    Jack Gaughan - "Moon of the Three Rings" Paperback Book Cover Original Art (Ace, 1966). Andre Norton's SF novel, Moon of the Three Rings, told the yarn of, "Vorlund, the Free Trader, who went to a planet called Yiktor at the time of the Moon of the Three Rings. The Three Rings meant power, and those few of Yiktor who possessed it could shadow a man's life or turn it into nothingness. Maelen, trainer of werewolf-like animals, willed Krip to leave his body to be found and carried to the Valley of the Forgotten by those pursuing him for their own evil." Classic sci-fi from the author of the "Witchworld" books! Jack Gaughan's Ace paperback cover, #H-33, is an acrylic on board painting which has an image area of 16" x 13.5"; aside from some minor surface soiling in the white areas, the art is in Very Good condition. From the collection of Richard and Wendy Pini. Richard says: "Jack Gaughan was one of the staples of science fiction/fantasy book illustration, bridging the realistic style of a Frazetta and the pure abstractions of a Richard Powers. His covers for the two Lancer Books editions of Michael Moorcock's Elric stories were favorites of Wendy's, and I looked up and down for any example of his work. Finally, I got lucky!"
