Sci Fi Rules

   In order to provide full disclosure, I must admit to at least one vice: I love science fiction. I read paperbacks in the genre voraciously in my youth but, by then, the science fiction magazine was in decline. In the 20s and 30s, there were numerous monthly magazines offering the best fiction from esteemed authors in the field like Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, Poul Anderson and many others. Here are just a few samples of the colorful, intriguing and often lurid cover art from these pioneering publications.

Cool city of the future. Flying cars, anyone?
