Never before seen LBA "fan art" artwork.

Found this while browsing Peter Elson's (1947–1998) site.

He was the author of some of my favourite sci-fi book covers! Just goes to show that there are, or where LBA fans in the most unusual of places...!

@fanlba, as I said, I was browsing the site of one of my favourite book cover authors when I found this.

Pretty awesome.

Though I wonder what's up with that scene. I know it's from the cover, but this area around the Temple of Bù was never an area where Dino-Fly could move around.

not that i really expect an explanation but i too always found it weird that the temple of bu seems to be floating in god knows where. also when twinsen steps out of it with the book it doesn't look like there's a way for him to get back to the surface.
