This cover is featured in the book The Great American Paperback by Richard A. Lupoff (2001) on page 212 with the following caption:
”Doubled with a Koontz PBO (Soft Come the Dragons, cover by Jack Gaughan) this is one of the books that the author doesn’t particularly care to see reprinted. Koontz was a competent but unremarkable science fiction writer in his early years, then found his métier in high tension suspense and borderline horror and leaped to the bestseller list.”
