A few Weird Tales from my collection.  They are a little the worse for wear, but their contents are just as good as ever.  Great reading!  Bloch, Bradbury, Derleth, Wellman, Bok and many more...

I believe the first cover is by Matt Fox and then there are two Lee Brown Coye covers, plus the Bok!  It doesn't get much better than that!

Oops! None of the covers are by Bok. The last one is by A.R. Tilburne. I thought the 1st one was the Bok.

Here's the first 3 issues of Fantastic Adventures...a Ziff-Davis publication that began in May 1939. The first several issues were bed-sheet issues, which meant they were of unusually large size for a pulp. The back covers are of interest....illustrator Frank Paul painted a scene from a different planet each issue. Fantastic Adventures lasted till 1953.

bigbud, thank you very much for sharing those great images.  The Paul paintings are especially cool.  What a brilliant imagination the man had!

Yes he sure did! The art on many old pulps is just superb and fascinating. I just don't run into pulps for sale like I use to. If I do they tend to be Railroad Stories or Pop. Mechanics. But I don't stop looking....always treasures to be found if you keep digging! Ha!

Yes, people read in those days! And sci-fi was very popular. People fully expected that mankind would have a colony on Luna if not on Mars by century's end.

Yea G. Edward, I know what you are saying. Plus the ladies of the house object to some of those covers. But us guys gotta have some fun.

Well I still don't understand why they'd have a problem.
