Acrylic colour sketch for ‘Earth Errant’ by Michael Kurland
Hal Salive Science Fiction and Fantasy Collection, University of Otago Library Special Collections.
This acrylic colour sketch by Jack Gaughan of Michael Kurland’s ‘Earth Errant’ is the only original illustration in Salive’s collection. On the back is a lot number and presumably Salive purchased it at auction sometime in the US. Kurland has written well over 40 titles, in both SF and detective fiction genres. This Gaughan image was done for the book, which was accepted then rejected by the publisher. Kurland’s story was eventually published by DAW as Tomorrow Knight (1976). Although the cover art for the DAW publication was done by Douglas Beekman, the interior art remained by Gaughan.
