Scottish artist Wilson McLean was inducted by the Society of Illustrators into its Hall of Fame in 2010.

Look Here: Six (more) SF covers with art by Paul Lehr

Keywords: Wine of the Dreamers, Space Gypsies, The End of Eternity, The Rakehells of Heaven, The Phaeton Condition, The Stainless Steel Rat Wants You!
