Early Version of the Cover by Paul Imrie
Shrewsbury is the medieval market town that Power escapes to. Here he stays at the old coaching inn, the Lion Hotel. From a research photo of the hotel's first floor, Paul drew an illustration which appears near the end of the book.One of the scariest illustrations. In a nightmare which merges elements of his day, and his underlying fears about a modern day pandemic, Power dreams of Heath, a ancient plague village and its lonely chapel. Here is an early sketch of the Chapel. The final version is in the published book.
