Death Makes a Mistake is an eerie, dark, and foreboding interior pulp illustration by Harold McCauley which appeared in the January 1943 issue of the sci-fi/fantasy pulp magazine Amazing Stories accompanying the P.F. Costello story of the same title. The caption beneath reads “Reggie looked at the second rose, and then he knew…!” Nicely matted and framed under glass, this is a very strong example of McCauley’s interior pulp work, recalling Virgil Finlay in many ways.
