From the dustjacket:
From the first, when Boris Vallejo's stunning illustrations began gracing the books of Edgar Rice Burroughs and the Doc Savage stories his amazing artistry found a wide and delighted audience.
In the six years since his work first received attention, the magnificent Vallejo imagination has created a vast gallery of superb illustration in every field: science fiction, fantasy, mystery and romance.
This collection showcases Boris Vallejo's astonishing versatility in beautiful reproductions of his most famous paintings for the Tarzan, Gor and Conan books, the fiction of Frederick Pohl, Larry Niven, Lin Carter, Poul Anderson, Alice Chetwynd Ley, and many more - and including some displayed here for the first time.
