Chris Foss cover for the 1st edition (Ace) of the James Tiptree Jr’s 1973 debut, 10,000 Light Years from Home. This is a great collection, by the way, if you can deal with the extreme spaceships-and-aliens sci-fi-ness of it. Tiptree aka Alice Sheldon is a great stylist, unafraid of experimentation, handles interesting subtexts gracefully, and is able to be simultaneously warmly entertaining and actually pretty totally dark, usually via overriding black humor.
