Month of McGinnis: “Assignment—Sorrento Siren”

Part of a month-long celebration of Robert McGinnis’ book covers.

Assignment—Sorrento Siren, by Edward S. Aarons
(Gold Medal, 1963).

Art Scott writes in his forthcoming book, The Art of Robert E. McGinnis (Titan), that “McGinnis did a series of covers for the Sam Durell ‘Assignment’ spy series, beginning in the 1960s and ending in the mid-’70s. Most of the stories were set in foreign locales, allowing McGinnis to work interesting local color into the backdrops.”
