I want to warn anyone in the sf art business to forget the auctioneers Illustration House in NYC (212 966 9444). On advice of some sf artists, I gave them 16 storyboards by Bonestell to auction, which they sold for thousands of dollars in May.
But they never sent me the money, and won't respond to letters or calls.
The NYC Complaints Bureau is on their tail, but there are reports that they have moved very recently. Beware!
