15x15cm An accomplished original pen and ink illustration by Gerard Quinn for E C Tubb's short story 'Star Ship' published in the journal, New Worlds 35 in 1959. The image shows five men with bare torsos, deep in discussion, with heavy machinery behind them. The typed label below reads 'QUINN Star Ship by E.C.Tubb New Worlds 35' with further instructions in pen to the verso and 'Nova'. At the time of publication Science Fantasy was under the editorship of John Carnell who commissioned much of Quinn's work during this period. Like so much commercial illustrative work drawings such as these were viewed as essentially disposable and original artwork of this type is uncommon. Star Ship was part of a series featuring a generational star ship whose protagonist had to eliminate individuals who had become a burden to the society onboard.
