Blaze of Imagination

When the pulps died out, in the 50s, after decades of service to the imagination, sci-fi digests carried on the tradition. And Kelly Freas was the continuity factor that the transition needed. There were others of course, but Freas not only kept the visual spark of imagination alive, he fanned it to a great blaze.

I think I could survive on nothing more than a diet of old pulp cover art and an occasional serving of H. J. Ford.

Amen brother.

But thankfully, there's a zillion other genres and artists to keep our appetite from ever being jaded. I raise a toast to the paint pushers and ink scratchers of then, now and tomorrow.
