DISCUSSION

The robotic creature depicted in the above cover art is fashioned after armour of the middle ages. Note the shoulder cover plates with their sharp protruding edges. The artist suggests some type of viewing technology is present in the robot's eye-ports. Some type of emission is drawn as transmitted by the robot's left eye. This could suggest a radar or laser beam. In such a case, the artist struck upon a prophetic technology.
