Frank Comments: First we have The Star-Crowned Kings a Daw Books publication. I haven’t read it so don’t know what the lady-in-chain has to do with the story. But, I thought, she looks familiar, and I thought I knew where I’d seen her before: Up to the Sky in Ships, a NESFA Press collection of some of A. Bertram Chandler’s short stories.  Chandler and Freas were Guests of Honor at that year’s Worldcon, which was the occasion for the book. I guess it was thought that this would be offered to a more adult audience and so the model got to stand up for this painting, so we could all see that the lady-in-chain really is a blonde.
Star Crowned Kings published 1975
Up to the Sky in Ships published 1982

It’s dos-a-dos like an Ace Double and if you flip it over you see the cover for the other collection of shorts in the book, this one from Lee Hoffman.

Good Show Sir’s Art Direction: Self published? Well I mean we could try to make it look good or… we could just slap on a large transparent women’s head in the midst of a country sunrise. I wonder what though…

Saxy Stevenson’s Art Direction: It’s about an alien, a cute one, you know the kind of one you’d love to kiss, cuddle, stroke, bath etc. Bath… wait that’s a great idea, like with bubbles and maybe some caring hands around it and some big gremlin eyes. Perfect!
