These books were Del Rey science fiction paperbacks from the late 70s or early 80s with Darrell K. Sweet covers. I am hoping someone knows the titles. I found the pics on a Darrell Sweet website and would like to read the books.

Number 1:


Number 2:


Hope you can help!

That site doesn't allow hotlinking.
The first image is on Page 3 (http://www.fortunecity.com/roswell/price/12/sweet/sweet3.html), lower right.
The second is on Page 4 (http://www.fortunecity.com/roswell/price/12/sweet/sweet4.html), top middle.

Sadly, I don't know of them. I like that 2nd one though.

The first one is to Ballantine Del Rey's reissue of Robert A. Heinlein's Citizen of the Galaxy.

I had a look and while they were all familiar, I couldn't place either of the two you're interested in, although I'm quite sure that the top left cover was for one of Piers Anthony's Xanth series -- was there one called *Ogre*? Years since I read it ...

I got to looking around for more Darrell Sweet covers and found one here -- http://www.neverend.com/covers.htm -- for *Manhattan Transfer* by John E. Stith. I just love this one -- maybe because it's so reminiscent of *Cities in Flight* artwork! The book is a good read too!

I found a site for Sweet's "Wheel of Time" (Robert Jordan) covers ... And he does Shannara ... He's everywhere!

Keep googling and found the knight & dragon cover! http://ofearna.us/books/forward.html -- *Villains by Necessity* by Eve Forward [1995].

OK, sort of tired of this now ... But I want to leave you with this site -- http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/ -- great for lots of potted biographies and showing almost all the bookcovers! The camels are probably in there somewhere ...

I can't ID the other one, but the last one on page 5 is from Heinlein's Red Planet

Tut tut ... I see I was on the wrong page altogether ... but time well wasted, as it led me to a couple of interesting things ...
