23490709-LlyrdisJust a gallery of wonderful covers from old pulps.
I always liked the covers of Startling stories, and one of them in particular, that you see here on the right, is the image that flashes in my mind when I think about pulp covers.
All these covers were created by a guy called Earle Bergey, and this post and this gallery dedicated to him.
He was specialised in something that was called “Bim, BEM, Bum!” – a beautiful woman menaced by a monster of some sort, with a hero ready to act heroic.

Enjoy!

  1. There’s a new series on BoingBoing called Sci-Fi Sundays that I heartily recommend. In fact, your post on Earle Bergey has a tie-in to Bim, BEM, Bum IMO — specifically a well tailed fellow rocketed skyward 🙂
