" In this universe the night was falling; the shadows were lengthening towards an east that would not know another dawn. But elsewhere the stars were still young and the light of morning lingered; and along the path he once had followed, Man would one day go again"

Arthur C. Clarke Against the Fall of Night

New Arrivals; SFBC. Trip to the Moon

Hi, I am working on some more substantive entries, but I spent this week reorganizing my collection. So for now some more new arrivals.

Another quirky cover for Amazing Stories 
by Ed Valigursky (Sept. 1956).

Future Science Fiction offers a more workman like depiction of events on the moon. Cover by  Rudolph Belarski, Dec. 1955.

The cover is uncredited

I have seen countless membership offers for The Science Fiction Book Club (SFBC) and have bought a number of the Conklin anthologies and Asimov or Van Vogt collections that were used as inducements. But I have never seen this offer before. 

Despite the blurb below, we know Lewis Padgett was actually the husband and wife team of Henry Kuttner and C.L. Moore, who were responsible for some of the best genre breaking science fiction of the 1940's/50's including "Mimsy Were the Borogoves" and "Vintage Season".

Cover by Mitchell Hooks (1954)
