Pulp Galerie: Mars dans les Pulps

Mars & La Science Fiction, a French website, has
a neat gallery of covers of pulp magazines that contain stories about Mars or Martians. While not comprehensive, the gallery displays more than fifty covers from sixteen different pulps, such as Argosy, Planet Stories, and Galaxy.

The stories include pieces such as "Famine on Mars," by Frank Kelly (1934), "Thief of Mars," by Henry Hasse (1941), and "The Martians Came to Dinner," by Charles Stearns (1953).

Pictured above: Vol. 1, No. 3, May 1939, issue of Startling Stories, featuring cover art by H. V. Brown for The Prisoner of Mars, a novel by Edmond Hamilton.
