    Description

    Virgil Finlay - Amazing Stories April, 1963 Illustration Original Art (Ziff-Davis, 1963). The dean of SF pen and ink illustrations, Virgil Finlay, drew this intense double-portrait for James H. Schmitz's thriller, "The Beacon to Elsewhere." In this yarn, Lieutenant Frank Dowland, of the Solar Police Authority tried to recover a large quantity of a dangerous substance, YM-400, on Lion Mesa, but then pandemonium broke loose. It seems this gal used the YM-400 to open a hole into another space or time -- and something there didn't like it! The image area of the drawing measures 6.25" x 9.5", and the art is in Excellent condition.
