    Admiring this Rudolph Belarski cover of the Winter 1944 edition of Thrilling Wonder Tales and I noticed the byline of Ross Rocklynne. While he’s not one of the A-listers from science fiction’s Golden Age, I can say that every one of his stories that I’ve read was thoroughly enjoyable.

    No artist is credited for the cover of the January 1954 issue of Startling Stories. As I look at it, I’m just wondering why all the men have spacesuits, but the woman doesn’t. It’s a pretty common sight in the cover art of the era and it makes absolutely no sense.

    I only know Ed Emshwiller as a #scifi #pulp #artist, but apparently he was also something of an experimental filmmaker. https://t.co/IbCO2mOYqB

    If the cover of the Summer 1950 issue of Fantastic Story Quarterly looks familiar, it’s because the Earle Bergey painting was also used for the cover of the Winter 1946 issue of Thrilling Wonder Stories.

    The gorgeous cover of this June 1951 issue of Thrilling Wonder Stories is by none other than the prolific and talented Earle Bergey. https://t.co/odjvmyVpCa

    I always wondered how the women on these covers don’t need spacesuits. This lovely example of this paradox is by the prolific pulp artist Lawrence Stevens which graced the April 1949 cover of Super Science Stories. You can download a copy of the magazine at https://archive.org/details/Super_Science_Stories_v05n02_1949-04.

    Kay Rogers didn’t have many short story credits to her name, but Letter to a Tiger was the cover story for this October 1953 issue of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction with art by the incomparable Emsh. https://t.co/3Gi9sS5E5U

    The memorable artwork of the legendary Norman Saunders graces the cover of this April–May 1939 issue of forgotten pulp magazine Marvel Science Stories.

    Is it Doc Savage or “The Rock” Savage? Either way, it would be an exciting film to see. https://t.co/ZOyBlrpRiH

    Rumour has it a new Flash Gordon movie is in the works. Can Captain Future and Doc Savage be far behind? http://t.co/cTd2gOiixi

      Pretty cool. It would have been nice to have the ability to have a few image import options (I want that rocketeer on a cover to be ME), but still great. Thanks.

    Maybe I should ditch those mutual funds and invest my retirement money into some of these pulp masterworks. http://t.co/GBo22uOJ

      Some really nice stuff in those auctions. Anything by a ‘name’ artist are way to pricey (for me) but I’m surprised by the affordable cost of some really nice pieces by what I can only assume are ‘no name’ artists.

      Welcome back!

    To usher in the new year, here is the latest in our long line of pulp-themed science fiction calendars. 2012 marks the ninth time we've offered a calendar and judging from the thousands of downloadsthey get each year, they remain as popular as ever.
    Space babes in distress is a theme that never gets old so each month of the calendar displays a classic example of another harried female space explorer as depicted on the cover of pulp magazines from years gone by.
    Download your copy for free from http://www2.theendoftheuniverse.ca/calendar2012/calendar2012.pdf. If you print it out, be sure to scale it to fit your paper size. It's designed for letter-size paper, but if you use A4, or some other size, you will have to adjust your printer settings accordingly.
    If you want to check out previous editions, click on the following links to get the 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009,  2010  and 2011 installments.
    If you're new to TEOTU, don't just leech the calendar and run. Take a second to add our newsfeed to your reader or follow us on Twitter so you can get a regular injection of irregular science fiction links throughout the year.
    We hope your 2012 is a happy and prosperous one and that all of your science fiction dreams come true.
