Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Thrilling Wonder Stories, April 1941

And the people who ride the subway in New York think they've got it bad! At least they don't have an alien coming through a wormhole and shooting a ray gun at them. Or maybe they do, I don't know, I've been on a New York City subway car. I do know, however, that there's a mighty good line-up of authors in this issue of THRILLING WONDER STORIES: Henry Kuttner, Clifford D. Simak, Eando Binder (probably just Otto Binder on this one), Robert Arthur, Robert Moore Williams, and Maurice Renard, translated by a much more familiar name to me, Georges Surdez. I really like the SF pulps from this era. That's an Earle Bergey cover, by the way, although it doesn't really resemble the "space babes" covers he's more famous for.

A bit goofy, but it does something right: it makes me want to know what's going on.

Bergey is always good, even when he's weird, like he is here. And I've read that Kuttner story. It's a good one, quite thought provoking as his so often are.

I bought this one, along with some others, just for the Kuttner stories. I got sidetracked and never got around to reading some of them, including this one. Need to fix that.
