Bookcover Spotlight #4
Star Born by Andre Norton is an older science fiction novel, with a very nice cover by Dean Ellis. Something about the rocket, at night, with tiny people illuminated in the various openings, a crane loading or unloading something, the rugged otherwordly landscape- even a moon off to the left hand side- just very evocative. This pretty much sums up old school science fiction for me, the golden age of science fiction when anything seemed possible, and we dreamed that we might someday make it to other worlds.
I love staring at this one and just drinking in all the details. What planet are they on, and what are they doing?
