Pulp Fantasy/Science Fiction Covers

It seems like a while since I posted some good, old-fashioned pulp fiction covers, and Golden Age Comic Books Stories comes to the rescue with 18 fantasy and science fiction titles from 1947 to 1952.  The artwork on these covers literally out of this world, and one of these days, I must read some of these stories.  Authors included A. Merrit, H. G. Wells, H. P. Lovecraft and the late Ray Bradbury.
