higher powers

From Outer Space. Avon, 1963 (or 1957, depending on sources; the copyright data inside the book reference only the hardcover edition)
Illustration: Richard M. Powers (1921-1996)

The versatile Powers, whose sci-fi oeuvre is normally associated with his Modernist, abstract expressionist tendencies, had a much broader artistic range—the coarser, more expressionist drawing technique suggested here by the man’s face was more fully exploited by Powers later on his mid-1960s paperback covers for Ballantine’s Tarzan series.( Jesse Marinoff Reyes Design )
