I would strongly lean towards the cover being by Valigursky.

My admittedly brief check had Barton listed as the artist for the flip side, Beyond Earth's Gate -- with Daybreak 2250 as unknown artist. (shrug)

 

My check, alas, was too brief also. Clicking on Baron's name in the SFDB database revealed he was credited for "Beyond Earths Gates" as Pat mentioned. Given the long list of art credited to Valigursky it's very possible that the 2250 A.D. cover art was done by him, though uncredited.

So an Epsom scanner won't work unless the ink cartridges are filled?!? An HP is now on the way,so I can put up some more sci-fi. I don't want to clutter this thread with any more romance items, but if anyone happens to have any interest in them (esp foreign and esp Heade) and would like some scans, shoot me a pm.

In case anyone happens to be in the area. I myself have never been as it's on the other side of the country, but it is about the only one there is just for paperbacks.

I'm stuck in the middle of "fly over land" so I'm out. Nice to hear there are still PB conventions though.

I attended the show in 2010, when location was Mission Hills, which is northwest of the current location. The vendors had a great selection of vintage paperbacks.

 

Gary Lovisi of Gryphon Books used to run the New York Collectible Paperback show on the same weekend as NYCC. Sadly, his extensive rare paperback collection, which was stored in his basement in Brooklyn, was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy in 2012. The last New York show was 2013.

Thanks for the heads up. Looks like it will be a great show. I remember attending one many years ago and seeing some good stuff.

Unbelievable prices. I was watching them all but could only admire them digitally as the prices went up up and away.

I got shut out early, the Mystery Adventures are some of the best covers in the genre.

:cloud9: Delightfully understated cover, given the hints on the back of the book.

Poul Andersons first novel (1953).

Jack Williamson was first published in the December 1928 edition of Amazing with his story "The Metal Men". He continued to write into his 90's, and his last published work "The Stonehenge Gate" came out in 2005.
