The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, February 1952


Cover art by Chesley Bonestell 


  1. Hi, Jonathan, Have been in London for a few days and
    checked out the magazine store on Charing Cross station to see what magazines carried art work. I couldn't find one...they all used photography, and as much as I love photography it seems a shame to have lost that side of illustration.

  2. Hello Ray, hope you had an enjoyable time in London. I've never been to the UK but hope to get there someday. I see you live in Hastings, bit eventful in 1066 there. Chesley Bonestell was a fabulous painter. Yes, most magazines now have photographs on the covers, or less skilled artwork than the piece above.
