Vol 20, No 2: November, 1949

This is an original pulp magazine with fantastic cover art featuring (what else?) a scantily-clad woman.

Original stories by Murray Leinster, Clifford D. Simak, Jack Vance, John Taine, Carter Sprague, Robert Moore Williams, William Fitzgerald, Rene LaFayette.

Artwork includes the great Virgil Finlay, probably the most collected SF artist ever.

Magazine has NOT been trimmed (i.e., the covers still overlap the page edges a little--this is important to the collectible value). Edge tears to covers, the front cover torn along the hinge about a quarter of the way from bottom.

Condition for this type of zine is very good overall. Colors are still bright, pages are clean & all attached, the wear to the covers does not detract from the artwork.

Measures 10" high by 7" wide
