Play time -

"Imaginary Cover for a Henry Kuttner Novel"
manipulated digital drawing by Mick Mather
As I was resizing this old digital drawing some of the more abstract, sci-fi paperback covers of the 1950's and 1960's came to mind. In particular, I began thinking about Henry Kuttner novels (I've read more than a few) and thus attached this image to him. A quick search elicited few illustrations in this vein but it still feels right somehow.

Oh, you really should if possible. I rated him close to the top of that list of authors of the so called "Golden Age" of science fiction.

Don't know Kuttner either! But I like the yellow lightening up the less bright colours.

Kuttner was married to C. L. Moore - perhaps the better known sci-fi author. They often wrote together under pseudonyms, Lewis Padgett and Lawrence O'Donnell for the most part. Kuttner died young, at 42, but left a long legacy of stories and books.
