Fantastic Novels

Golden Age Comic Book Stories posted another series of great pulp fiction paperback covers, including science fiction, fantasy, etc.  They are all great, but I could not resist the cover for The Conquest of the Moon Pool.  The pretty girl and the ray gun are iconic, but also commonplace, props.  The background of spear-wielding frog warriors, however, puts this cover over the top.
