space Age/Cold War/zing! zang! zoom! beatnik /jazz artwork from the early-mid Fifties. This site has entertained me hugely.

Oddly enough I've never read it, though I read a few van Vogt's as a student. In fact i can trace my interest in SF to a friend who lent me an anthology with van Vogt's "The Pendulum" in it saying "You MUST read this". (It is a very good - and very short - story.)
