It's hard to forget this book, because every time I stop into a Borders or Barnes and Noble, it's there in the bargain books section, sometimes with a new cover. Originally published (I think) in 1997, it's a book that refuses to die.
And why should it? It's crammed with gorgeous cover paintings from all genres, with commentary by such folks as Jim Steranko, Forrest J. Ackerman, Sam Moskowitz, Darrell C. Richardson and James Van Hise (and many more).
My only complaint is, the book is only 182 pages long. I would have preferred more. Say, 1,820,000 or so. Geez, is that too much to ask?
