An alternate cover for the October 1957 issue of Imagination Science Fiction, by Lloyd Rognan, illustrating the interior story "You Can't Buy Eternity" by Dwight V. Swain. This oil on canvas board original illustration differs from the published cover (which was also painted by Rognan) in several respects, notable the blond in peril on the published cover is envisioned in this rendering as a brunette. Which lends credence to the belief that a pulp cover artists life was not easy and was often subject to publishers whims and guidance. A published complete copy of the magazine is included in the sale.
