    Blimey. Monster cloud cat. I know the lady is the main subject, but the cat-fog thing from the winged planet steals the show.

    I don’t think your fur coat is dead yet, lady!

    Surely the first recorded appearance of a Vulcan. Actually, quite a decent cover. The back cover could go further: they used “amazing” and “astounding” but they missed “thrilling wonder”.

    Ironically, most SF book cover designs ARE “a shot in the dark.”
