I’m not the fan of science-fiction, at least when it relates to space travel, that I used to be. One thing I’ve never grown tired of is the bizarre artwork that tends to accompany it.
The illustration above comes from H. Beam Piper’s story Ullr Uprising (1952), available for free at Project Gutenberg. There are more illustrations in the ebook. I might just have to give this one a try, if for no other reason than to see if I can decipher the artwork afterward.
