      In the same series, with similar design, there’s Die Zeitstrasse by Kurt Mahr (Terra Taschenbuch 232). Illustration by Dean Ellis. Picture credit to Michael Studt on Flickr.

      Good addition, Mathieu!

      Michael has several dozen covers from the Terra Taschenbuch series, but these two appear to be the only ones with Marvin, at least in his collection. Die Zeitstrasse is from 1974. ISFDB has a list of the full series.
