First bought this in 1975 when it initially came out; stupidly discarded it somewhere along the way. Some great Chris Achilleos artwork in it (on which, check this Gutterbreakz post). Question raised by Achilleos's cover art for the Target books but also by film poster art (a largely disappeared genre now) - why is it so effective and evocative? In the case of Achilleos's art, it was no doubt because it put the humans and the monsters on the same plane of reality, something which Dr Who's special effects managed only rarely.
