Below are three original paintings by Rodney Matthews for covers that appear to have never been released.

As of October 2016 ~ I have been able to contact Rodney Matthews about the 3 questionable covers and he tells me that they indeed were commisioned in 1977 by Dom Rodi, the art director at Tandem/Universal Books, who had seen some of Matthews "Moorcock" covers but for some reason they never were published. Rodney had "publisher proofs" of these 3 covers and was about to share them with me. He was in the process of getting married and moving his studio, he asked if I could wait until after he settled down into his new life. Then in May of 2017 he notified me that the proofs in question could no longer be located. But at least we know the story of the 3 covers that don't exist.
