Amy Comments: Letters invoking Art Nouveau is an interesting choice for a book where a modern man travels back to ancient Rome.  Speaking of which, those are Roman sandals he is wearing.  I just wanted to point that out because you might think he has his feet jammed into slimy cornucopias.  Also, he is -traveling- -back- -in- -time-, people, not being served for dinner.  Note the collaged photograph of an ancient city, how it is juxtaposed against the crudely watercolored landscapes and forms in the foreground, making us question, which is the -real- world?

Many thanks to Amy!

LOOK it's a giant space brain! And he's got balls!Click for full image

Terry’s Art Direction: You see, nothing says ‘saving the universe from a 30,000 year descent into barbarism’ like a floating dead brain and two eyeballs. Oh, and be sure to lace it with lightning, and oh yeah it is a space story so put stars and stuff behind it.
Published 1983 (maybe)

Still not exactly sure who the publisher is.
Many thanks To Terry!

Eron Comments: In this cover, we get a fantastic 70′s disco door that leads to ancient Rome and connected by the most realistic rendering of… uh… electricity? … we have a centurion, a queen, a werewolf and, wait for it, a dude in a sombrero.

GAHHHAAAAA!Click for full image

We’ll have a dragon sweeping into a castle wall, a ninja on its back. And we’ll have the dragon actually killing someone with it’s, ummmm, magic breath. That’s right, just magic. Possibly electricity. I don’t know what dragons actually breathed, I haven’t got to that part in my dragonology night course yet.

Gahhh! I should have never licked that battery!Click for full image

Well magic is purple. Fact! So we are sorted for that but we need a way of getting magic’s amazing power across to people. I know, electricity… and some guy in obvious pain as he weaves his supernatural element. We all know that when you meddle with the supernatural all you get is that burning sensation of being electrocuted.

Thanks to CSA!
