Comments

Original preliminary cover painting for the Ace paperback edition of Fritz Leiber's Hugo Award-winning novel 'The Big Time,' painted by legendary science fiction illustrator Ed Emshwiller. The painting varies slightly from the finished image, but conceptually, Emshwiller carried the idea through. Any original artwork associated with Hugo Award-winning novels is highly sought after, and seldom appears on the market. Offered together with an unread copy of the Ace paperback edition.
