Astounding SCIENCE FICTION

Astounding Science Fiction 1959 January 040I don’t know if the covers are cut down versions of the American covers but on the UK editions they are a bit on the dull side. I haven’t listed contents for all the issues I have, but I might get round to it sometime in the future, then again I might not.

I chose the illustration I did as Beam Piper could have been writing about our current leaders.
