“Urish’s Bane” | Art by Michael Whelan for the cover of _The Vanishing Tower_ (Daw 1977; Grafton 1984); also used for Cirith Ungol’s _One Foot in Hell_ (1986) | “[There sat on Urish’s throne] a fat, scaly thing of yellow and green and black. Brown bile dripped from its grinning mouth and it raised one of its many paws in a mockery of a salute.” — “To Snare the Pale Prince” #elric
