You know what sucks? Cracking open an admittedly banged up old pulp magazine…and realizing that fifty years ago someone used it as an ashtray.
It does have a great Allen Anderson cover though, and a Ray Bradbury short called Death-by-Rain, so it’s not all bad:)
Honestly, at first i didn’t know what to write here other than “Sorry!” And then it came to me…
Did you ever see the movie Heavy Metal? Animated scifi anthology for mature viewers, where a malicious orb called The Loc-nar appears in each story, causing havoc & evil?
Well…what if the Loc-nar got into this magazine?? Look at those pages again! In the first story it causes war on Mars, then turns a humble alien plant into a carnivorous beast, why, in the final story it seems to burn a man’s heart out!
Not to mention the story titles, Moon of Treason? Suicide Command? Flowering Evil?!
