Back in 1967, John W. Campbell of Analog, published Weyr Search which went on to become the first part of Dragonflight.
He chose artist John Schoenherr to do both the cover and interior illustrations. He also did the cover for the first part of Dragonrider and all the interior illustrations for both parts.
I was thrilled when John’s son, Ian, contacted me to ask if he could post Mum’s letter up on John’s memorial website.
You can see it and some of the magnificent illustrations here.
