 i think the cover art on this mmpb is by wayne barlowe: of the fourteen individual novels published by avon books in this reissue programme - i.e. excluding the larger format ''cities in flight'' omnibus edition p/b - two bear cover art by rowena morrill, who did not paint in this style, and eleven are definitely by wayne barlowe, bearing one form or another of his signature (some are also credited to him); and it is definitely in one of the styles he commonly employed.

but this is not a firm attribution: i neither possess° nor have seen documentary proof of this.

° - sfaiaa; i cannot currently reach most of my books to check whether or no it is reproduced in, or listed in, and authoritatively attributed to him in any of these, including one dedicated to his work

 I suspect this is a Barlowe cover; he created the artwork for a number of James Blish titles in this early 1980s series from Avon. The cover graphic here perhaps is a detail of a larger work.

 cover art seen attributed to wayne barlowe; stylistically convincing, but no firm reason provided.
