Hi Dean- Thanks for your great comments of Pfeiffer's Doc Savage work. I have always loved his art on Doc and have been mystified why other Doc fans hated it so much. I think my interest in Pfeiffer has made other friends and Doc fans take a second look and re-consider their feelings. Feel free to email at any time firstname.lastname@example.org Courtney Rogers Glendale, AZ

Here is the Society of Illustrators 16th annual hardcover book showcasing the annual national exhibition from Februay 14 through April 19th 1974 in NYC.
As shown above, Fred had 3 pieces in the exhibition. Too bad the pictures were not in color as they deserve to be.
Thanks to Stan Shaw who let me know that Pfeiffer appeared in Illustrators 15, 16 and 19.
Shown is Pfeiffer's address at the time.

This Bantam cover features a big and bold Pfeiffer signature.
I always thought that the back illustration did not resemble Pfeiffer's work. Then one day I found a previous printing of this book and that illustration was the front cover of the book!
So the back cover shown here is not a Pfeiffer, as suspected!
This is the first instance that I am aware of where the front cover of a book was featured on the back cover of a subsequent printing.

I found this book in St. Petersburg, FL while visiting a used bookstore with pals Scotty Phillips and Billy Lampkin.
The darkened eyes of the faces drew me to suspect this might be a Pfeiffer. I was upheld in my suspicions when I scanned the book and found the signature underneath the tape at the bottom right corner.

This book states on the back cover top right corner: "Painting by Fred Pfeiffer". Gotta love that!
The Fawcett book mentions the hardcover printing of 1976, but does not state when the paperback was printed. My guess is the late 70's/early 80's.

The artwork on this cover is a re-use from the 1972 Bantam paperback called "Downfall".
The art has been enlarged and it wraps around to the back of the book.
This paperback was found in the famous Powell's Bookstore in Portland, Oregon last year.
