Flight Into Yesterday

Earle Bergey had a way with painting women who were all woman, and painting men that were . . . well . . . um . . . that is . . . well, anyway.

Yeah, that angled spaceship on the first cover looks a good deal more "manly" than the chap on the second.

Startling stories is one of my all-time favourite pulp magazines, though

That first cover is actually May 1951; they're not both 1949.

I'm lucky enough to have about 20 issues of Startling; including both these issues. Just some wonderfully fun pulp reading & art! The 51 issue has the last Captain Future story; while the 49 features a rare Science Fiction story by John D. MacDonald.

That was a typo on my part, I'm just so tired. But you can see on the file name for it that I knew the facts at some point.

I've had many issues of Startling pass through my hands over the years. As you say, great fun.

Outer space bikinis ARE the vest!
