Wednesday Cover: Battlestar Galactica

This painting - yet another by Frank Frazetta - first appeared in TV Guide ads for the 3-hour premiere of the original Battlestar Galactica back in September of 1978. It subsequently graced the second Galactica paperback novel by Robert Thurston, The Cylon Death Machine (Based on the episode "Gun On Ice Planet Zero.") and this Byron Preiss reprint of the Thurston novelization of the premiere episode.

Frazetta painted at least two more illustrations for use in the promotion of the series, which suggests that maybe someone at ABC knew what they were doing!

By the way... I've started another new blog.....
