Shep's Playboy Artwork
from fan Jim Yellen
I've collected the arwork that accompanied Shep's Playboy stories and compiled them into a website where they can all be viewed. There were 23 short stories published between 1964 and 1981 and I've got 21 of them included here. I'm working on getting the last two.
