I can't find any artist reference on any of the multiple copies of McIntyre's Wrath of Khan
novelization in my collection (Pocket 1st, later Pocket, Gregg Press, Macdonald, SFBC...) but I'm pretty sure the cover art is by Boris. The style seems pretty unmistakable. I sent Vallejo a message on his website, asking if he painted it. I'll report back when (if?) he responds.
Received this email today from Julie Bell:
Yes, that was painted by Boris! Thank you for asking.
Best wishes to you,
Julie and Boris

I responded with some fannish squeeing -- I've been a fan of Vallejo's work since I was in high school, when he did a series of covers for Philip Jose Farmer's World of Tiers
paperbacks from Ace Books.
