Here’s a selection of the artwork included in the book:

Nice work, but is anyone’s mind “blown”?

Also, beware statements like “may be the first big, lasting contribution science fiction made to American literature”. Anytime someone goes out on that limb, they are overselling their wares. Kinda like titling half a dozen posts a week with some variation of “(This New Product) Will Blow Your Mind”.
