I find them quite awesome, it is fun to see the more rare cooler ones. I bought a short box of late 40’s to 50’s Sci Fi ones because I think the covers are cool and I find a lot of the stories from that era good reads. Got a few bedsheets too

Just to spice things up a bit, here's a Thrilling Wonder Stories that I've had for years, but haven't posted anywhere before...




Note: Image isn't as crisp as I'd like, but that's because it hasn't been scanned on my HP Scanjet 8300. Alas, this is a typical iPad "shaky-cam" shot.
