Description: Fleeing townspeople, fire in the sky

Provenance: From a famous collection.

Comment: When I first saw this, I said… “That's got to be Robert LoGrippo.” Now, quite a while later, having removed the paper from the backing, my assumption has been borne out. I'd also have guessed that it was most likely for a Ballantine Adult Fantasy title… It's even got a number 2036 on back, so I make the logical leap to it being Ballantine Adult Fantasy book #02036. Well, as my Mrs. likes to say: “You can't be brilliant every day...” So, it's not that number from that publisher, but figures to be right around that period (early 1970s)

Price: $1,600 (+ $80 domestic shipping)
