Artwork Description

Jack Vance is very popular in Germany. I read my first Jack Vance Novel in the fifties, and was fascinated from his very strange world. I was very pleased as Stefan Bauer, editor of SF & Fantasy from Bastei-Luebbe Publishing, asked me one day, if I liked to illustrate the novels of Jack Vance - it was a challenge for me to illustrate this strange worlds somewhere between Fantasy & SF. In the meantime I've made more than 80 illustrations, in which you can find many inspiration from pulp-artists of the past.

Emphyrio is one of my favorite JV stories. Your B&W prints go just right with the period of publication.

This is really a fantastic drawing. It reminds me some sci-fi magazine I used to read when I was young.

Art at its best.
