More classic pulp illustrations! Last time it was Brown’s illustrations to H.P. Lovecraft’s “The Shadow Out of Time,” in which I made passing reference to Leinster’s “Proxima Centuari.” Well, here are the illustrations to that story as well.
The cover is by Brown, and the illustrations are by Elliott Dold. This story appeared in the March, 1935 issue of Astounding Science Fiction. As always, these scans were made from my own collection.
