A painting or a comic book panel depicts a deadly space war. Phaser beams cross the frame, one of them striking a large hunk of rock in the middle. On the ground below are people and the strange elongated bodies of robots bristling with weapons. On a cliff high above is the silhouette of another of these robots. And in the sky are strange patterns. A clock? A blueprint? It's like the cover of the most stylish and action-packed Nebula Award-winning book of the 1960s.
