    Boris Vallejo - "Through the Reality Warp" Paperback Book Cover Painting Original Art (Ballantine Books, 1976). In Donald J. Pfiel's science fiction thriller, Through the Reality Warp, an astronaut is recruited to pilot a spaceship through a black hole in order to destroy an entire alien universe. In his introduction to Boris, Book Two, noted Science Fiction and Fantasy author Philip Jose Farmer wrote of Boris' talent, "The people who buy the books he illustrates see in his works what they knew in their deeper mind but couldn't visualize. He takes the words of writers and shows them in living color, holding up a mirror to those whose writings, dreams, he's portraying. In some cases, perhaps most, he makes a better image than that in the mind of the writer. It is no small matter to be a magician, but Vallejo is a Merlin." This fantasy sensation from early in Vallejo's career has an image area of 16" x 21". The art has been professionally framed, and is in Excellent condition.
