The Covers of Fantastic Universe


by Edmund Emshwiller

It’s a new year and I don’t know about you but I feel like looking to the future.  From 1953 to 1960, Fantastic Universe did just that.  It was one of the many sci-fi magazines to be published in the 50s.  While it was never as financially successful as some of the other magazines of the age, it has since been acclaimed for the quality of its writing and for its covers!

Here, to get 2022 off to a good start, are a few of the covers of Fantastic Universe:
