Born in New York Virgil Warden Finlay is synonymous with the illustrations of numerous sic- fi magazines including  ‘Weird Tales’ and ‘Amazing Stories’ Finlay served in the U.S. Army during World War II, and saw extensive combat in the South Pacific theatre, notably on Okinawa, and did posters and illustrations for the Morale Services during his three years of military service. He resumed his artistic career after demobilization, doing a considerable amount of work for science fiction magazines and books. Finlay also wrote poetry throughout his adult life. Virtually none was published in his lifetime, though significant samples have been printed posthumously.
