Cover Art of Leigh Brackett

The website Of Men & Monsters has an awesome gallery of cover art for author Leigh Brackett, the Queen of Space.

From the February 1940 issue of Astounding Science Fiction, which contains Brackett’s first short story,
The Martian Quest,” to the 1977 anthology The Best of Leigh Brackett, the gallery displays forty-eight pulp magazine issues and eleven of her books.

Note that Brackett's The Secret of Sinharat (1964) is scheduled to be republished by Paizo Publishing this month as part of its Planet Stories series.

Pictured above: Volume 34, No. 2, June 1949 issue of Thrilling Wonder Stories, featuring cover art by Earle Bergey for Brackett’s novel Sea-Kings of Mars, which was later published as the Ace Double novel The Sword of Rhiannon (1953).
