Horror art – Early sci-fi and horror ‘pulp’ magazines

Here are some of my favorite covers from early ‘pulp’ horror and sci-fi magazines. These were the small press publications that featured fiction short stories by HP Lovecraft, August Dereleth, Robert Block, and others, before they were well known and their stories were collected for anthologies. Publications like these were around from the 1920’s to the 1970’s.

Some of these issues are still around to purchase. I own a few myself. If you are interested in collecting, check out ebay and other great sites for collectable magazine fiction.
