ORBAN
   Working name of US illustrator Paul Orban (?1896-?1974). He executed 7 covers and many interior ILLUSTRATIONS for a remarkable number of magazines (1933-60), including If, Future, Space Science Fiction and The Shadow, but is mostly associated in readers' minds with the 1940s ASF,where he did many of the interior illustrations 1933-54. His black-and-white work was often symbolic of a story rather than directly representational, regularly placing faces or figures over geometrical abstractions and using bold cross-hatching; it was always competent and sometimes more. Brian W. ALDISS has called O "an incurable romantic in a field of incurable romantics".
