John Brunner’s The Sheep Look Up is one of my favorite books I’ve read in the past year. The environmental dystopia offers a frighteningly believable and ultimately devastating glimpse into America’s future. Ballantine’s 1976 cover featuring the work of Murray Tinkelman might not be his most impressive work (check out his H.P. Lovecraft covers), but it did attract me enough to pick up the novel and bring it home.
